there will be justice

"...they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing, and  the second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time."

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo

I hope and pray that what we remember and what we talk about is the energy and enthusiasm that this young man had in his life; that we look to our troops and realize that they are willing to be in harm's way - for our sake - at any and every turn; that the distorted agenda and cowardly evil of a few individuals does not eclipse the security that our armed forces and police work every day to protect and uphold.  

And, I hope and pray that there will be no paradise, no 72 dark-eyed maidens... only justice.

giving thanks

The most magical time of year - leaves turning colour, crisp evening air and even crisper apples at the farmers markets - at i fiori we are so ready for autumn with branches and seed pods and flowers in rich saturated colours!
This week we also have fresh thyme and sage in the shop - perfect for adding to roasted root vegetables or including in your turkey stuffing.
aphelandra - zebra plant

hare's foot fern
Since we are all beginning to spend more time inside, there are lots of new plants & ferns to choose from - the natural air cleaners!

And... wait for it... a   s-a-l-e?

This Friday evening (October 10) between 7pm and 9pm during the October art crawl, i fiori is tidying up our inventory as we make room for the new season and new items. There are onesies and twosies of vases and pots looking for a home, and we will have a sale table featuring these items. Many will be half price or less!
And just so the new vases and pots don't feel left out - all regular priced ceramic and glass will be also be 15% off regular prices.

See you in the shop!
