Going Up?

The Flower Lady's first class of the Spring Semester was last Tuesday. Now, there has been a 300% increase in enrollment. While enrollment in the FL's class is not normally recognized as a leading economic indicator, there are certainly some who would see this as a sign of economic recovery. Nothing in this blog should be construed as investment advice-- but perhaps you should call your broker.

"High Society"

For the first time in many years, the Flower Lady didn't have to work the retail front lines on Valentine's Day. Indeed, she became a customer herself, and purchased some flowers at the local produce market just after the big day, and found these very nice "High Society" roses at a very nice price. The FL judged they're probably the last decent roses left in the Western Hemisphere. Gentlemen, don't count on making such a find yourself. When it comes to Valentine's Day, the FL recommends tulips.

In other news, enough snow finally melted for us to rediscover our deck. I knew it was under there somewhere!

Coming Clean

So, folks, I told the FL about our little secret: she now knows about the blog. She had wondered why I was taking all those pictures. But she said she was glad to be my Flower Lady. She is so sweet! I told her she was now Flower Lady to the whole Cyber World!

She also told me to correct the entry on the tillandsia, that it was actually grown in Florida. But-- why remove a wisecrack about New Jersey? Besides, orchids are somewhat related, and there are orchid growers in New Jersey. Beauty can be found in the most unaccounted places!
