Jane McDermott said she was honored that their business was selected as she takes great pride in making it a beautiful and relaxing location. "I want to do my part to make our downtown area look inviting to those who come our way," she said.

Bench seating is available for customers to relax and enjoy the flowers and decorations.

"I got the idea of my hanging baskets when visiting Victoria Canada, waiting to board a ship to Alaska," she said. "They had light poles similar to ours with beautiful hanging baskets. The flower purslane is the most hardy for our Oklahoma weather. It comes in red and yellow, my favorite colors for the Rangers and Goldbugs."

McDermott also enjoys decorating the area for the different seasons.

"My love of flowers is a gift from my mother," she said. "I think she had a permanent green thumb. They remind me of her and her love."

Other special plants in the beautiful pots include hibiscus, sweet potato vine, asparagus fern, geraniums and pansies for winter. McDermott enjoys the convenience of purchasing a wide variety of flowers locally.
