March Showers Brings Green

What a March it has been. The green is green, really green. We are celebrating the late snow on the mountains and the spring creek run off to all the desert animals and plants. Come in and experience the green. No, please, we beg you. It's our treat.  And don't forget the creosote bundle for the shower. Bring it indoors. Spring is for inside and out.  x Teresa

Spring is Springing

And all of the sudden we are all outside. We can't get enough of the warm sun hitting us in the afternoon and the coolness in the evening. We know what's coming next...just around the corner...wildflowers will cover our desert floors and turn our cactus fat.  This is the perfect time to plan what plants you want to collect for your patio or in a window sill...   *Note: We have recently welcomed these hanging Vanda Orchids to our shop after years of waiting anxiously. Their mature roots hang freely and will continue to grow if sprayed with water every other day along with proper light. Air plants work in any room. Come in and we can discuss care or...

Dahlia and van Gogh

In his hometown, Vincent van Gogh is honored at the beginning of each fall with a parade of flowers.

Completely enamored. Come in and check the dahlias...imagine building your own flower parade in...

The desert can be rash and brash, but then the light and the clouds and the drops and the breeze and the wet asphalt changes it all and you forgive her. We forgive the desert after the rain and we should forgive ourselves while we are at it...

Upcoming // Teacher Appreciation Day

For the teacher who never quits on your kid. For the teacher who notices potential. For the teacher who notices when a high five is in order. For the teacher who is learning alongside your junior higher...its your turn for flowers. All the spring blooms are here.  According to the National Education Association, May 8, 2018 is Teacher Appreciation Day. While we know about the current situation in Arizona and the #RedforED movement is in full force alongside our teachers in the private sector, that doesn't mean we cannot show appreciation to all those who are invested in our children.  Our teachers in the private and public sector could all use a little extra love this year and we are...
