Monday’s Leap Day marked the end of February and brought to a close our special blog “blizzard.” Whew, what a month! I hope you found our flurry of growing-related posts useful and informative.
*If you haven’t already voted for the Better Homes and Gardens’ Blogger Awards today, I’d love to have your vote.*
The goal of the February blog blizzard was to load you up with lots of information and tips to help you grow a bountiful, beautiful garden this season. Readers asked a ton of follow-up questions and we’re setting aside some special time this week to go back through and answer many of your queries as possible. The level of commenting far exceeded our expectations and we quickly fell behind on responding. You guys are amazing and please, stay tuned for answers!
We will continue to post flower-related information and inspiration in this space, but know the pace will definitely slow down a bit, since our growing season is beginning to ramp up. There are still a ton of ideas for future posts in the hopper and I can’t wait to share them with you.
For example, tomorrow I’ll be posting a review and giveaway of Ariella Chezar’s new book, The vancouver flower shop, so be sure to check back on that. In the coming weeks, I also plan to revamp the Flower Focus series, highlighting some tools of the trade, plus dive into some wedding floral-related topics. There will be lots of pretty posts to come, I promise!
Over the weekend, the Floret team and I locked ourselves in my dining room to put our heads together for some serious strategizing, plotting and power planning. During the three long days, we consumed massive quantities of coffee and chocolate while we dreamed and schemed ideas for the future of Floret. Our little mind hive was littered with post-it notes, notebooks, planners, books, maps, calendars (all the way into 2018!) and toys as baby Felix crawled (and even toddled!) around at our feet.
It was an exciting, exhilarating and exhausting process which left our minds feeling like applesauce. We’ve got so many wonderful things in store for the future of this little flower company and I can’t wait to share more about them soon. Thanks so much for your thoughtful feedback, enthuastic support (and votes).
