Fall?

Can it be? Is fall almost upon us? Then again, we've got another six weeks or so of temperatures over the century mark. But it's coming, we promise! How do we know? Because our growers are starting to send seasonal flowers and boy, are they gorgeous! Big happy sunflowers, richly colored daisy poms, spectacular roses like Circus (golden yellow with fiery tips), Cherry Brandy (a luscious corally-orange) and more.
Ahhhh. . . autumn. Even the word evokes happy memories. . . bonfires and hayrides and thick, rich sweaters. Okay, maybe not in Metro Phoenix, but with autumn comes one of the best holidays of the year: Halloween!

According to the National Retail Federation, Halloween is now the second-best consumer holiday (behind Christmas, of course). There's costumes and candy and parties and decor. And the decor--what fun! Whether you're the laid back type who throws a few pumpkins on the porch, or you've built an entire haunted house in your garage. . . or fall somewhere in between. . . you have to stop by any one of our five flower shops, and soon! Our designers have combined forces to create some of the most awesome displays at every store. Take a look, ask questions, feel free to use their ideas or come up with some of your own!


Because fall is right around the corner...we promise.
