Did some impulse buying on the flower truck today, I just had to have this sunny calla lily.
I love everything about calla plants. The flowers are pretty rad, obviously, but I also love the the curves and mass of the whole thing. AND THOSE LEAVES! The ripply fan shape! The dots! I cannot wait for the callas to grow in my garden. Summer brides, get ready- you are probably gonna carry some of these leaves down the aisle with you.
Callas are a popular wedding flower, but for me they bring back travel memories.
Spence and I lived in Pacific Grove, California, for a year back in 2009, and the callas there were bananas. B-a-n-a-n-a-s. Sorry, Ontario brides! Our primo $9 per stem bridal flower is Northern California’s garden weed. After a thunderstorm, I could walk around my block and pick myself a $100 bridal bouquet from callas that had blown onto the sidewalk. (On the plus side…. yay, healthcare?)
These are amaryllis growing out of the sidewalk down the block from us, but same idea. Sorry, 2009 me really wasn’t thinking ahead…
But I’m getting ridiculously off topic, I actually wanted to tell you all about Mother’s Day!
Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 11! Don’t forget your mom, or the important mother-figures in your life.
I am excited to announce that we will be running TWO Mother’s Day pop up shops this year.
Lakeshore School has graciously rented us space from 9:00 to 5:00 on Saturday May 10 and Sunday May 11.
They’re at 2312 Princess St. between the CAA and the RONA.
We will also have a table at the Mother’s Day Brunch market at the Queen’s University Club on Sunday May 11 from 10:00-2:00.
We are so grateful to Nina and her team for the invitation to this lovely event- we’ll pass along more details as they become available.
Come out for some treats, pick up your order, or shop from our selection of bouquets and plants. At our Lakeshore shop, we can even make you up a custom bunch on the spot :)
Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be adding more products to the shop, running a social media contest to win a hand-tied bouquet, and playing show and tell when our new shipment of planters and vases arrives May 1st.
We’re already taking orders, so give us a call, send us a message, or order online to ensure you’re the golden child for the rest of the year.
You’re never too old to be a good kid.
Happy Thursday, all!
PS. Mr. Bingley and his new favourite (disgusting) toy, THE POM POM, send their warmest wishes. Now where’s the kibble?
