Come in, come in! Glad to see the new cafe next door. Looks like it's gonna draw in a lot of new business, which is good for this Ole Belle! We usually carry anything ya need. Unfortunately, the late frosts, heavy rains and droughts have depleted the inventory. And bein' such a small floral shop and all, I just can't afford but a few of the basics. I couldn't help but notice all the beautiful flowers and such. I was wonderin' if maybe ya'll wouldn't mind sendin' some my way. Ya know, doin' the whole Southern Hospitality thing.

I need just about a little bit of everything. I could use any fresh flowers ya'll got to spare for my coolers. Poor things have been chillin' air. Ornimentals and fillers are pert near gone too. I had to sell all my pots and sundries just to keep the electricity going, so any extras for the shop would be much obliged. Most of all, I could really use some eye poppin' arrangements to grab folks' attention as they wander by.

Sorry to have to ask, but I figure anybody with the name FLOWERPOT Cafe' must be understandin' enough about the prediciment I'm in. It's all I can do to keep these doors open. But this here is my dream and I can't imagine ever closin' the door on that. I have been waitin' for a sign of some sort and I do believe I got it when ya'll moved in. Once I get up and running again, I'll be sure to return the favor. Appreciate anything available to help me out.

Hope ya'll enjoy the place once I get her restocked.

Our slogan is "Where Innovation, Creativity, Imagination and a Dash of Luck Collide" Hope my little store inspires this to happen for you!

Well, young lady, that is mighty kind of you to invite me on over to your wonderful cafeteria. I'm too good at ordering fancy coffees, but I do enjoy a good cup of the plain kind every once and a while.

Really appreciate you buying some of my wares. What I do have, I maintain the highest quality possible. I would love to see what comes out of those there flowers ya bought. Feel free to bring your arrangements in anytime and I will sell them for ya, free of charge. I imagine this could be good for the both of us. You buying my flowers, making the arrangements to attract the customers and turning a little profit for youself. I do believe that could work.

I know the stock is low on the embellishments, but feel free to use whatever you need. I will give you a discount rate to start ya off, say 10%? If things go well, it could be a permenent one.

Please drop by again. We usually have several of the larger florists come in to buy our flowers as we expect only the best from ourselves. Maybe one will take a gander at your arrangements and you could find yourself a whole new career. Stranger things have happened. Whenever they drop in, they do like to critique these arrangements, so be warned and don't take it personally. I personally think beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Have a good day and drop in anytime!

I just love your accent!
I've made an autumn arrangement for you. The rest of the flowers are in vases waiting to be 'arranged'!
I'll be back later with something else!

Well I'll be. I do believe that is one of the prettiest arrangments I have ever seen. I love the green zinnias? at the base which compliment the green in the yellow daisys? which go well with the sunflowers, topped off with one of my fast becomin favorites, Miss Glad. The lines are wonderful and what is that love little ornimental grass on the left side?

I must immediately put this in the front window. I have a little cooler display just waitin for this jewel. This will most certainly draw some customers and I will alert all my friends that we have us a glorified talent showcasin in the front window. I am sure they will wanna stop by and have a little look see at this. Just remember, some may be critics so take it all with a grain of salt.

You know you should start a portfolio of these darlins. I see good things in your future, sweet girl! Keep um comin! Plenty of room for anythin ya got.

Oh, and thanks for the accent comment. It is hard bein southern sometimes. We just do things a little differently than everyone else. A little more laid back, a little more relaxed. You should give the ole south a visit sometime. We tend to welcome all with open arms. Just remember, drop your g's from verbs, runnin, kickin, goin, and all one syllable words become two. for example, dog is pronounced dauwg, milk is me-aulk. Throw in a fell darlins, sweetie pies and sugars, and you got southern speak. Have fun on that holiday you were tell me about. Holiday, HeHe, still makes me chuckle. A holiday is Christmas, your goin on a vacation.

I was a little intimidated to meet with you tonight because of our language barriers. But now I understand just fine. Please let me know if I can contribute anything to the Diva's portfolio.

Sorry dear. Have you been here all this time? I went and left my hearin aides at the house again. Did you bring the perfume for me? What a sweetheart you are and my favorite, Chanel no. 5. Thank you for bringin all those lovely arrangements in last week. They sold like hotcakes. Here is your share, now don't spend it all in one place.

I have to admit, I went ahead and bought the first arrangement. I just couldn't help myself as it is such a beauty. My cats just loved it. They kept sniffin it all night. I love how you placed all the little flowers around the vase top. You really got some talent young lady. Keep it up and your gonna make this the hottest shop in the area. I am so glad you decided to open up next door. Foot traffic has really picked up.

Those darn frogs jumped right off the shelves too. But I haven't seen that young lady since she came in that day. Is she ok? Hardly saw anyone workin at the cafe. I did catch a view of that sweetheart, Traci. My what a doll she is. Bringin me tea and makin sure I am all settled in. Now she is a real jewel to have around.

Oh, I am just yammerin on. You look to be in a rush, but I would love to have ya back real soon. You're welcome to use my store anytime. There are some nice long tables in the back you can use anytime your heart desires. Have a good one. Bye bye.

Hi Belle,
Oh, the red ones are Anemone, you must like these because you liked the purple ones I had!
I was thinking about Marcia in the snow and decided to wrap them up with some laurel leaves.

I see a FOR SALE sign up at Belle's. Think I'll buy it!
It does get alot of customers with the flowerpot cafe' next door, maybe those flower arranging ladies will help me run the place.


Our cyber high St is really taking off with the new cafe opening, wonder what the other shops will turn into!

Hi Blossom, Yes I did buy Belles and I hope we will become good friends and can supply your cafe with fresh flowers from time to time.
This place will need a makeover and lots of fresh flowers in buckets outside to let everyone know Belles is open again.
I'm keeping the name Belle because I like it and you never know, Belle might return if things don't work out with the toy boy! LoL!

Coming soon... GRAND OPENING AT BELLES!

Well, ok, I will come clean, I dont actually own the Rival, BLOOMERS does.but she might turn it over to me. And oh how we will appreciate your art de fluers! Can we make a deal though, if I donate here will you just trade? This ecomony is killing all of us. Thats why BLOOMERS has been running around with her pockets turned inside out. Everything she had went into the opening billboard and entertainment the first night and sad to say she literally lost her shirt! (...ooops!)

And you know that other place down the road.. Ooters I think its called, well, they got wind of it and well, they were upset. We had to turn the fire hoses on them to cool them off! And that perked them right up and well, they brought over hotdogs for the weiner roast after chilling and grilling but... ...we had to micro wave the weinees and well that was why she was thinking she would shut the place down. It just got off on the wrong start! She kept pressing the button on the microwave for potatoes and well, the weeners were a tad over done. LOL!

Now Ooters is coming over and and well, things are getting crazier...they are screaming. gimme cooooold water...and well you know COLDWATER...he was a coward and turned tail and ran over here to take a hiding in the woodshed with Madam Woodsy. He wanted no part of Ooters. He had dishes he was sposed to be licking. And man oh man, opening night he got his belly plumb full.

SOZ, ok, deal? we trade back and forth?

Here is my first pile of fluers for ya.. just a wee little bribe if you will!

Bloomer, you stay here and when you get terri revived, make sure you tell her that the flower list is in the June 2009 In The Garden book. I think she will be well pleased to see each flower individually as they become unwrapped.

I have to go out to the woodshed for some ice. I will be back as soon as I can.
