Courtyard Flowers

I am tempted to take photos of flowers in the courtyard every day, but sometimes the blooms are gone before I get down there with my camera.  This morning, I got lucky – all the blooms were still on the plants.  Enjoy these beautiful specimens – and they smell wonderful, too!

Earth laughs in flowers.

Brown-Eyed Susan Vine

Decided to end with something different.  The Brown-eyed Susan Vine is new to me, but so very charming.

We don’t hide all our beauty on the inside of the store ~ we like to share it outside, too!

P.S. I should mention that, aside from the vine, I have made up the names of the rose varieties based on their color, I don’t know their official names.  I can find out, however, if you are interested in a particular bloom.

Take a stroll through our garden…

It’s such a lovely day here in East Tennessee, I decided to take a stroll through the garden here in the store.  These flowers will not soon loose their blooming beauty.  Enjoy with me…

Remember that silver box you bought at Christmas time?  Here it is again, re-envisioned for spring!

This delicate blush carnation is one of my favorite stems.

It is apparent that our talented custom floral staff is having a wonderful time with our spring bloom selection!   Hope you can soon come by for a stroll.
