A note a quote a gloat #2

Hey, its time for another installment of a note, a quote and a gloat. If you are new to this blog, I randomly will post little tidbits of flower information, a flower quote and notably a flower joke. aka a gloat.

This quote is said to originate from The Bishop of Geneva, Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622), yeah its been around for ages. This quote makes me think of my husband’s aunt. I was blubbering one day about life and she said “girl you gotta bloom where you are planted.” She cut me no slack…I so needed this little reminder at the time and since then. I have told myself hundreds of times….”self remember…bloom”


Did you know that 80% of all cut flowers sold in the USA are flown in from other countries. There is a movement slowly moving back to flowers grown here in the USA. Hence my little flower farm. Debra Prinzing has been a great advocate for the local slow flowers movement. Most of the local flowers that are being grown, are being done without the use of pesticides. This way making it safe for both the farmer and consumer.  Another plus to this, locally grown cut flowers last longer and look amazingly better. Seriously next time you are out and about and see a flower stand or at a farmers market. Pick up some locally grown cuts and see the difference for yourself.



What did the big flower say to the small flower?
