The Dirt - April 2011

Breathe in, breathe out, Welcome Spring with a grateful shout!

Jason Levin - Chief GringoCan you smell it? Just a little?
Sniff again. It’s there…
fainter in some spots than others,
but it’s there…

Thank goodness for spring and the renewal it brings! The sun is shining, birds are singing and it looks like some warmth is sneaking slowly but surely back into our winter-weary country. April and May call folks outside to get their gardens growing (Our very own Joan “Always dressed to the 9’s” Saunders planted her vegetable garden last weekend. I’m pretty sure this is what she wore to plant!) and the calendar announces several festive, flower-friendly events.

Passover, Administrative Professionals Week and Easter all hit at the end of April, and Mother’s Day is a hustle-y, bustle-y, beautiful occasion in May.

April Dates to Remember:
• 19th Passover
• 22nd Earth Day/Good Friday
• 24th Easter Sunday
• 27th Admin. Professionals Day

Mother Nature BouquetPersonally I’m very glad the month of April is here. March was a brutal weather month for us here in California. Besides more rain than we’ve seen in years, temperatures were 15 degrees below normal. This proved to be a little challenging, however, we’ve seen it before, we know how to get through it and stand ready to put flowers in boxes that will bring smiles to you and your customers.

I assure you that Dos Gringos’ fields in California and Mexico are bursting with fresh, top-quality favorites including Waxflower, Ranunculus, Marguerite Daisies, and lots of fresh Sunflowers!

Sunflowers are especially ideal for all the fun celebrations – showers, weddings, graduations, even backyard barbecues – just around the corner. I know, I know, I’m a little biased.

Ranunculus and Waxflower are healthy and in ample supply, and we’re very happy with our Larkspur from the dessert.
