The weather weaves back and forth from warm to chilly and blustery this month but the groundhog is promising an early spring. As brisk as it is, the camellias . . .

Spring Baby April 09 2015, 0 Comments
It's why I like the dirt, why I rubber-neck when I drive past a highway median covered in wild flowers, why pollen covered, furry bees humming away all make me happy. I'm an April baby and as carpe diem as they come. Sure, there was the occasional late season snow storm on my birthday in good ol' NYC, but down here in Savannah, I'm already feeling behind on my raised beds.
But no fear, I made six little succulent boxes this morning, plopped down on the concrete in front of the shop, planting away. When I left later that afternoon, Taryn and I realized we'd sold five of them! Poor me! I guess I have to play in the dirt some more tomorrow ;)
Happy Spring and happy gardening!
Is Spring on its Way? February 28 2015, 0 Comments
The groundhog did not lie this year and although we haven't seen much snow in Savannah, we've had our fair share of dreary, wet, cold + dark days. It made me happy to put little pots of sunshine outside of the shop in the form of daffodils. Their happy faces defy the steely sky.
But this native New Yorker still is a wimp and catalogs with sunny blue skies and waving palm trees showcasing summer bikinis and warm sand seem far, far away.
So, we're bringing spring inside with beautiful big ficus trees and the ever hip fiddle leaf fig. The succulents and terrarium plants are keeping cozy inside and we're building out our den (so to speak) with some fun, fresh and beautiful new products. When the sun finally does come out, you'll want to stop by the shop and "get your spring on". (photo courtesy of http://bloesem.blogs.com)

Getting Excited For Fall October 24 2014, 0 Comments
So here in Savannah it finally feels like fall. Chilly nights and nippy toes and noses and animals curling in a bit tighter with us on the bed; yup, it's officially autumn.
It's rare we do not have a wedding on Saturday and I've been itching to work on our website and play with tremendous flowers, weeds, dried branches off the railroad track and any other odd organic piece I might forage. (I am certain I am part squirrel).
Stay tuned and have a gander at what's new for the fall. We're "cooking up a storm" in our flower kitchen and can't wait for you to see what we're up to. Time for my cozy bed.. I'm the last one up. Good night!
A Sunday Morning September 14 2014, 0 Comments
I had to check the clock first as soon as I typed the title to see if it was indeed still morning. It is.. for another thirty minutes. Russ just went to return his way-too big Tonka toy of a truck that was a loaner since his is in the shop, but man, it could haul three weddings worth of rentals I'm pretty certain.
Thinking about this odd-in-between weather here in Savannah where Summer and Fall are arm wrestling and neither one seems to have the upper hand.
We're ready for a mountain trip, crisp apples and funky colored gourds and crunchy leaves.. We need a little trip.
The photo above was from an autumnal, colorful photoshoot we did with Mackensey Alexander and Ivory + Beau last year.. It captures the mood I'm in this cloudy, restful Sunday.

At last.... July 23 2014, 0 Comments
Although we still have a lot of work to do, we're thrilled to finally have our online shop be live! We've been busy in the shop too with a wonderful, full spring wedding season making way for new products and flora to our botanical boutique's growing collection.
If you're in Savannah, we'd love for you to come by and say hello and "adopt" an airplant or succulent, or two. Our workshops are soon to be announced and we think you'll love them :)
How Exciting! December 06 2013, 0 Comments
