I remember as a child having a section of my dining room filled with plants that I would buy for $1 at the local grocery store with my allowance.  I would get so excited each week when I bought a new plant to add to my collection.  My favorite plant back then was the purple passion, which I would make cuttings from and give plants to anyone who would take one!  I helped plant and nurture my grandmother's rock garden every summer with beautiful colored annuals.  I have always had a passion for flowers and gardening, as well as crafty things.  This job is a perfect fit for my passion for creativity and it does not feel like work when I am here.  The employees here have taught me so much with flower design and arranging.  The creativity flows freely and I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from such wonderful experienced designers in the industry. 

My favorite flower—

My favorite flower would be any flower colored purple!  I love the color purple.  It is regal and beautiful!
