If you stopped in recently, you may have come upon a pallet of boxes being eagerly opened by staff at the front counter, amid exclamations of “OOOH, Look at THIS one!” After recycling piles of packing materials, the end result is a delightful array of new mugs unwrapped and stocked throughout the tea bar for your shopping and gift-giving pleasure. Some are specifically designed with a slot to hold a tea bag, others individually shaped and glazed for the art and pottery lover, and still more with whimsical words to start your day with a smile. Fill them with a sample of your favorite bulk tea, a bundle of truffles, or ask one of our florists to use one in a custom bouquet.
Spring is not only in the air these days, it’s also on the calendar. We have once again passed into the realm of shorter nights and longer days and I guess the weather also got the memo.
Buds are bursting open and traditional favorite spring bloomers are already in flower or just about to be. Forsythia, Hellebore, Pieris, and Bleeding Hearts are showing color and Janet brought in a few Flowering Quince varieties that should be in bloom in just a few more minutes.
The nice weather also brings questions about our annual Plants by the Flat Sale. The details are just getting finished up and I’ll send along that information in about a week. Until then…
Sometimes we order things in the shop without paying very close attention to the dimensional details. This leads to some wacky surprises as we unwrap mysterious packages. This week’s happy accident is a rather larger than expected metal arrow. Our witty employees have come up with several ways this could be displayed (or wielded). You may decide if it is something you could use, perhaps to give Cupid some help, guide teenagers to the laundry room, or encourage a new graduate to follow his or her dreams.
