Fall has come and gone and the ground is frozen and covered in a blanket of crisp white snow. The refreshing arctic air swirls in the wind and if anything reinvigorates me. Gone are the golden hues of fall floral's, and with Winter comes the hues of holiday colors, palettes of red, burgundy, shades of white and Christmas greens. When we think of Winter, often we fail to think of flowers. However, their are many festive flowers this time of year, such as, Amaryllis, Hellebore, Snowdrops, Miniature Daffodils, Freesias, Holly, Viburnum, Ivy, Berries, and Dogwood. These are just to name a few of the Fresh Cut Flowers that we florists get to work with. Looking for potted plants this time of year, one cannot go anywhere in December without running into a Festive Poinsettia, Cute little Cyclamen, Colorful Christmas Cactus and brightly flowered Azalea's. On a trip to our Wholesale Flower Market, I caught sight of this little tree and had to snap a picture as the vivid red berries, reminded me that not everything floral is white in winter.
