Valentine's Day 2012 (Part 2)

Sometimes a dozen red roses is not quite the right gift on Valentine's day, whether you are giving to a friend, family member, or someone that you would like to eventually be sending red roses to, but haven't quite reached that stage.  We have so many options and gift ideas in the shop right now, we want to share some of them with you.  Like the 12 long-stemmed roses above, in stunning pink and lavender hues, here's some special things you can find that say "Be Mine" in many different ways.

Clever (or not so clever) puns about "two lips" are entirely optional when you give beautiful Minnesota-grown tulips as gifts.  We can put them in a nice arrangement alone or with some other nice fresh cut flowers and greens, or wrap them up for you to take them home.  The best part is they will remind everyone who sees them that spring is coming soon!

Speaking of spring, we have a selection of ready-to-go bulb gardens in the shop that are sprouting up like crazy.  If you don't have much of a way with plants, its fine with these guys, they just like a splash of water now and then, and they'll be blooming in a matter of weeks.  We always love to share our knowledge of plant care with our customers, and these are great for beginners.  Also, what better way to say "our Love will grow and grow" to your special someone?

I already see a touch of color in this one!

These Anthurium (ann-THIR-ee-um) plants such a cool a colorful gift year-round gift, but especially for Valentine's because the flowers have one big petal shaped just like a heart!  (Well, the iconic version, not an actual heart organ) (and Frank would correct me to say that it's not technically a petal but a modified bracht called a spathe)  <3  For more info on these fun tropical plants check here or read the rather jargon-y wiki page here.

Here are couple of examples of Valentine's colored Cyclamen (SIGH-cla-men) we have in the store.  There's lots more blooming and green plants to choose from, so come check 'em out!

These lovely lavender and white Azaleas (ah-ZAY-lee-ah) are just about ready to pop open to full bloom, and there are lots of blooms on them.  

As mentioned in the previous post, we will be open extended hours, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
