Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.
Weddings are a specialty, and no affair is too large or small. Weddings can be done in the entire Mid Atlantic area: Our wedding flowers have adorned weddings from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor down to farms and vineyards in Fauquier County, Virginia. Bridal consultations are done at no charge with appointments made at the bride’s convenience. For brides who have chosen to use Stephanie’s flowers samples of the bridal and bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as centerpieces are provided at no cost

Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don’t they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.
Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Summer afternoon-summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
I feel lucky to be a Marylander. We’re fortunate to see the seasons bleed into one another while our landscape gradually shifts around us. Trees grow obese with succulent emerald leaves as wild weeds creep, hug and swallow their neighbors in evergreen climbing ivy, that creates a jungle suburbia that line our rural roads.
Mid-Summer twilight yawns and her lingering exhale leaves the brown spotted grass covered in a new sheet of dew. Eventually she succumbs and sinks into the inviting darkness of the lavender horizon. She rises early morning and spreads her strong yellow rays that zigzag and seep into the cracks of thick black-out curtains. She casts warm geometrical shapes that creep up bedroom walls, beckoning us to rise and shine.
Her breath grows hot and muggy as the day creeps on. Limbs drenched in all colors of green dance in the zephyr of a pre-storm. That electrifying, yet calming presence that encompasses your lungs, stimulating every cell in your body. These magical months are spent in eternally bare-feet, spotting lightning bugs that cast small and magical halos around us as the symphony of frogs and insects continue their songs as the Grain Moon grows large. The fragile shift in the air beckons a deep awakening that cloaks the plum sky of an August night. It’s always the time of the season🎴
Get outside and fill those lungs deep with that regenerative air. Try, try, try to focus on the now, while enjoying all the little beautiful things this season has to offer us; maybe then eventually the rest will fall into place.
Stephanie and her Secret Garden Flower Shop is here to enhance and revivify these spring days of our extraordinary, ordinary lives with fresh cuttings of the most magnificent flora Mother Nature has to offer this season.
