Bok Tower Plant Show Recap & Upcoming Events

This past Saturday, we set up at the lovely Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, FL and had a terrific sale! Crowd estimates were 15 thousand plus? Nice customers, great music and being surrounded by some of our favorite vendor friends, plus fabulous weather made for a wonderful day to be outside. People come to this event from all over Florida to enjoy the free admission to the gardens, enjoy the Boktoberfest music and beer and food, and be able to get plants from some of the best Plant vendors around the state. We can't wait to go back next year!

Here is our schedule for the upcoming week:

Sun. Oct 24th Tarpon Springs Sunday Morning Market, 9am-2pm
This is the first day of the new Fall season for the T. Springs Market and we are looking forward to returning to this lovely town. We always have a great time, with good customer turnout and sharing market day with our many vendor friends who have great offerings of produce, ready to go food, crafts and much more. Many of our customers are locals, as well as ones who travel up to the area to enjoy the market and the Sponge Docks. The market is located at the corner of Tarpon Ave. and Alt 19 (Pinellas Ave) and there is ample parking close by.

We got great news this week when we heard from our new friend Matt, of "Blooming Daily", who is putting out a calendar with 12 of his most special flower pics and the December pic is going to be of the lovely Red Florida Dogwood (red flowering Mussaenda), that we have blooming in our back yard! His calendars can be ordered from his site at www.bloomingdaily.com....check it out!

We are having another week of glorious Fall weather with lower humidity and plenty of sunshine (we could use some rain tho !)....this is a great time to get out in the garden and spruce things up, plus get new plants established so happy gardening !
