With the amazing spring weather we have been having, we find our green thumbs are coming out in full force.  It’s hard not to start planting every seed packet, bulb, and flower seedling in site.  If you are like us and not only love garden-fresh blooms but also love caring for a garden (or know someone who does) , you may want to consider growing your own flowers for bouquets and/or table arrangements.

We can’t think of a sweeter way to start off Kaylee + Trent’s Decorah engagement session than with sweet treats at Pinter’s Gardens and Pumpkins Candy Store.  They were all smiles as they played around in the shop and then ended the session at Luther College, where they both attended college and where their relationship officially began.
