Here's the Scoop!
 October 24th 2013
First and foremost, we hope you'll be able to join us this Saturday, October 26th, for our pumpkin carving contest! We'll have a bouncy house for the kids, Salsa Senorita salsa and chips, Delmar Hill will be here with his big grill, and there will be prizes awarded in 4 age ranges. Even if you don't come to carve, come and have fun! 
For all you folks who know about poppies and how beautiful they are in the spring garden, we don't have to tell you more. For any of you who haven't tried them though, make this the year! Poppies planted this fall will grow through the winter and reward you with bright blooms beginning in the late winter through the spring. They are worth waiting for, and we have them in stock now. Read more about poppies and information on growing them HERE.
This week we were made aware of a new App offered for smart phones and tablets by Dr. Allan Armitage, well respected author, teacher and speaker. We're so excited to tell you about it! Simply go to your app store and type in armitage. The app is called Armitage's Greatest Perennials & Annuals, and we are certain you will want to get it. Look HERE for the post on our website about it. 
Last week we got in the first of the local persimmons from Petal's From The Past - they are delicious! We'll continue to carry them as long as they're available, so be sure to try a few next time you stop in. The mini-loaves of home made fresh tea breads are also here from Seven Winds Kitchen...Sweet Potato, Apple Dapple, Fresh Pear, and Blueberry Pound Cake are available now and make great hostess gifts!
Have a great weekend and we'll see you soon...
