New Retail Sales House

Here are a few more images of the Retail Sales House.  It takes quite a bit of effort to move plants out of our greenhouses and over to this area.

Greenhouse happenings @ mioux florist

I have been lax on posting new content this blog and to miouxflorist.blogspot.com, the flower shop blog, for way too long.

As many readers know, we grow and wholesale/retail Easter Lilies and Hydrangeas for the Easter season.  We moved a lot of Easter lilies out between last half March and first week April.

Also, we have added a new outdoor sales area.  The sales area is comprised of shade house and new benches.  On Monday, 23-April-2012, the new parking lot gets installed.  In between the Easter holiday, greenhouse sales and being temporarily short-handed with staff, our shade house opening has been delayed a bit.

Now for some pictures.  Many readers know that I like to post more pictures than copy, so here are a few images from the past month or so....
