Spring Blooms


Spring has sprung at EEFM !!
 
Spring brings bright colour tones and incredible sweet scents, and from September through to November you can find these gorgeous blooms online or at our shop on the corner of East Terrace and Grenfell Street. Spring is my favourite season, not only because its means longer sunnier days and warmer weather, but because there is such an abundance of blooms available! There’s no excuse this Spring not to treat yourself or a loved one with some stunning flowers from EEFM! I’m a November baby so I know how I’ll be treating myself on my birthday this year!
 
Whether you like native blooms or pastel tones, there’ll be something for you! I’ve put together a little list of spring seasonals that really snapshots what you’ll be able to find this Spring at EEFM!
