Poinsettias are beautiful,they’re safe & they say “Christmas”. For years they have gotten a bad rap for being poisonous but extensive testing debunks this myth. In addition to providing festive color, poinsettias are safe and can even be composted.
Here are some studies and their findings:
As with any non-food product, however, the poinsettia is not meant to be eaten and can cause varying degrees of discomfort; therefore, the plant should be kept out of the reach of young children and curious pets.

I know, I know. It was technically still November when all the Dande gals got together for our annual Christmas party but we like to think of it as the official start of Christmas Season! There was quite an age span (with Shiloh at 8 months and Marian at 76) and lots of laughter and memories!
Shirley regaled the group with her annual interpretation of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas which is always a howler! Delicious food was eaten, gifts exchanged and a few carols sang (with a Dandelions twist, of course!).
Now we can focus on the centerpieces & Christmas bouquets that will fill our dreams until Christmas day. The shop becomes its own little Santa’s Workshop as all the girls crank out beautiful flowers to brighten everyone’s homes.
Tis the Season!!
