Such Good Friends

Beautiful bouquet
Delightful flower bouquet made by friend Kathleen and delivered for the shop by friend Fran. I think it looks great with the tall green bottle and lights.

We're heading into the warm summer season but there are lots of wonderful breezes here in Meadows of Dan. The Blue Ridge Parkway is busy and Meadows of Dan is hopping. I saw some nice peaches up in town this morning and some other lovely produce as well. I heard through the grapevine that Nancy's Candy has some wonderful new flavors in truffles!
