    I love this episode. We have a great time shooting all of our California Grown farms and both trips have ended with Mel Resendiz and his incredible Protea farm. He always gives us a great wrap party and send off.

    What a joy it must be to be able to work with some wonderful flowers and products that were available. Would love to be set free in a wholesale warehouse and be told to use whatever you want. Probably would take me half a day just to pick stuff I loved out and then to make arrangements the next day.Wow that must have been a great experience. Look forward to meeting you one day at a show somewhere. Hope you get to come to the Portland, Oregon area. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

      You have it exactly right Helen- that is exactly what I did do here at Brannan Street- I got there- and set up my containers- day one… day 2- I picked out all the wonderful things that I loved- and grouped them into sets for each container… then day 3 was the event- and I made them! It’s fun to get turned loose in a Wholesale Florist- and Brannan Street was THE BEST of the BEST- I love Roy- Flemming and of course Barbara- and this was one of the BEST days of my Life… Thank you!
      I hope that after all this pandemic is behind us- I do get to come to Portland again… it’s a wonderful city- and we love visiting- I Hope that we can meet one day too- SOON Hopefully!
