Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have.
Stephanie is still thriving with business all due to her amazingly loyal flower children community! We’re a small local business that could not be where we are if it wasn’t for our faithful following and we cannot express how thankful we are that during these tough times you have reached out and let Stephanie brighten up your day with a lovely bouquet or flower arrangement.
We offer free contactless delivery or you can take a drive and travel to Stephanie’s shop on her rural farm for curbside pick up while enjoying the scenery that surrounds our home ❂
Also, Stephanie is now taking 2021 bookings for weddings – just give Stephanie a call, send her an email or private message through Facebook or Instagram.
Flowers might as well be the blood running through our veins ⤑ Stephanie’s talented son, Sidney, opened and operates his own ‘Certified Naturally Grown’ flower farm specializing in growing unique & uncommon flowers. Sid’s flower garden is conveniently located at the same farm as Stephanie’s Flower Shop.
Jessica, Stephanie’s (one of three) daughters, is an amazingly talented pastry chef! She graduated from L’Academie de Cuisine with her Pastry of Arts Certification and specializes in custom cakes, cupcakes, cake pops or anything else your heart (or stomach) desire.
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.
Make someone’s day that much more special or simply brighten up your own by giving Stephanie a ring or stop by her shop to grab a bunch of freshly picked flowers or an arrangement of lovely seasonal flora. Whatever the reason, Stephanie’s Secret Garden Flower Shop is here for you ♥

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
To My Flower People: Stephanie and her flower family miss seeing everyone’s smiling faces at her workshops, but due to the pandemic we unfortunately do not know when we’ll be hosting the next one. Everyone please be safe and we will keep you updated on any news🧚🏻♂️
In the mean time enjoy some candids of past workshops ⤸
“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and autumn was awakened.”
“Autumn leaves don’t fall, they fly. They take their time and wander on this their only chance to soar.”
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.
Late Summer yawns; tired and desperate clinging to the light dry air that no longer clings to the grass in beads of dew. She eventually succumbs tucking herself into a deep sleep within her cozy horizon. She wakes up late morning and spreads her yellow rays, which zigzag and pierce through openings in black-out curtains, shyly casting elongated geometrical shapes that creep up bedroom walls, beckoning us to rise and shine.
The zephyr grows crisp as the days grow short. Leaves still envelop branches that will soon resemble scarecrow-like appendages, who long for a fine blanket of snow. Birds migrate South once again as the Harvest Moon dances across the sky. The shift in air beckons the bugs and coyotes to quiet down – deepening the already dark night’s new silence. It’s always the time of the season ☾
Get outside and fill those lungs deep with that crisp 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 Autumn days of our extraordinary, ordinary lives with fresh cuttings of the most magnificent flora Mother Nature has to offer this season.
Stephanie’s specializes in the creative, chic, and unusual. Floral designs range from classic elegance to funky and over the top! Stephanie incorporates herbs, berries, fruits, feathers and ribbons. Containers are frequently vintage finds, teapots and crystal compotes.
