The Person You Have to Fear is the Guy Next Door with a Gun

The mass-shooting that took place in a church in a rural Texas town Sunday morning follows what has become an all-too-familiar pattern in our nation these days: An unhappy white guy, with no particular axe-to-grind, decides to slaughter a bunch of innocent people who are in a church, at a country music concert, or shopping in a Walmart.

Holiday Wreaths 2017 – Glamorous Glitz

Our third accent choice for this year’s fully decorated wreath orders is the newly minted “Glamorous Glitz.” For years we have been known for our use of glorious natural materials, specifically pine cones, grasses, seed pods, and unusual dried flowers and twigs. These are still very popular, but an explosion of sparkly accents have caught our eye in recent seasons, and we began using them on wreaths destined for our own homes. We were afraid to send out such outrageous designs to unsuspecting customers. However, we began publicizing them on our Wreath of the Day website feature, which runs from shortly after Wreath Week through New Year’s Day, and the feedback was quick and clear – some of you out there (and you know who you are) want glitter and shine.  So this year, for the first time, you may specify Glamorous Glitz as a design option. Order soon at http://www.gardenclubbackbay.org/shop/
