Mother's Day 2013


This Sunday is Mother's Day, and the shop is totally full of fresh flowers, plants, and fun gifts for all the moms in your life.  We have been very busy getting ready, but we are always happy to help you choose just what will make mom feel extra special.  Above is a close-up view of our absolutely gorgeous orchids.

Zooming out we see some more of the orchids, phalaenopsis and dendrobium, in all the shades of pink, white, mauve and peach.  These look great on their own with a bit of green, or added to a mix of colorful fresh-cut flowers.

Rarely are we so buried in flowers but this special time of year, so please come take some of these off our hands!  Hydrangea, lilies, peonies and lots more.

We are cranking out the arrangements and the cooler is so stocked its hard to tell what flower is where in a photo.  The solution?  Come down and we will help you pick one out in person!

A few more cooler arrangements, from the traditionally pretty to the more unusual and interesting.  We are always more than happy to put something together custom-made as well!

Here's a whole slew of anthurium plants we have in-store at the moment, in 4 and 6 inch pots, and in red, pink and white.  These guys are so pretty and really easy to care for: they like lots of light, and will thrive when watered thoroughly after the soil becomes dry to the touch.  The best part is, the blooms just last and last, like our love for our mothers.

Here are some more plants: bloomers, greens, succulents, lucky bamboo, baskets and dish gardens, we have them all!

Here's a bird's eye view of the miniature world that is opened up in our new fairy gardens, planted with live plants that will fill in and make a forest of imagination.  Creative moms only, please!

This arrangement is so huge it pushes the boundaries of my usual staging area for taking photos.  It is also very fragrant with stargazers, Asiatic lilies, stock, delphinium, roses, and snapdragons.

Need more smells?  Make it even bigger and add more stargazers, the aromatic peonies that are just hitting their season thanks to our late spring, and fill in with snaps, larkspur, orchids, hydrangea, and gerbera daisies.  Your mom will love it, but she may not be able to lift it!

We are open our regular hours, 9-6 on Friday, and will be here for extended hours on Saturday and Sunday, 8-6 and 8-4, respectively.  If you can't make it in, we always take orders over the phone, 763-593-1777, or our toll-free number, 1-888-893-7950.
