Breezy Northern Sea Oats

It's been a really hot and dry summer here in southern Wisconsin.  Many of my flowers have packed up and gone home, but my northern sea oats continue to dutifully sway despite the hot wind. 

Isaiah 40:8 says, "the grass withers, and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever."  I just assume that if I plant my flowers, fertilize, water, and weed, my flowers will bloom, as they always have.  That's what always happens.  But this year, with the hot winds, the rock hard ground, and the lack of moisture from above, they are few and far between. 

Really, what can we truly count on in this rocky economy, this severe drought, problems popping up uninvited here and there?  Actually, not much. But, thankfully, what we can count on is all we need.

Open Again!

We've returned from London and everything is back in full swing here.  Since our return it has been beastly hot here in Wisconsin, so I took it upon myself to do some much needed renovations on the Elizabeth's Flowers website.

The Paper Making Kits page is finally in catalog form, so you don't have to scroll down several miles to see each of the paper making kits we have available. It's much neater now, and less cluttered.  Now, if I could only get my basement to look that way!

In celebration of this, and in order to encourage you to take a look for yourself, I am offering $5.00 off any order or more on, for the next 25 customers, using the code: makepaper
