Hummingbird season is here!

Hummingbirds are one of the smallest signs of summer--but what kinds of things can do you to attract them to your yard?

1. RED!

Hummingbirds are drawn to the color red, and will be drawn to yards with bright red flowers or decorations. 

2. Plant the right flowers.

The best flowers for hummingbirds are those with tubular blooms (they hold the most nectar).  Favorites include lilies, petunias, and honeysuckle.

3. Set up a feeder.

Any commercial hummingbird feeder will do, but glass feeders are easier to clean.  Feed one part sugar to three parts water and wait.

Follow these steps and your yard will soon become a hummingbird haven.

Mother's Day Roundup

Wow, what a weekend!  Between five proms, two weddings, and of course all the craziness that comes with Mother's day, this year was one for the books!  We used thousands of roses alone, not to mention hundreds of other flowers for corsages, bouquets, arrangements and everything in between.  But the fun's not over--we're just getting started!

We have outdoor hanging plants and patio pots available in a wide variety of colors and styles, so if your outdoor space is in need of a revamp, come pick something out.

With the warmer weather comes dreaded mosquito season, but we have our Murphy's Naturals line of mosquito repellent candles, incense sticks and sprays back in stock.  All natural, effective bug control!

Mosquito & Flying Insect Repellent Candle
Another effective natural bug spray is Good Earth Naturals Squito Spray, also in stock for the summer.

We're also planning some summer events at our store to celebrate the summer, stay tuned for more information. 

So, thanks for the great Mother's Day season, and we hope to see you this summer for more floral fun!

Administrative Assistant's Day-Two Trends to Know

Administrative Assistant's Day is this Wednesday, so if you'd like to show your appreciation to the hard-working administrative assistant in your life: here are two good ideas.


Flowers are one of the brightest ways to show your appreciation.  We can work with any budget to deliver a beautiful arrangement to a workplace or home in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. 

Right now we're loving watch-them-grow bulb gardens--a blend of tulip, daffodil, and hyacinth bulbs that you can watch bloom!  And, you can dry the bulbs and replant them later, making them the gift that keeps on giving. 

Gift Cards:

Another great gift idea is our gift cards!  We offer gift cards in any price range so you can give the gift of a shopping trip!  Come by the store to pick one up and see what kinds of gifts we offer-anything from candles and home goods to silk flowers and gourmet spreads!

So be prepared ad show your appreciation this Administrative Assistant's Day with a trip to our shop!
