We’ve just unpacked the new Summer Willow Tree pieces and you are sure to love them as much as we do. I’ll share more next time, but for now, here are two of the new introductions with commentary by the artist – Susan Lordi.
~ You’re simply a joy in my life
“I like to walk in the tangles of my garden and discover little jewels that pop up or volunteer through the weeds. Usually not planned or cultivated, these colorful surprises never fail to make me smile. Like a spur-of-the-moment visit from a good friend who makes me laugh, these spontaneous happenings, however simple, can bring so much joy.”
~ a time to reflect, a time to soar
“The gesture of the figure and the bird communicates forward movement… being uplifted, moving onward; a release of hopes, dreams and spirit; of new beginnings and of endings; in celebration of a life… or in anticipation of a life together.
“This piece could be a way to express best wishes to someone who is taking a new path in life; on a road to recovery from illness or toward self-improvement… A hopeful symbol of peace for military families awaiting the return of their solders… An expression of sympathy to someone who has lost a loved one.”
Enjoy the glorious purples and blues of the delphinium from the Community Garden. I thought you might enjoy a couple pictures of how these look when arranged with some contrasting blooms.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday and we are ready for the rush. This has always been one of our favorite holidays at Incahoots. Perhaps because we’re surrounded with immense quantities of gorgeous flowers and plants, or because we get to share stories with our happy customers, or perhaps because we get to see so many thoughtful kids with their dads trying to find just the right gift.
How could anyone not enjoy a day that gives us an excuse to say ‘thank you’ to the people who have given so much to us?
This week is also Teacher Appreciation Week, and is another perfect opportunity to express our thanks for everything teachers do.
And while we’re on the subject, and even though there’s not a national holiday to compel me to say it, thank you for being a part of Incahoots! We couldn’t do it without you.
