Planting Seeds

Marina and I have been hard at work gearing up for a busy Spring. While our growers spent much of their winter pouring over seed catalogs and planting seeds, Marina and I were doing our own Spring preparation. First thing’s first: we have a BLOG! We've been talking about creating a blog for a while now, but we've finally got it up. We're hoping to fill the blog with stories, photos and other news about our work, our growers and our clients. We also wanted to share design ideas with you, connect you with the Buy Local campaign in Baltimore and get your ideas, comments and feedback. Marina and I will both be posting so make sure to check back often.

In addition to the blog, we also have a new website (and a new logo!). We had a lot of help on this project. Thanks to everyone that gave feedback on our logo options, thanks to Young and Eric for working with us until the logo was exactly right and special thanks to Eric for designing and creating the new website.

So now folks have lots of places to see our work online. However, seeing the real thing is even better. Spring in Balitmore is festival time. Local Color Flowers will be at Flowermart in Mt Vernon on May 1 and 2 from 11am-8pm. We’ll be located in the same spot we had last year on the east side of Charles just north of the monument. This year, in addition to having arrangements on display, we’ll have arrangements for sale on both Friday and Saturday . We’ll also be taking orders for Mother’s Day arrangements (which is May 10th this year. Don’t forget!) Come by and say hi! We’ll also be at Cylburn’s Market Day on May 9 from 8am-2pm. We will have Mother’s Day arrangements for sale and for those of you who ordered in advance, you’ll have the option of picking up your arrangements that day.

As you can see, we're working hard to share our work with you in alot of different ways. (you can find us on Facebook too!) I hope you'll bookmark this blog and keep checking back. We’re only getting started so stay tuned.
