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.
