Local flowers

California dreaming

If you are on Instagram or Facebook you may have noticed a surge in the hashtags #locallygrown #americanflowers or #slowflowers. Buying local flowers not only benefits our environment but our local economy. I feel so spoiled to live in the bay area where I get to buy directly from local growers.  Here are a few flowers we get directly from our lovely flower farmers.
