One of my wonderful customers brought me a gift African violet yesterday planted in one of my own flower pots! Apparently Rick propagates & grows these violets off of his mother’s original plants after she passed away. While her plants are now well over fifty years old, the violet’s beauty continues to be shared & spread through Rick’s ever-“growing” tribute. A beautiful combo… and a beautiful gesture. Thank you so much Rick & Nancy! I love it!!!

Spending the day at home setting up, stocking shelves and climbing the stairs more times than I can count!!! But I am enjoying the good weather and the blue skies streaming in through a top shelf of mugs!!! Just getting everything ready for this weekend’s HOLIDAY HOME SHOW!!!
