It's my party!!!

Yep .... I am throwing a party for me!

Well ... my alter-ego.  It was 10 years ago that Miss Eff's opened to .... absolutely no fan-fare.

None.

We just quietly tried to sell flowers on a gravel road that supposedly no one would ever drive on to pick flowers.

We sold little bouquets.... passed out lemonade and chocolate chip cookies.

And we were grateful for each and everyone that made that trip down that gravel road.




 



And we still are.

We had no places to sit.  No support for the flowers.  Just a little weedy patch of flowers with straw paths......





But we had hope that maybe ... just maybe .... you would like the blue sky, fluffy clouds and the noisy roosters.

And ....... at the end of that year......... I showed a profit.

$27.10.

Since that time ... there have probably been far more losses than profits as we have tried to grow and grow and grow.  That little 20'x20' patch of flowers has grown to almost an acre of cut flower gardens.

There are corn-zebos, and Summer Kitchens and patios that look like quilts.  And my dream of a garden full of pretty flowers has come true.

So it is time for a party .......

Like the little garden I started, this will be low key.  But please come out .... cut a bouquet .... have a cupcake before the icing melts off!!!

Sunday ... June 24th ... 1-3.  Its Miss Eff's  party and she would like you to be there.  :)
