Flowers From Hawaii

Whew!  We sure were busy last week for all the Moms.  It seemed as soon as I collapsed on my bed, Lynn was waking me up to go back to the shop.  All week, I was of course, the "meeter greeter" so whenever I heard her say "Wiiillllooow...customers"  I was on it.  🙂   Except, there were just so many my goodness; at the end of the night I had noodle legs from all the ups & downs.  But I just love everyone.  xo

Alien Plant Or Animal?

The commotion our Hawaii flowers stirred up was really wild.  We get them direct from the farms there and we had some  things I know never before seen in any flower shop (ha-but isn't that the norm with us?).   We had waxy, green not red anthuriums, forest leaves as big as my bed, seriously purple orchids, and tons more.  We took pictures of us with the most;  the absolutely most, wildest thing.  Huge, fuzzy (yes furry fuzzy) fiddle heads from giant tree ferns that Lynn says can stand as tall as our building!  Can you even imagine-wow-a house fern for shade instead of a maple tree.  That is  beyond cool.

After much sniffing and investigation, I finally determined they were not a member of the animal kingdom and decided they were not going to take off out the door for chase, or attack us!  So we had fun  laughing and decided to put our picture on Facebook.

You just have to go like it right now so everyone sees them, you won't believe it!

A Fiddle Head-A What?

 O.K. so, what is a fiddle head?  As I understood; it is a baby fern before it opens.  All ferns have them just not THIS big.   Lynn and I laughed because they were as thick as her arm and my leg.  And, they are covered in the softest fur; kinda feeling like that soft lint from our clothes dryer.  I could hardly believe it was not a new ground bunny of some far off land.  Now I get it about saving rain forests; if things like that are there they def need protecting.

We have fun at the shop every day, come by and hang out with us; you will see the coolest things we find and join in with all the fun we have.   You learn a lot of amazing stuff too.  🙂

Love, love Willow  xxoo

Wow right?
