August 2013 Thank you!


I just love our customers.  We get to laugh, we sometimes cry, and together we get to enjoy many of the gifts this life has given us.

I am amazed at the sheer joy, compassion and goodness I find in our clients. Flowers must really bring out not only the best in people, but also the best people!

Veronica…… you a very special and classy woman. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed working with you and your wedding party! Thank you for sharing your photos…. like you, they are absolutely stunning! (Please visit

Alisha and Ben, thank you for spending your first anniversary with us! I already knew you both in my heart…. it was so wonderful to finally meet you in person! God Bless your friend Wayne (from Australia!)  for driving on the wrong side of the road, in thee only monsoon & torrential downpour of 2012, while hauling 150 (4 foot!)  sunflowers, buckets of amaranthus, some misc flowers, all amazingly crammed into a Nissan, to Traverse City! Your wedding photos are just so gorgeous!  You all hold a very special place in my heart. You are one of my most favorite stories! I love you all!

Dave and Janis from Washington! Finally we get to meet! We have been emailing back and forth forever! What a wonderful surprise! Thank you for sending your beautiful son and daughter-in-law and that tiny, precious grand baby to us! Oh, we are going to have fun this summer!

To the wonderful parents of an amazing 4 year old for fostering a swallowtail caterpillar (and many others, too!) and for showing your son the wonders of nature! I hope the caterpillar enjoys the smorgasbord of plants and herbs you chose for him!

To Kathy and Jess, for giving me goose bumps, for making me laugh and cry, for sharing your precious grandbaby and nephew with me, and for all your kind words. I will never tire of hearing “enchanted” and “magical”. That is my goal, and I thank you for making me realize I am already living in an enchanted and magical place that I can share.  You are very special.

To The Holden’s of Sunset Bed and Breakfast in Pinckney. Oh, what amazing people! If you are looking for a wedding venue, you really need to check this place out. . (My dreamland times at least 500!) Karen and her daughter are the kind of people you love instantly and feel you have known forever. Thank you for spreading the word about our farm and for visiting with us!

To Brittany, for bragging about us! I really appreciate that. You are a love! We have had so many people out who saw your flowers and heard about us from you! You are a darling and greatly appreciated!

To Shayla for sharing your beautiful bottled beer photos. Wow, what an art you and your new husband share! I hope the hops (and flowers) worked wonderfully for you and you are enjoying your honeymoon! I can’t wait to meet your mom!

To my beautiful new friend from Austria (who I am so embarrassed to say I cannot remember your name!) I know your voice and your laughter and your wonderful joy that you give so freely! I hope the wedding was perfect!

Lance, your love for your mom brings me so much joy! I look forward to seeing you again this year. You are a dear young man. We will get that ammi growing in your mom’s gardens yet!

Tonylee and Christopher….. I just can’t express how much I enjoyed working with you! Your love of flowers, life, each other. I hope you both got a well deserved break from work! I am excited to watch your new production, “Low Winter Sun” starting 8/11 (on AMC, 10 o’clock, right after Breaking Bad, filmed in Detroit!) I am excited! (I hope I have all this right)

Ruth, thank you for your patience with the lisianthus! I am so happy it bloomed for your wedding! And thank you for sharing your gorgeous bouquet photos with us! I look forward to seeing your wedding photos!

To all who have supported our farm and flower cart. All who have said kind words when the work gets to be a little too much. Because of you, I am blessed. And I thank you so very much!

Oh, so many good people, I am sure I am forgetting to thank someone!
