Living for Flowers – Let the Blooms Begin - Rhode Island Real Estate .
Thanks to a mentor and blogging associate, Katerina Gassett, I am being pushed a bit to ‘peel the onion’ about my other passions.
Those who know me know I live and breathe my calling of Rhode Island real estate. It is the want to serve and be of service to qualified buyers and Rhode Island sellers (conventional or short sales) that exhilarates me everyday. I just love looking at houses!
But I have other sides to me especially regarding in the area of flowers – le fleurs of Rhode Island so to speak…
If you have read my profile you will know that besides my corporate job in the past that I also owned and operated an organic farm in Kingston RI. Every Saturday for 13 years I took my exotic annuals and perennials to the South Kingstown Farmers Market to sell them and share my knowledge with all. It truly was my passion and my gardens were amazingI have been told.
But I did not start out with lots of flowers at the market ...no I made fresh fruit(apple, peach, plum, etc.) tortes which were very much in demand. I would bake and bring them to farmers market but that became grueling. My plant business gave me more satisfaction so it escalated and fruit tortes were done only by special order.
Although I ran a minor plant business, it was the evenings, early mornings and the rest of weekends that consumed my time with the growing, propagating and harvesting of the various plants and flowers.
I did have a living for flowers and the color palettes of blooms on my acreage would stop traffic at times. I had exotic flowers that were still unheard of such as calibrachoas and striped cannas which are now found everywhere at garden centers. I like to say that I introduced many of these plants into the homes of other avid RI gardeners that pushed the garden centers to start ordering these unusual varieties of flowers for the masses!
I had over 8 acres of land so a living for flowers took over my piece of Rhode Island real estate. Still today it is an essential part of my being in real estate. My eye for curb appeal and scene placement does help my clients in staging their homes to sell. Plus I always share plants with my clients!
Now I have a small lot that is overflowing in blooms from March through November every year. Yes, a much smaller scale of flower passions exist because my time is well spent doing another thing I love.. real estate.
