Three years ago I opened this wonderful store nestled in Downtown Edmonds in a 100 year old house. Following my dream I set out to amaze and delight shoppers who would visit the store. Old World Home Decor with an organic influence greet those who enter. In the backyard of the shop is a growing Nursery and gardens filled with surprise. Junk fences laden with relics of yesterday wrap the Nursery while old apple trees and a wonderful collection of favortite flowers come and go with the changing season.
Here's a wonderful way to recycle all those branches you might have lost in the passing storm. If you know that the branches are from a Spring flowering shrubs or trees, clean up the branches as best you can and bring them inside. Place them in a vase or bucket and keep the water level about 2-3 inches covering the freshly cut...I mean broken, end of the branch. Then be patient.... and as the outside stays gray and stormy, you can enjoy an early Spring inside. Those once broken branches destined for the firebox or compost can now have a second lease on life by forcing them into blossom inside the house. There many great branches to use. In between the coming rain showers, go for a walk in your gardnes and tell me what you find. Pictured is Magnolia branches.
