A Flowery Suprise

Written by

Since I have a walk in cooler, my designer friends usually have their wholesale orders shipped here.
I often end up unpacking the orders (I can’t handle flowers being out of water, it’s like seeing a baby without socks in the winter!) and get to drool over every beautiful bloom.
Today unexpectedly our UPS guy showed up with a huge box from Peter Kort Roses (my favorite rose grower!). Evidently there had been a mix up on their end and a friends order was shipped out 2 weeks early. Oops!
Ever generous, they gifted her the all of the flowers. And since her house is tiny and she is awesome… I get to keep half!  Woohoo, way to make a girls day!

Roses : Cool Water, Avalanche, Ocean Song, Moon Struck and the super fragrant garden variety  Helga Piaget

    When you get rolling with events you'll want these guys in your corner for sure! I love that their flowers are grown sustainably. (No creepy white powder on the leaves or smells of nasty chemicals)
    Garden Valley is pretty fantastic too! I’ve never ordered direct, only grabbed leftovers at the wholesaler.Thanks for the reminder.

    Wow! Lucky duck. I just spent 30 minutes looking through their catalog and am really digging the garden roses we can't get here in New York.

    I'm also a total sucker for Garden Valley Ranch roses. Seriously, I could eat them with a spoon.
