firstpoints.jpg - Some of our first poinsettias. I believe this pic was taken in 1979. This bench was where our current sales counter is today. For a peek at what this has blossomed into check out the winter page of the virtual visit!

georgeatwork.jpg - George Funke in his mid 80's painting a sidewall of the greenhouses. This photo is from the late 1980's. George was truly a man who lived by the phrase "the harder I work, the luckier I get" :)

strelitzia.jpg - Taken in the late 1990's in our 3rd house front. Colorful exotics are always a joy here for both customers and the staff who care for them. This is a picture of a Strelitzia reginae in flower.
