Learn. Make. Sell. All about clutches.

Flowers for you ladies … FREE and virtual!

I just cut 5 vases worth of rhododendrons, peonies, and lilac.  My neighbors got a vase each and I have 3 in my front entryway and kitchen and dining rooms.

If you guys were my neighbors … I’d run a vase over to you, too!  Just leave the vase on the front porch when they’re done!  🙂

Some things are well worth the wait, and flowers are one of them!  I know you all work very hard every day.  Many, many of you have 2 jobs:  your corporate or office  job (nursing, teaching, too!), and then your crafty side business(es).  I don’t know how you do it!  And you may be raising kids, too, just like me.  And I find that gardening has really been beneficial for my mental health!  It brings me such joy to get dirt under my nails and reap the bounty of beautiful flowers that I can cut and give to others.  It gets me out there in the fresh air and sun and takes my mind off everything else.

Waiting for them to bloom is not fun … quite anti-climatic for a while and then BOOM! (or BLOOM, rather) I get a bunch of gorgeous and fragrant flowers that all the neighbors appreciate.  What once was a strip of hard compacted soil, has yielded a profusion of color and fragrance!  All from my own two hands!

I wish you all could enjoy these.  So for my NJ customers who live near me, feel free to convo me through one of your past orders to come by and I’ll clip some peonies for you!  I have these beautiful gecko glasses that I bought in NYC Central Park 8 years ago from a street artist that I can put them in for you.  The gecko glasses are made from recycled Heineken beer bottles.  I can put 3 peonies in one.  It’s all free of charge so convo me and stop on by!  I’m close to Rt. 10, 280, 287, 24 …  Would love to meet you and send you on your way with some beautiful peonies.  (Kathleen, the grower that I bought these from charges $20 for 3 cut stems!  They’re worth it though …)

Take a look!

I should have blooms for another 2 weeks or so.  Then my Asiatic lilies will begin to show.  I’ll be sure to post pics of those.

So thanks for your continued and repeat business.  I love looking at the order list and seeing very familiar names come up!  🙂  Best feeling in the world!

If you’re near me, convo me and trek over for some peonies as my thanks for your business.  If you’re not near me, I hope these virtual arrangements will do!

Enjoy your holiday weekend.  Gotta run outside on this bright and sunny Saturday to play with the kids.  🙂

  2. I love your flowers. Long trip from Texas to get your free flowers though. We cannot grow peonies or real lilacs here in Texas. I sure do miss them. In Ohio, my mother had huge bushes of these flowers.

    And I am sitting here in 97 degree heat already. That is why they won’t grow here. So I will just enjoy your photos and imagine the aroma from long ago. Jan

    • Sorry I can’t help you out Jan! You guys get to grow BEAUTIFUL flowers in TX with your long growing season though! When I lived in OKC, Oklahoma, the nurseries at Lowes had the BEST selection!
