Local Blooms

We’re all well-versed in the benefits of local, that buzzword which prompts us to shop with our neighbors who own small businesses.

There are scads of local flower farmers in this part of our state, and floral designers are flocking to their fresh cuts. Let us introduce you to a few of our favorites.
