You think I just Monkey around don’t you? Your not so thoughtful then are you? I have purpose. I keep wine fresher than the Fresh Prince. I know I know, you say you never leave a bottle of wine unfinished… well some people do, and I”m on this planet to be of some help to them. Look at me, I”m a handsome resin headed Monkey, and I have a stout little cork body, my body is the perfect shape, wait, I know what you’re thinking, and well, I’m not that type of Monkey, I bring up my perfect body because it’s absolutely perfect for corking up wine bottles, not because it’s some kind of sexy monkey body. Sexy Monkey Body? You are out of line. I have friends that understand me, Horse, Tiger, and Silly Snake. We are a posse of wine stoppers and we live at Sprout Home.
We are very happy to have our Fraser Firs and Balsams back. We have been getting these two types of trees from the same two farms for the last 8 years. The Fraser’s come in from North Carolina, and the Balsams come from Nova Scotia. Quality, and many many sizes. 4′ up to 14′. We also have very rugged Xmas tree stands, even though we always order more each year, those stands to fly out the door. Lot’s of freaked out December 20Th Xmas stand shoppers in the past. If your not down the the trees that are no longer alive, you can start a nice tradition around a Norfolk Pine. Norfolk’s are amazing potted indoor evergreens, very Charlie Brown Christmas type trees. We have several little table top guys, and then they jump to around 2.5′ and we were lucky to nab a nice 9 footer. Really great indoor plants. They like bright light, and thrive with some help with moisture, an occasional misting will do the trick. Go Season of Giving!
The other day, a bale of vibrant red maple branches engulfted the entire new floral store. It was my doing–I was greedy when I saw that shade and had to buy as much as possible. Red branches everywhere. Red leaves covering the entire floor. There wasn’t enough room for all the branches so Shirley and I had to duck under, dodge around, and hop across to manage. We even squeezed past. A forest turned inside out in our store, and no one would have guessed it down the street. Our little playground.
Enjoy these vibrant fall wedding centerpieces!
And please visit Sprout Floral!
We’ve got some awesome new indoor plants. Below are my top picks:
Ficus creeping fig – good for terrarium or hanging planter
Philodendron silver – silver sparkle leaves
Asparagus Plumosa Fern – like a little delicate evergreen tree – awesome!
Philodendron Micans – a really pretty black leaf variety
Lady Slipper Orchids: The easiest orchids around in my opinion. Good for med light.
Frosty fern – the tips look like they have snow on them
Purple Waffle – it is how it sounds
English baby tears – great for terrariums and a nice chartreuse green color
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! We will be closed on Thursday, November 25th. Here’s to being thankful to then and now…
