The other day I had to have a large branch removed from a tree in my front yard. As the branch came down, I noticed a wonderful bird's nest tucked in the corner of the branch. It is amazing how complex this nest was made out of just twigs and straw. I thought of the hard working birds who made this nest for their young babies. I have a couple of robins that follow me around the yard when I am working outside. They love for me to dig around in the ground in hopes I will dig up a delicious dinner of worms for them. I know that they give their first tastings to their young ones waiting patiently for them. You know they love to see their mom come back with this special treat. This is the time of year we honor our mother's for all they do for us everyday. Let us help you honor your mother with a gift as unique as your mother. Hope to see you soon! (Don't forget to visit us at our beautiful tent at the Festival On The Round this Saturday, May 3rd.)

Some people have a bad impression of artificial florals. I can see their point when I remember all the plastic flowers of the past! And, there are some really bad "silk" florals with strange colors that scream "I am fake!". At Evelyn's, we pride ourself on our beautiful collection of silk florals. We have some of the most realistic and unique florals you will ever find. Flowers and greenery always brighten up a room. Florals are one of the best ways to soften up a hard space, such as bookcases, coffee tables, and mantles. Let's face it, we don't all have a green thumb. Now you will just look like you have gardening in your blood. Only you will know that our florals are silk. Just be sure to tell your spouse not to water them!
