"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."  ~John Lubbock

 Our Late Summer Palette Pops with hot yellows, blues, corals, and herbs.

Gorgeous Kiero Roses

Local Coral Zinnias

You can catch a glimpse in this shot of the Artemesia, Scented Geranium, Mint, and Sage

  We have a great selection of old world style boxes and cement containers

We love these primitive-meets-contemporary clear cubes.  
They are topped with a metal lid with various holes for fresh blooms.

New tins in 3 different shapes and sizes and 3 different hues, fawn grey, light celery, and soft yellow.

Great Cement Containers

August's flower of the month is the Gladiolus
                                {half price all month!}

The language of flowers developed during the highly conservative period of the Victorian era. The Victorians were strongly restricted by the rules of etiquette when it was considered totally inappropriate to express feelings of love or affection. The "Language of Flowers" therefore evolved when a message was assigned to specific flower such as the Gladiolus. A lover could then send flowers which conveyed a hidden romantic meaning.
The meaning of the August Birth Flower, the Gladiolus
is sincerity & symbolizes strength of character.

The hidden message of the Birth Flower, the Gladiolus, so favored during the Victorian era was  "Love at first sight".*
