Get to know me

I have been working with plants and fresh flowers for over 20 years. I started with petunias and at the time did not even know which were dead and which were alive! I have always had plants in my life. My mother had so many plants at home and I absolutely loved them! She bought my first macrame hangers for me. Then I had them in my house as always, along with a great variety of houseplants. Over the years between online courses and experience of learning the care from reading and I developed a great knowledge of the plants, inspiring me to learn what works and what doesn’t.

I love watching flowers bloom, and learning how to help them be as beautiful as possible! I’ve learned proper care and maintenance, pest control, proper soil and so much more over the past 20 years. I also did outdoor gardening for people, as well as landscaping. I’ve worked in several flower shops & started learning fresh flower arranging about 15 years ago. I grew to love this so much, that I had to make it my career!

My two beautiful daughters have added plants to their homes and are starting to share my love for plants. My youngest daughter is getting married this year, and I will be doing all the flowers and decorating. I’m very excited about this. I have a beautiful granddaughter who is simply amazing and small part of an amazing family.

People have always said ‘You spend a lot of time and energy on this, is it worth it for you’. The answer is YES. I don’t feel like I’m working when I do this, I feel very peaceful and satisfied whether I am planting, arranging flowers, or macrameing. I absolutely love what I do! I believe it shows in my work. I want it to be as special for my customers as it is for me.
