As Many Of You Know A Picture Of My Papa Shelling Field Peas Is Hanging In The Shop Where I Can See It Every Day. He Was A Huge Influence On My Love Of Watching Things Grow And Admiring It’s Beauty. Dahlias Were His Gardening Addiction Although He Could Grow Anything!!! He Would Bring Magazines Over And Let Me Pick What Color Dahlia I Wanted For The Next Season And They Would Be Perfect Every Year. His Tomatoes Were Always Plentiful And I’m Not Sure I’ve Ever Had One As Delicious As His. He Treated His Roses Like Babies, Meticulously Caring For Them Daily. I Found This Photo Today While Doing Some New Year Organizing And It Brought Back So Many Wonderful Memories. A Tomato Right Off The Vine With Dukes Mayo And Pepper Will Always Be A Fav ... Some Won’t Understand. As Much As Papa Was An Avid Gardener He Could Not Stand Dirty Nails. He Would Constantly Whip Out His Pocket Knife To Have Them Pristine. He Knew The Perfect Time To Harvest His Peaches And They Made For A Mean Peach Cobbler. As I Got Older He Helped Me Cultivate My Own Flower Garden. He Passed Down The Joy Taking Loved Ones Fresh Cut Flowers. After A Good Rainfall I Could Always Count On A Sunrise Phone Call With An Exact Rainfall Measurement. Sunflowers Were An Effortless Task Of Beauty For Him. I Remember As A Young Girl Walking Through His Magical Rows Of Sunflowers Being In All And Wondering How Anyone Could Grow Something So Beautiful. I Share This To Let You Know How Much Joy This Little Shop Brings To Me, And I Get Even More Joy Hearing Your Stories Of How Important Blooms Are To You And The Story Behind The Recipients Of The Blooms Your Arranging At The Shop. Sharing Blooms Is In My Roots!!! I Cannot Wait To Open For The Year In Just A Few Weeks And Continue Sharing Beautiful Blooms. I Really Look Forward To Seeing Each Of You~🌱🌸🌱🌻🌱 #everyonehasastory#sharethelove#bloom
MY BRAND! (totally thinking of that 1-800 contacts commercial) 😂
I started this little biz for so many reasons; one of the main ones being adding value to my life.
What it has evolved into is beyond any expectation and I know that I’ve barely scratched the surface.
So many times I thought about dropping it.
So many times I thought no one was listening.
So many times I wondered if I was capable.
All of those times led me to where I am today.
Whatever you have in your heart, fucking go for it! Who cares about the ‘how’s’ or the ‘what if’s’. The call you feel from within is enough to pursue ((listen to it)). ✨💖
I want to thank you for being apart of this journey with me. I truly appreciate you!
In building this to where I want it to be, the truth is that I can’t do it without a tribe of people. Every like, DM, & comment matter in this crazy world of social media. All I ask is for your engagement & sharing of these messages. 🙏🏽✨
Let’s all help each other grow & bloom! 🌸 #srgbloomingboutique

Finally was able to take a better shot of that #Iwanagara Apple Blossom. The last one was under an CFL light. This is closer to its natural appearance and color.
