Even though it is only March 14th, and we should still be buried up to our you know what in snow, it is SPRING here in Northern Minnesota!  The front door is open, the snow is gone, the street sweeper has been driving around town cleaning up the sand from the winter, and we're ready for flip-flops.

Spring flowers always make me giddy.  The heady, romantic scent that fills the shop at this time of year is beyond words, and the lovely creations of the last week are enough to make even the grumpiest person perk up and smile. 

                  hydrangea, stock, lisianthus, hyacinth, and clematis are some of my favorite blooms

boronia heather, cymbidium orchids, ranunculus, scabiosa pods, hydrangea, bicolor carnations, clematis vine, kale, and french double tulips...delightful!

eriostamen, hyacinth, tulips, blooming thistle, carnations, clematis

A new shipment arrived this morning with more boronia heather, acacia, genista, and jasmine...all wonderfully scented blooms, as well as iris, tulips, hydrangea, hyacinth, anemone, gerbera, broccoli carnations (so fun!), bells of Ireland, delphinium, lilies, and hanging amaranthus.  I can hardly wait until tomorrow morning!
