Happy Thanksgiving Week !

Greetings all and trust that everyone is looking forward to celebrating with their families and friends this week. We are always very THANKFUL for the continued blessings and support that you, our wonderful followers and patrons, continue to give us throughout the year !

We have some exciting things coming up and here's a preview :

First, this Saturday at the Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete, we will continue to have great new offerings for your Fall and Winter gardens, with great color and hardiness. Our Herbs have been flying out of the booth fast and we will have more and more of them this weekend, along our first of the season offering of Lavender with those gorgeous Purple bloom spikes !

Yes, we still have gorgeous Bougainvillea, cold hardy Pansies, and don't forget, we have Aunt Mary's handmade Cedar Birdhouses that are being snapped up quickly as they make unique Holiday gifts!

Sundays, we are continuing to support the small Sunday Morning Market in Tarpon Springs and we have great news--they are moving us back to our prior great location on the Corner of Alt 19 and Tarpon Ave. This will get the market back more on the radar for surrounding traffic and there is plenty of free parking all over. This move will hopefully happen Sunday, Dec. 4th. This coming Sunday, Nov. 27th, we will still be located by the Historic Railroad station, and they are having a big Arts and Craft Show on Tarpon Avenue right by us, so you can check both of us out !

Next big news: People are begging us to have our annual Fall plant sale at our house, so we are going to do it the weekend after this. The dates and time are:
Friday, Dec. 2nd Noon until 5pm
Saturday Dec. 3rd 9am-5pm

We will have flyers in our booth to hand out with address and date info so pick one up. The sale will be held at: 1331 39th avenue north, St. Pete (corner of 14th street and 39th ave).
We will have some great stuff available at 20-50% off savings! We will be staffing both the markets and the home plant sale so hopefully you can make one or both of the events.

Last big news (at least for now)--We are excited to be a part of the Florida Botanical Garden Plant and Gift show on Sunday, Dec. 11th. The show is 10am-4pm and vendors will be located throughout the gardens. The show is free entrance and free parking.

Also, we encourage you to check out their Holiday Light Show in the gardens. It is a modest $2 offering for adults (kids 12 and under are free) and goes from 5:30-9:30 every night from Nov. 25th through Jan. 1st. It's a great family outing to walk around the gardens that will be lit amazingly ! For info on both events, check out their website at: www.flbg.org
