VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

Thank you to the Powes, Moores, City of Sierra Madre, and Santa Monica Conservancy for opening your gardens this week! You inspire us, and we know you inspire LA too!

We are also incredibly grateful to our wonderful team for bringing it this month, working late nights and weekends to be sure we could bring our very best to LA, via tours and in gardens throughout LA.

This is always a fun time of year – hope to see you out there in the blooms this weekend!

Sincerely,
Cassy and Kirk
