Things I Love About My Job - #1

The flower truck from Salem Wholesale Flowers is definitely on the list! It's a "wet" truck - which means the flowers are in water and waiting for me to select my favorites. The selection is not as good as the Portland Flower Market of course, but the Flower Market is an hour away. Salem's truck arrives at my back door twice a week! I've been doing business with them for several years, and appreciate their attention to quality and customer service.

I can always pre-order flowers I need for special purposes, but I also love making my selections from the pretty things on the truck. Sometimes I can hear the flowers saying "Pick me! Pick me!" And they're usually right - those are the ones that fly out the door!
Look at this gorgeous selection of fall mums. We'll be getting orders for fall flowers from now until Thanksgiving. I love this time of year. And apparently a lot of other people do too. Thanks Salem!


  1. I love choosing flowers at will from pretty little buckets all in a row. Also love the victory mums. They are a good accent for a sunflower wedding theme. The small ones make the cutest boutonnieres.

  2. Thanks for posting the comment. I love hearing from others! You are also the "geeky gardener" aren't you? I had to smile at that because I also know my first frost date!

  3. Yes, and so glad to know there is another "geeky gardener" out there.

  4. Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I am glad I found your blog too.
    Please play along with the color if you wish.
