Wednesday is our year-round closed day. But, tomorrow, we will be open from Noon to 9 pm. We will finally celebrate First Thursday on the Avenue.
Surprise Specials tomorrow at Contessa’s …. Come take a peek!
It’s Monday and we are open from Noon to 6 p.m. In between rain drops some of our regulars have stopped by to purchase gifts. We love Mondays in the shop. Monday’s always seem to bring in new faces. Our post office customers like to stop in too. We are here moving and fixing and happy to see you. Stop in if you are out and about.
Here is a pic of an Amaryllis plant we have in the shop today. One week ago it had a stalk with three blooms. Yesterday the second stalk bloomed and this morning a second flower opened on the same stalk. We can’t figure out this plant. She normally blooms in February. Can you explain it?
Once she stops blooming we will cut her back, add a little fresh dirt on top and put her out in our garden to grow green leaves. Then in late October we will once again bring her in, cut her back, water and hope for the best. She should bloom in Dec or Jan, during the Holiday season. Our crazy weather year may have her in a state of being very mixed up. We don’t actually know how else to explain it.
