A Good View on Easter


Merri and I hope you have a joyful Easter celebration tomorrow.

One wonderful part of having an international lifestyle is that we have gained so many perspectives on so many concepts.  I would like to share one  viewpoint on Easter we gained from Ecuador shamans, with you.

rosaspamba

We were hiking our hacienda Rosaspamba enjoying its incredible panoramas, abounding bird life and gained an unexpected Easter message from a shaman whose religion does not celebrate Easter.

Dawn rose orange, glinting over virgin forests and a veil of rolling mists.  Merri and I were with two shamans  standing deep in the jungle watching the morning sunrise, smelling the fresh greenness of the forest and listening to a serenade of thousands of bird songs.

rosaspamba

Merri and me hiking with the shamans.  We walked in the dawn, examining mist covered medicinal plants that help cure ulcers, ringing in the ears, infections, stomach pains, high blood pressure, itching, bronchitis and other diseases.  We learn about Dragon’s Blood, Una De Gato and dozens of others.

One important lesson the shamans brought as we worked our way through the deep woods came from their sense of play.  These shamans have nothing in material terms but as we entered the woods they were gloriously happy just to be alive, amidst nature and with friends.  This day was one more adventure for them to be grateful for.  Their sweet simplicity and spontaneity kept them alert in the moment, no cares for tomorrow, no regrets of the past.

Each moment was their playground.

When they saw a vine hanging by a cliff, we stopped and swung, yelling like Tarzan!  When the correct tree appeared we quit looking seriously at medicinal plants and learned how to use vines on our feet to shimmy straight to the top.  When we reached the waterfalls, we took a dip.

This was their gift and Easter message.  Celebrate being born again on every day.   Shuck off the things that are killing us and be born again.  The shamans showed us we should celebrate Easter, by living its celebration every day.

So here is the message I send from Merri’s and my hearts and from these two precious men.  Live for the moment, every minute, every day.  Let the rising of each dawn bring you a new birth.  Celebrate being born again today. Then tomorrow do it again and the next and the next.

Then do it every day.

There is no past to regret.  There is no future to worry over.

There is just today so live, love and enjoy.

Easter reminds us of this and I invite you to join me this year in living as if every day is Easter.

Merri and I send our wishes for a wonderful, fulfilling day with special meanings that fulfill you the year through.

Reduce Stress With Sound

 

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.

Liars?

They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Reduce stress.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!

Proof?

At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

You can order the online Super Thinking Workshop here ($49.95)

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Our guarantee.

I guarantee it.  Order the Super Thinking Workshop.  Use it for two months.  If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.

Order the online Super Thinking Workshop here ($49.95)

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.

Ecuador Easter Roses – Last Days to Order


Fresh Ecuador roses can be delivered by UPS to your home the Thursday before Easter.

You can order 25, 50 or 100 Fresh Ecuador Roses until Monday March 21, 2016 10am Easter Daylight Time for delivery.

ecuador-mother's-day-Roses

How fresh are these roses?   Here is an amazing story.  Our fresh cut Ecuador Easter roses were so fresh that they began to sprout.  When they had wilted (after almost two weeks) I clipped the sprouting stems and put them in our garden.

This an indication that these are absolutely the freshest, best roses you can provide delivered directly to your door anywhere to any US postal code by UPS.  (We are sorry they cannot be shipped to Canada).

Mother' s Day Ecuador roses

Since shipping is the biggest cost of our roses and the shipping cost for 50 roses is the same as 25, you can save and have 50 fresh cut roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska (including shipping) for only $95.

Kitchen-roses

Here are 50 fresh Ecuador roses.

To order, click on your choice below.  Your order goes direct to Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will email a UPS tracking number the day the roses are shipped to make sure you can coordinate your delivery time.

UPS or Fedex will deliver your roses to you or your recipient. Thursday March 23, 2016 just in time to fully open for Easter.

mother's Day'roses

100 fresh Ecuador roses.

Order 25 Roses for $79.

Order 50 fresh Ecuador roses $91.

Order 100 fresh Ecuador roses ($145).

Premium Quality Roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists.

These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air and are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them.  The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated UPS or Fedex facility, then flown to your destination for immediate delivery to your home or office.  This means they last longer.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses you receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real,  green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification.  They are either ecologically sound and certified, or they aren’t.

There you have it…three great reasons to experience the warmth of the people and beauty of Ecuador… the freshest… best, least expensive premium roses… that help the environment and the poor by having them delivered into your home.

Order here.

Order 25 Roses for $79.

Order 50 fresh Ecuador roses $91.

Order 100 fresh Ecuador roses ($145).

When your roses arrive, open them with the UPS or Fedex driver. If you are not satisfied do not accept delivery and have the UPS driver take them back.  If you are sending the roses as a gift be sure to tell the lucky recipient to inspect the roses.

If for any reason you do not love your roses and return them at delivery, Roberto will give you a full refund.

Rejuvination Thoughts on Easter


Happy Easter!

The Easter message we share today was given to me before many years ago but remains true.

That sharing took place many years ago at an Easter sunrise service… in Naples, Florida at Unity Church.

sunrise

Jake Kern the Unity minister, after building and being head of Unity in Naples for decades, was retiring. This was to be his last sermon and in the tradition there the service was outside… in a pine woods… around a bonfire.  Taking in the morning chill… the rising moist and bird song… we waited.

Then Jack began… a message to me about renewal of life and a major shift of rejuvenation at age 50.

Jack began by sharing a Bible verse Leviticus 25:9-12 which says:

“You shall have the trumpet sounded throughout all your land. And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and you shall proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you: you shall return, every one of you, to your property and every one of you to your family. That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you: you shall not sow, or reap the aftergrowth, or harvest the unpruned vines. For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you: you shall eat only what the field itself produces.”

A year of jublilee… at age 50. What a nice thought… a powerful thought of renewal and growth at any age.

This thought helped me understand the important of keeping one’s activities… one’s business and lifestyle in balance with the rhythms of nature.

The importance of seven is pretty clear… Sabbath is the seventh day.  We have all heard of taking a sabbatical. This is the time when we leave the old cycle and rest before shifting gears and beginning anew.  We have all heard of the seven year itch. Is this the body saying, “Hey Bud, time to shift”.

The Vedic and Andean philosophy is that at about this time we should leave the material aspect of our life and become more spiritual.

Life sciences from India and the Andes suggest that the first 50 years of life should take care of the material and the second 50, the spiritual.

Here is what Jack’s Easter message meant to me.  There is a time and place for everything. Our being has been created with a incredible gift… a great inner wisdom that helps us to to take different steps… accomplish different goals at different times in our life.

If we recognize and take advantage of this inherent intelligence within and use it in our entire life….including business… investing and lives, we’ll do better  and find life more fulfilling.

This does not mean we have to give up our possessions and drop out of the material world.   Technology allows us to have positive, service oriented businesses that bring good to mankind and the world.

This sense of spiritual business rejuvenation appears to be taking place.   The older population are applying the experience and wisdom they have gained into businesses that help make the world a better place.

 A USA Today article entitled “Older entrepreneurs find new niche in startups” by Lynn Hicks, of the Des Moines Register suggests that boomers still lead the way in helping Western society evolve.

Here is an excerpt (bolds are mine):  Did you see 27-year-old Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg? Or maybe Ben Milne, who created two successful companies in his 20s, including the mobile payment darling Dwolla? Or Ben Silbermann, who 10 years after graduating from Des Moines’ Roosevelt High School helped launch one of the fastest growing websites ever with Pinterest?

But if you look beyond those headline-grabbing names, you’re more likely to find a baby boomer launching a new business.

Over the past decade, the highest rate of entrepreneurial activity belongs to the 55 to 64 age group, according to a study by the Kauffman Foundation, a Kansas City, Mo.-based entrepreneurship institute. The 20 to 34 age bracket has the lowest rate.

Kauffman’s latest study shows that about 23% of new entrepreneurs in 2010 were in the 55 to 64 age group, compared with 15% in 1996.

“We tell clients, ‘We’ve made lot of mistakes and we’re not likely to repeat them.’ Lots of people in their 40s and 50s come to Colwell to discuss launching a business.

“They have a passion for something. They see a problem that needs to be solved,” he said.

Boomers often have some natural advantages for entrepreneurship, including experience, expertise and finances.

“Many baby boomers are not interested in retirement. They’re always interested in building something,”.

Merri and I send our best wishes that this will be a joyous day of renewal for you.

Ecuador Rose Story


Last week’s Ecuador rose story may have started a trend. I like it!

A reader sent this note and photo:

ecuador-roses

Gary, On several occasions I have ordered Roses from you for a very special lady. On this occasion it was for her birthday. I ordered 50 and was not disappointed. I have attached a photo of us as proof of how beautiful they really are. I will be ordering more, as they are a terrific value.  Regards to You and Merri

He ended his kind note with an Irish proverb we have all heard at one time or the other but worth reading again:

Work like you don’t need the Money
Dance like no one is Watching
Sing like no one is Listening
Love like you’ve never been Hurt
And live life every day as if it were your Last

We just had a note about Easter roses and lilies from Roberto Ribadeniera, our flower supplier. He wrote:

Gary, I just talked to the farm about lilies, here is what we can do for Easter:

Easter is on April 4th which is Sunday.

So we can schedule the lilies or roses to arrive on Thursday April 1st, 2010.

The price for roses still the same $79 for 50.

Easter lilies will be the large oriental variety in assorted colors (white & pink) like this.

Ecuador-easter-lily rags:

The packing is an eight box, for either 50 roses or 20 stems of lilies.

The price for lilies will also be $83.

Ecuador Flower Longevity


Ecuador’s flower longevity is one reason why Ecuador rose and Ecuador lilies make such a great gift.

See how to order Ecuador Roses here

Recently I wrote how my order of 25 Ecuador lilies actually gave us almost 100 blossoms. There are three or four blossoms on each Ecuador lily.

I arranged three full vases of Ecuador lilies. Here is one…

ecuador-roses

two and…

ecuador-roses

three.

These arrangements lasted over two weeks!

Then we traveled to our daughter’s home for a visit in Florida and some of the Ecuador lilies we sent her for Easter still looked good… even though they were two weeks old.  Here they are.

ecuador-roses

Now I have been able to see a good example of Ecuador rose longevity as well.

For Mother’s Day, I sent my mom red Ecuador roses.  They were delivered Tuesday May 5th.

Regretfully mom was then hospitalized.

We flew out to Portland May 11th.  Some of the roses had been brought along to the hospital where they did not receive any care… sitting in direct sunlight…not put in water immediately and then this was water stale.  They were almost gone.

Fortunately on May 12 we brought mom home (yea, she said!) and I dragged these wilting Ecuador roses along.  I snipped their ends and put them in fresh water.

We saw amazing results by the next day.

On the way back I also stopped at Safeway and bought a dozen yellow roses from Colombia.  Thus we can compare.

ecuador-roses

I took this photo on May 14, nine days after these mistreated Ecuador roses were delivered.

They still looked great.

I added in a couple of the super market Colombia yellow roses for comparison. The yellow roses were two days out of the store.

You can see the difference in the size of the heads.

History suggests that the Colombian roses never fully open and that the Ecuador roses will last two or three times longer.

The Ecuador roses cost $1.59 per stem delivered to mom’s doorstep… including over the one fourth of the price ($20 of the $79) being donated to Land of the Sun to help the poor of Ecuador.

The Colombia roses were .83 cents a stem at the store.

Plus the Ecuador roses are environmentally certified.

In short the 365 days a year of direct sunlight mean that Ecuador flowers are bigger, longer lasting and brighter than most roses you’ll find in any super market… plus thanks to Fedex they can be delivered directly to your door.

Ecuador Mother’s Day Lilies


Fresh Ecuador Mother’s Day lilies and roses are now available to be delivered to your home in the USA. They will be delivered on Tuesday 5th May in the USA only. Final orders can be accepted Thursday April 30th at 10am Eastern time.

Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.

ecuador-easter-lilies

This year we purchased Ecuador Easter lilies.  They were delivered April 8.

The Ecuador lily orders are of 25 stems but each stem has three or four buds… so the order delivers about 100 flowers!  There are so many I had to put them in three vases where they were still going strong when I took these shots April 16 none days after delivery.

ecuador-floral-information

They are wonderful, fresh and they last!

Spme of the Easter lilies (though some have passed) are still looking good as I write this on April 23, 15 days after delivery.

Here is one of the three Ecuador floral arrangements six days after delivery, at the entrance to our home…

ecuador-floral-information

another on our fire place mantle and…

ecuador-floral-information

the third Ecuador lily arrangement in our dining area.  The aromas were intoxicating!

Even three Ecuador lily arrangements left the vases crowded.  I could have filled five or six vases.

ecuador-floral-information

Wonderful and beautiful.

ecuador-floral-information

We asked our flower supplier if he could deliver Ecuador Mother’s Day lilies and he wrote:  The price for lilies is $68 per box.  Each box has 25 oriental lilies.  These are the bigger Easter lilies. We have pinks, pink bicolors and whites.

As with fresh Ecuador roses, we have added $19 to the price so 25 Ecuador Easter lilies is $87.

We will donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order. Just as we do with Ecuador roses…  we lose a couple dollars on each purchase.

You can see why we are happy to donate this at Ecuador rose thanks.

You can order Ecuador Mother’s Lilies here.

Fedex will deliver them directly to you in the USA from Ecuador.  We regret that due to customs difficulties. Fedex will not deliver them in Canada.

Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable lilies, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.

I will forward your order to Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will first email you to make sure you get the color choice you like best and coordinate your delivery time.

If you do not respond to the plantation to indicate a color choice and time, the flower growers will send the best available color combination for the first possible delivery.

As mentioned this is not a deal that helps my pocketbook. I am paying $60 to deliver these roses to you. I donate $20 to the charity. I pay my credit card discount. At the price we charge I am down two or three dollars for each 50 roses. That’s okay…the cause is worthy and Merri and I will be much richer in the heart.

We cannot accept  Ecuador Mother’s Day lily orders after 12 noon Tuesday April 2,2009.  Delivery will be May 5, 2009.

Ecuador Floral Information


Here is information about Ecuador floral opportunities… plus an Ecuador floral idea from this picture…

ecuador-floral-information

Merri and I love flowers. Right now we are filling the house with our mountain spring flowers like these.

ecuador-floral-information

Yet we supplement our North Carolina flowers with Ecuador floral arrangements like these Ecuador lilies.

ecuador-floral-information

Ecuador floral opportunity is one reason we love Ecuador. When we are there, we can have dozens of fresh roses every week.

What would a floral arrangement of 50 long stem roses delivered to your door, cost in the US?   A lot?

Not so much if they are Ecuador floral arrangements. This is why Merri and I regularly have Ecuador roses or lilies fedexed to us from Ecuador.

They are wonderful, fresh and they last!

Take for example our latest order of Ecuador lilies.  They were delivered April 8.

I screwed up.   Our arrival was delayed until April 11, so Fedex left them sitting in our green house in freezing weather were they stayed for at least a day and a half.  It was freezing… yet these fresh Ecuador lilies survived and thrived.

The Ecuador lily orders are of 25 stems but each stem has three or four buds… so the order delivers about 100 flowers!  There are so many I had to put them in three vases where they are still going strong.

By Easter they looked great.  Here is one of the three Ecuador floral arrangements on Easter Sunday six days after delivery, at the entrance to our home…

the third Ecuador floral arrangement in our dining area.  The aromas were intoxicating!

Even three floral arrangements left the vases crowded.  I could have filled five or six vases.

By April 16, the flowers were still looking great… nine days after delivery.

ecuador-floral-information

Wonderful and beautiful.

ecuador-floral-information

I do not stop enjoying my Ecuador floral arrangements after they are tired either.  I dry most of my rose bouquets once they are tired.  This floral bouquet is drying in our kitchen now.

ecuador-floral-information

Here are my last two Ecuador rose orders… one in our kitchen.

ecuador-floral-information

These Ecuador roses had brilliant colors and the dried bouquet remains colorful.

Another arrangement on our fireplace mantle was of of lighter shades and  is more subtle…

though still beautiful.

Ecuador Floral Information.

Being on the equator, Ecuador flower farms have an ideal environment for roses and other flowers.  The high elevation provides proximity to the sun, but cool nights. These are perfect growing conditions for long, straight roses.

Ecuador’s cut-flower industry supplies roughly one-third of America’s roses. A third of Ecuador’s yearly production is exported to the U.S. for Valentine’s Day.   Over 95% of Ecuador’s flower exports enter the U.S. duty-free under a U.S. trade program for Andean countries.  Other than oil, flowers are the largest recipients of Andean trade benefits.

There is Ecuador floral opportunity because over the past two years more than 33% of America’s florists have shut down.

As large retailers increased the quantity and lowered the price of poor quality flowers,  outlets for high quality flowers have suffered.

Even before the economic downturn US traditional florists were in a continuing negative trend due to this downgradng of the market.  There was increased channel chaos as the remaining companies tried to find ways to cgain a larger share of a shrinking pie.  Some importers who normally sold solely through the traditional channel started selling to the mass market.  Some wholesalers began direct from farms and bypassing importers, even selling directly to consumers.

See how this creates opprtunity at Ecuador flower income.
