Botanical Beauties & Beasties Family Resemblance campaign will go LIVE, IN PERSON, TODAY at Whole Foods Market in Cranston RI (Garden City Store.) We are excited to see people’s reactions when they understand the connections of the family of flowers to The Botanical Beauties!
We have created some special Mothers Days Cards, for this event. If you are still thinking hmmm … what to do for mom, how about a beautiful Whole Foods plant or arrangement of flowers with a beautiful Botanical Beauties Card to top it off! Smiles all around.
Come on by, say Hi and browse all the beauty with us from 2-6 today (Tuesday May 8th) and or Saturday May 12 10-2. Hope to see you there! Location: 151 Sockanosset Cross Road Cranston, Rhode Island 02920 Learn about Whole Foods Floral: click here.
PS: We are also bringing out graduation cards for those special folks too!
It is warm again up here. Many spring flowers are glorious in their blooming, showing off all the colors and shapes they can. Each Season seems like a new beginning – a chance to reinvent a part of yourself. You may do it with Fashion and the Public Persona you wear. Maybe your “hobby” changed? Your sports? Your arts? Your attitude? Your life can be what you choose (not easy but true.) Each season, and each birthday, feels like a new chance.

The obvious new beginnings are babies! We know that many new “wee ones” appear in the spring. Nature has naturally made it a good time for the young. The temps are better, food is more plentiful, and Moms and Dads come out of hibernation. The Botanical Beauties and Beasties are no exception. Meet our new baby! Speaking of family resemblance…. who do think her family is?
Orchids make me happy...Yesterday I bought myself a gift. A new white Orchid. To preserve it I photographed it and "Arted" it.
Flowers make me happy. They are calming, beautiful, often exquisite and an amazement to me in their individuality. Nature is indeed a pure art form. The Botanical Beauties (and Beasties) take their cue from flowers for the most part. Take a detail and expand. The message is every detail can matter, and every person matters. We all need to do our part – whatever that may be.
Can you see the family resemblance of the Love Birds to the Orchids? We are going to start a series today, showing off the family resemblance’s. This event will be collimated in a mini display at Whole Foods (Cranston R.I) at the end of April or the beginning of May (date still TBD.) So let the fun begin with today!
Hold on and grip your chair—Botanical Beauties and Beasties has exciting news! In honor of National Wildlife Week, The Key West Girls are coming to town! They will be arriving on Whimsy Wednesday so be sure to check in and meet them. Here’s a sneak peek. Ahhhyeah… Aww… So Pretty! Thanks to NWF for declaring it National Wildlife Week. Yahoo!
It’s gonna be a fun week. Spring is trying to pop out, new Beauties (or maybe Beasties) come to visit- maybe stay, as always some eco knowledge and a few fun facts. The creatures are bursting with excitement.
The Love Birds just found out about an Orchid Show - Orchid Mania 2011: Purple Reign, it’s in Cleveland (a long way for them to travel)but they are excited anyways. When your head is an Orchid this is big news! http://bit.ly/hsTrB9
They thought you might like to know a tad more about Orchids. First the flower definition, then the Botanicals definition.
“Throat – the inner portion of a tubular orchid lip, often quite colorful. Lip – the part of the flower that is almost completely divided from the rest of the flower, however, it is connected by the column. The lip is specialized to aid in pollination.” Definitions and image from: http://bit.ly/hEjuq2
Throat – the long portion in a tubular shape, connected to the beak, often quite colorful. Lip – the part of the Botanical Beauties that is on the outside of the beak or mouth. The lip is specialized to form words.
(It’s Whimsy Wednesday, and so an illustration of some type appears today.)
