June is here.

Summer is now. As the Valley shifts to summer mode and we prepare for the season ahead, our shop is doing the same. We are exploiting our best friends - the cactus -to cheer us up and standby us in the sun. We have potted varieties in the shop ready for your poolside celebration or summer birthday plant lady.  Paddle or Totem in white or terra cotta...we have the variations and the experts. Come in and let's build your look together. We endorse all plants all the time, especially amongst our desert brethren.  We hope we see you this summer and may all your beach time and pool time be just as good as it was when you were kids......

New Year: New Life: Plant Life

Happy New Year. Happy 2019. Happy you. Happy us. Happy plants.  Sophie Lee wrote for NBC "Houseplants are good for your health — and not just for their visual beauty. Why? They essentially do the opposite of what we do when we breathe: release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. This not only freshens up the air, but also eliminates harmful toxins. Extensive research by NASA has revealed that houseplants can remove up to 87 per cent of air toxin in 24 hours. Studies have also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity (by up to 15 percent!), reduce stress levels and boost your mood — making them perfect for not just your home but your work space, too."

Women and Their Cactus fields

Maricopa Women by Edward Curtis Women have long been in the fields of saguaros and prickly pear and cholla and grasses investing and collecting provisions. The shop is invested in bringing in native plants to continue our relationship with them and hoping our clients will learn from and take care of the flora of the desert.

His photographs are beautiful and daunting and eye opening to a world we think we know but yet perhaps do not. While there...

Weekend//Your Weekend//Our Weekend

We are now open Saturday and Sunday 9AM-1PM at our new location. Have you been in on a weekend yet?  The weekend, the perfect time to pop in and pick up flowers (even just a branch) for your day, your night, your waking up a bit later. Fresh flowers do something for the soul and that is why we are now here on the weekends. Something else "popping" into the shop might do for your weekend- inspire your space, your life at home.  These strawberry pots are a particular favorite. We can help this weekend select all the succulents you need for the perfect strawberry pot situation.  See you this weekend.  Love,  The Camelback Flowershop Team

It's the Little Things.

Before the beautiful madness of the holidays, we like to focus as much as we can on the little things, the spaces in between. The subtleties, the light, the refraction, the one flower that is just a bit brighter, richer than the rest and perhaps the smallest bud. A new space and the newness of our collection is giving us so many opportunities to notice the little things. And with one of our own on her way down the aisle with her beloved this weekend, its really the details, the little things we are loving.  Come in and enjoy the little things. The texture, the smell, the taste of chocolate, the littlest bouquet. Come for the spot of art, come...
