Mindfulness – a timely concept for December. Always a challenge, the speed and density of events in this season of preparation and celebration makes it especially daunting. We love decorating and bringing beauty into clients homes and work-spaces, yet it seems there is never enough time for all we would like to accomplish. Our most compressed season of frantic activity comes just as the gurus of business tell us we should be analyzing this year’s progress and contemplating the year ahead.
How do we do the work with excellence, properly thank our clients who have supported us with their business this year, and plan to serve in 2015 all at the same time? Let me begin by saying that I am grateful every day for the caring people who I get to work with. So many unique skill sets and personalities blend together to design, order, prepare, install and care for the plants, flowers, event settings and decor that we provide. I say with confidence that every staff member understands the unique proposition of small business – an environment where every contribution counts and the results are visible to peers and customers alike. We do not always succeed with our intention of total client joy, but we are always engaged in a process of continual improvement and growth with the goal of pleasing you.
We offer our heartfelt thanks for the opportunity to engage with you, learn more about you, and to try to be your first choice for all things horticultural. May your Hanukkah be happy, your Christmas merry and your New Year be filled with promise and good health.

Recently I had the opportunity to visit my sister and her family in Okinawa, and Kyoto Japan for two weeks. It was an amazing experience! We visited many shrines, temples and gardens. Kyoto is known as a garden lovers’ paradise. “It is the best place to immerse yourself in the wonders of the Japanese garden” according to our travel book. One thing that really struck me is the detail and decoration put into everything, from the roof tile to the drainage ditches.
Everything was its own piece of artwork. I am very excited to use elements of the Japanese garden in my landscaping at home and for clients who also love the Japanese style. -Alexa LeBaron
