GentleDogs: What’s the best way to get the fur-ladies to swoon for you? Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy; give them a flower…. Bitches love flowers.
That is why, I like to visit the Miami Flower Market, the best floral (and plant) wholesaler in all of Miami. You like succulents? They have those. You like plants like orchids and bromeliads? They have those too! And cut flowers? Duh! Every type imaginable. And, if they happen not to have what you are looking for, they will order it for you. Now that is what I call some tree-mendous service. 🙂
The Miami Flower Market also hosts a variety of DIY (that stands for Do It Yourself) classes:
Flower Crown creations – learn to make your very own crown out of flowers (this is for girls, obviously) Succulent Terrarium – create the cutest home/environment for the always pawsome succulent plants Wrapped Bouquet Class – learn to mix & match your very own bouquet (this is my fave because I can tailor the flowers I plan on giving, to the type of fur-lady in question).
Poisonous/Toxic Plants to Pets
As I mentioned above about the Sago Palms, there are plants that are toxic to your fur-babies. Make sure you do not leave these plants* lying around the house/are easy to reach and chew on as they could cause some serious damage:
Dieffenbachia (Aka: Dumb Cane)…what a DUMB plant to be poisonous.
Pothos (Aka: Devil’s Ivy)…What an appropriate name. Devil.. Why you have to be like that?
Zamiaculcas (ZZ plants)
*Note: there are more plants than the listed above. Make sure to do your research before placing plants in your home. Your pets thank you. 😀
