Valentine's Day: flowers at the table.

To the delight of many restaurants in Boston, Valentine's Day falls on Saturday this year.  Instead of deliveirng flowers to dowtown businesses during the work day, we send them to restaurants.

This is romantic.  This is nailing it.

Our display will be overflowing with sweet pea from Japan, jasmine from California, local anemones, ranunculus from France and Japan, sunflowers, garden roses, tulips, lisianthus from Japan and we'll have some red roses too.

Sweet cash and carry ball jars will be for sale as well as wrapped bouquets to go, all made carefully and lovingly by us, for you!


Does your Valentine prefer yellow or purple or orange?  We'll have flowers in every palette. Call or come in and place your order for pick up or delivery.

Blogger friends, roses and Valentine's Day

One of the unforeseen benefits of starting a blog has been the surprise of friendships with 

men and women around the world. I've met four of them in person.



One such friend lives near Boston.  If you aren't familiar with Country Weekend, check it 

out.  Jen travels lovingly, reads voraciously, paints, writes and shares all of it with us.



She gifted me with a piece from a painting series she's been working on: a rose against a 

blue background. 



Last week I saw a David Austin rose called Carey that could have been the model for Jen's 

painting.


It's a big, blowzy cupped roses that I'd never seen before and it's on my order list for Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day is on Saturday this year.  February 14th. 

Thank you Jen - who would have imagined I'd find a rose almost as lovely as yours!

Amaryllis plant Give-Away





We're starting the new year off with a plant give-away.  We have eight amaryllis plants in a few colors that have at least one unopened stalk - some with flowers, some without.

To snag one of these beauties (bulbs from South Africa) just give the shop a call (617 492 0080) and give us your name and phone number and we'll hold one for you. Or email with the same info.

These bulbs can be nurtured and saved until next year when they'll bloom again.
