What's Growing on November 2011

If you missed our email newsletter this month here it is ~ 

Flower of the Month ~ Chrysanthemum

One of our most requested flowers is the Daisy.  Just about daily someone will say, "She Loves Daisies!".  Did you know Daisies are part of the Chrysanthemum family?  There are hundreds of type of Chrysanthemums.  All of the different types can be found here.  
A little history:
Chrysanthemums can trace their history all the way back to 15th century (BC) in China.  It started as a flowering herb, but now it's so much more.  The Chrysanthemum even became the "official seal" of the emperor of Japan in the 8th century.  The original color was golden; now it has so many different shades, shapes, and variations.

Arrangement of the Month
Our Arrangement of the Month this month is named, "Thankful for You".  It was, once again, named by our Facebook friends.  
 It features Carnations, button mums, daisies, alstroemeria, cat tails, and fall leaves.  It is arranged in a wicker cornucopia.  The perfect fall gift! 
You can order it herefor just $36.99.
