New Arrival!

Colorful and Collapsible Gift Vases

Right in time for all the late summer blooming annuals and perennials; these colorful vases add a little something extra to a gift bouquet of flowers.

These cool vases are plastic, therefore collapsible, yet when filled with water, they immediately stand straight and reflect their color, resembling colored glass.

(Shown here, are flowers cut from our garden behind the shop, which we are happy to cut fresh for folks, sold either by the stem or by bouquet.)
