Fresh From the Flower Market

So sorry for getting this up a day late - it was administrative professionals day yesterday and all the orders came in last minute, and then I went to an artist's open studio last night, also very last minute, and didn't get home till late and was pooped after such a long day - whew!

Any how, some nice gerbera this week! Super bright!

Picked up these foxgloves, very old fashioned garden flowers. I would never promise a client foxgloves, as this is one of the flowers that shows up at random in the flower market so you never know if they're available, but I love to get them when I see them.

Tow types of kangaroo paws this week - I've been told by a well traveled client that the red ones on the right are more what you're apt to see in Australia.

And a nice detail of ornothagalum arabicum...they have tall, smooth stems which you can't see, and these clusters of blooms and buds at the top. They tend to come in with only a few blossoms open, but they're fun to watch develop and often look their best in about a week.

In addition, we also have this week:

snap dragon - pink and yellow
