"The uBloom Website does automatically log you out after about 30-40 if you were watching a couple of videos it may be necessary for you to log back in after that period of time... We are working on that with our NEW uBloom 3.0 coming later this fall... So if this happens again... just pop up to the logout... and click on it... And then you will be able to log back in and enjoy the videos.. this is a security precaution... but it's been modified in the new update we have coming... Sorry for the inconvenience... hope this helps! J"

"Couple Secrets... wet your hands when working with them... that will help prevent bruising them with your fingers.. Also use Chrysal Professional Glory... coat them completely front and back...allow to dry and coat again... Maybe you could GLUE them into the hand tied bouquet... right before the ceremony... "

"I also love the NEW Stemmed Gardenias... from KB Farms... Available from your local Wholesale florist... they come on the stem... and sometimes with many buds... then you can place them into the Foam... or into a hand tied bouquet... all the buds open too! They are truly one of my favorite flowers!"

Loved this Selection of Ribbon from RELIANT RIBBON CORPORATION at the Dallas Market this June… they are a perfect selection to communicate the “Fragrant Garden Concept”… using color, texture and pattern…

She Needs Flowers… Doesn’t EVERYONE?

She Needs Flowers Calendar from 1963


This week I was as Sieck Wright Floral Products in New Jersey… and they had the most spectacular display of OLD Flower Calendars in their office…

That's the LOOK... "Flowers Please!" Green Gloves and All!

I grabbed this picture… of this Calendar from 1963…  I love the Vintage image and those amazing Green Gloves… Doesn’t her LOOK say just that… “FLOWERS PLEASE!!!”

The Days of LOCAL Flowers... Jersey Flowers for Jersey Florists

I also liked the tag line at the bottom of the Calendar… that was back in the day when Wright’s Roses were growing Local Roses… for distribution to their clients in New Jersey!   FUN Flower History!

Flowers for My Friends!

It was my Friends Stephanie and Sean’s Anniversary… and we were invited to dinner! I’ve really got into the habit of Bringing Flowers! It wasn’t easy at first… in Europe it’s “easier” because there are vendors on every corner…So I have to plan… and that was the most difficult part! Training ME to better prepared… and Making Flowers the PRIORITY!

Amazing Colors... The Detail!

That Being said… I got some amazing Dahlias at the Farmer’s Market… The Dahlia Growers are winding up their season… and then I had these TWO Amazing Hydrangea in my garden… that were PINK all summer… and as our nights have gotten cooler… they turned a Fantastic Taupe Color… my Seedum was also FIRING up…. so I added that too…  It turned out Beautiful… and was a Fabulous way to say “CONGRATULATIONS” to my Friends…  “Flowers Like Friends Take TIME!” (Georgia O’keefe)

A RICH Autumn Color Palette for Sean and Steph!
