Flowers for Ann with Romantic Antike garden roses, California anemones, Japanese Sweet Pea and White Majolika spray roses.
The last of the vintage ribbon is slowly unraveling toward its end. I use it for arrangements to dear old customers who will understand how special it is.
This winter is harsh, but we try to stay warm in the shop in spite of the lack of insulation and all the old single pane glass in the front . The power went off on Tuesday for five hours. I could see my breath and I prayed that NStar could fix the problem before I had to leave the rabbits in the cold for the night.
I burned candles. Eight of them. I rigged up a flower pot heater: one terra cotta pot upside down on another one with a tea light burning inside: in an hour I had a hand warmer. To make a real difference, I needed much bigger pots and more candles: still, it was a welcome warmth for my fingers.
The power went on at 2:00 and I cranked the heat and said prayers of gratitude. Rabbits were fine.
Winter: 4 degrees this morning. Harsh. Stay warm All
