Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yay, Valentines Day 2014 is finally here! Last week was such a surprise, with all the snow we received in Portland. But that didn’t stop us from getting ready for the big day, and we’re so excited to see what this year brings. Valentine’s Day at Sammy’s is quite the production, and we always manage to make it fun. Stop by, we would love to see you this Valentine’s Day.

And yes, this is a naturally heart shaped hydrangea. Don’t you love it!
