orange you glad?

This week is Spring Break ’round these parts, which makes for a pretty quiet flower shop. Apparently, kids on vacation from school aren’t begging their parents to take them to the local florist; unlike the pet store which was bursting at the seams with families when I stopped in to pick up dog food yesterday afternoon. Maybe we should sell flowers and puppies. {Can you even imagine!?}

Although we’re slower than usual this week, we’re managing to keep busy. This morning I worked on a small wedding order for a bride named Julie, whose wedding color was — you guessed it — orange. It’s  the new black, I’m told.

Hope your day was bright!

  3. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt
    that that you need to publish more about this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people do not speak about these topics.
    To the next! Best wishes!!

    • I’m a little biased, but I think fresh flowers in a home are such a lovely way to add good mojo to a space! :)
