Valentine's Day Orchids

posted on February 10th, 2012 by Kristin Lares

It's not just for the Valentine's Day Holiday; you can always take advantage of our Bristol Gardens' forever special where you buy one 3” Orchid for $19.99 and get one 3” Orchid free! I believe that orchids are one of the most fascinating and graceful flowers that we can bring into our homes. They have the power to bring elegance to any space and have the power to bring peace to any room. There are over 35,000 species available in an array of colors, shapes, and textures. One of my favorites is the Phalaenopsis commonly known as the Moth Orchid. I love to stare in the center of the flower and get lost in the intricate, frail, rigid edges. If you look closely, you can see the soft veins within the petal. Moth orchids look so delicate but are actually very hardy and can last up to three to four months in your home. This makes them a great value and with our promotion, everyone can afford to enjoy them. Over the centuries, orchids have become identified with wealth, elegance and… Read More

Celebrating 20 years of Humboldt Fog!

posted on February 9th, 2012 by Michelle Salatino

Humboldt Fog is truly a special cheese.  Not only is it beautiful to look at, it is quite delicious too!  This is a soft ripened goat's milk cheese; the texture is creamy around the outside, and slightly crumbly towards the middle.  The flavor is mild, yet tangy.  It is often mistaken for a blue cheese as it has a nice layer of vegetable ash running through the middle and just under the exterior.  This gives it a distinctive look that looks wonderful on a cheese plate.  Honey, berries and a fruity white wine are the perfect match for this lovely cheese. This gem will be on demo February 8th through February 14th from 10am – 5 pm daily.  Come on by and try a sample, you won’t be disappointed. For more information and recipes with Humboldt Fog please check out the Cypress Grove Website at www.cypressgrovechevre.com Read More
