Bloom, Blossom, Boom and the Maiden


The shop is full to the brim of branches blooming. They are part of what makes spring so magical and why poets become entrapped by their tangles and beauty. 

Here is a sampling of our spring branch line up: 

Cherry. Tulip. Magnolia. Prunus Forsythia. 

*Remember to cut branches at an extreme angle so they are able to soak up the most water. Fresh water daily is optimal.

Come gather with us around the blossoming branches during this crisp week entering into spring.

To the Spring - Friedrich Schiller 

Welcome, gentle Stripling,
Nature's darling thou!
With thy basket full of blossoms,
A happy welcome now!
Aha!--and thou returnest,
Heartily we greet thee--
The loving and the fair one,
Merrily we meet thee!
Think'st thou of my maiden
In thy heart of glee?

I love her yet, the maiden--
And the maiden yet loves me!
For the maiden, many a blossom
I begged--and not in vain!
I came again a-begging,
And thou--thou givest again:
Welcome, gentle Stripling,
Nature's darling thou--
With thy basket full of blossoms,
A happy welcome now!
