Having your own business has many challenges that pop up everyday. One big one that many new business owners put a lot of thought into is their name. When I started Trisha's Flowers in 2001 I choose a name that didn't require much explanation. As the years have progressed I have increasingly wanted to change the name to something that more descriptively expresses what I long to do with my business, and it is....Flourish! The word Flourish for me encompasses many thoughts into one - and I love them all!
"Flourish" implies that something is healthy and growing to it's utmost potential. This is our goal with everything we grow. We are certainly students in God's great outdoor classroom of our gardens, but school never gets boring!
To do something with a flourish to us means to do it well and with excellence, beauty, and creativity; going beyond mediocre. Our passion is to do skillful work, be good to our customers, and keep on learning and growing with the trends in the floral world.
Lastly, we want our lives and the lives we touch to flourish. That much anticipated wedding day, the momentous birthday celebration, the weekly bouquet on the dining room table, the bouquet given just because there is love between two people; every ordinary and life changing moment deserves to be fully enjoyed. We believe that when life's junctures include flowers, we are able to stop and more fully appreciate the moment and people around us. And when you get down to the most important parts of life, relationships are a big part of what help us to flourish and fully embrace the goodness in life.
"The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green..." (Psalm 92:12-14)
Looking forward to many years of flourishing flowers and seeing your lives flourish along with them!
