We got love for you NOLA………


Our good vibes, prayers, and blessings go out to a group from Plano this week. They headed down to New Orleans post Mardi Gras holiday  to make a difference in the lives of some there still suffering the leftover destruction from Katrina. Preach on Micheal Franti, we have love for you too!

Have you hugged your Florist today?


Parks's rendition of a tie-dyed heart!

I’m adopting an extra name for Valentine’s Day-Hug Your Florist Day!  Or, if the touchy feely is not your gig, at least be thankful and acknowledge the long hard hours and sleepless nights  these guys put in to make this day special for you and your honey, or whomever you decide to appreciate on days like this.  Holidays are exhausting for florists, I should know, I come from 2 generations of them. My Grandad is 79 and still goes in to work every day. It can be a strain on your body, arthritis in the hands, lots of aches and pains from forming thousands upon thousands of flowers into beautiful displays of love, kindness, remembrance, and celebration. I’d like to give a shout out to my family that has provided our hometown with decades of flower power, love you guys!! Support your own hometown families and buy local, they cannot survive without you; and give them a smile that says “thank you” to the ones that make it possible………..

Greeting cards now available!


I’m really really excited to be offering photo cards now available for sale, please see my Greeting Cards page for more information and how to order. It’s been really fun compiling some photos we have taken for these; I’ve given these away in the past as gifts and they always seem to be a hit. Please check the greeting cards page out, let me know any comments and questions you have, and spread the word!

Thanks for your interest and support!




We scored a little tikes basketball goal last weekend when we found it hanging out by someone’s dumpster in our alleyway. Jeff just cleaned it up a little and it looks brand new. Still need to get him a little basketball to play with, but it was an awesome find for an early birthday present! That’s freecycling at it’s best……..
