STORY OF MY LOVE

“With elegance, romance, and nostalgia in every bloom, roses swept me off my feet early in life, and have been my source of inspiration ever since.”

THE CREATOR

With elegance, romance, and nostalgia in every bloom, roses swept me off my feet early in life, and have been my source of inspiration ever since.

It started with fresh cut blooms - an obsession that was well fed while living in the lower mainland. But after returning to the Okanagan to raise my family at a slower pace of life, I found the selection for cut flowers limited. I can recall the exact moment, while tending to my vegetable garden, when the, somewhat audacious, idea of my own rose garden popped into my head.

With the support of my loving family and devoted team, my big dream has taken root. From seeding, planting, and weeding, to harvesting, processing, and finally, arranging into unique, seasonally-inspired designs - my passion for fresh cut blooms has flourished into a passion for the entire growing process.

I hope you stick around and grow with us here at CC Bloom.
