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.

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.

You can order Ecuador Mother’s Day Lilies here.

Easter & Ecuador


Ecuador’s Easter weekends are special..a family time of deep reverence and remembrance. No Easter bunnies, eggs or chocolate here!

More about Easter in Ecuador in a moment… first welcome to spring, this…

Ecuador-easter

beautiful time of nature’s resurrection.

We have been out harvesting nature’s early gifts.

Ecuador-easter

We are back at our North Carolina farm and I took this morning to walk and enjoy  this wonderful, rich season…when new life springs from apparent death.

Ecuador-easter

Our most recent snow just melted and the creek is full.

Ecuador-easter

The falls roaring.

Ecuador-easter

I am not sure who loves the walks the most, me… or Ma.

Ecuador-easter

watching life emerge.

Ecuador-easter

During this economic downturn… the message of Easter and spring is even more important to take to heart.   There is no death… just change.  Each ending holds the seeds of a new… and better beginning.

We are also enjoying our Easter lilies from Ecuador.  Here are the first blooms I have set out at the farm entrance.

Ecuador-easter

There were so many blooms that I had to put them into two vases. Here are the rest of  the blooms coming on our dining room table.

Ecuador-easter

Yet just like all endings… we gain from the past as well… so our Christmas roses, which we dried, are still providing beauty in the farmhouse as well.

Merri, I and the staff at Meson de las Flores, send our best wishes for a happy holiday and great joy and prosperity this spring.

Ecuador-easter

Easter in Ecuador is a wonderful family time when everyone gathers to eat Fanesca, an Ecuador Easter tradition. This is a very rich soup, made from squash and twelve different grains, (representing the disciples of Jesus) and salt cod since red meat is not eaten this day. Fanesca is a delicious Lenten chowder prepared to celebrate the unity of Ecuador (each grain represents a different part of the country) and to end the Lenten Fast. There are sliced boiled eggs on top and slices of rich ripe avocado also. Here is our chef, Santiago, with his Ecuadorian Easter fanesca.

His Easter fanesca is outstanding!

The view from Meson at Easter is of Jesus commanding the sunrise and…

Everyone participates,  boys…

Recognizing that for centuries the community has gathered on this day to celebrate the victory of this season in dance.

Ecuador Flowers-Lilies & More


When you buy Ecuador flowers, lilies or roses from Land of the Sun… you are doing much… much more than filling your home with sweet scents, beauty and love.

Here is why.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

A recent message Ecuador rose thanks explained how we use the money from the Ecuador flower orders (lilies and roses) to help Ecuador’s poor.  That message outlined how a small village near Cotacachi needed improvements to their school.   They wanted to do the work. They just needed materials.

So we began.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

Yesterday they had a minga (a village work party).

We provided the cement mixer.  Plus…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

sand… gravel…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

cement and…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies stone for this first improvement.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies This retaining wall will support a higher wall for security to keep the books and computers safe.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

The village supplied their own tools… plus…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

their labor and their hearts.  Everyone helped.  The men mixed cement and moved it in wheel barrows. The women carried the stone… some in their bare feet.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

Old and …

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

young.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

Ecuador flower sales (lilies and roses) are helping this girl with a college scholarship as well.

The people all work together to move…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

one …

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

stone at a time. They…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

fill the bags…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

with stone…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

to carry…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

up the hill…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

for the future of their kids.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

They work because they want their energy in this improvement.

When we originally came to see this project, the people of this village were clear. They did not want money.  They wanted materials so they could do the work.

This is the way we like to donate.  Ecuador flowers (lilies and roses) bring love and beauty into your home… the best flowers in the world at the lowest price you will find… delivered in the freshest fastest way.  This service helps bring energy to these people who in turn add their effort to make the future better…  for their children. Yours and mine as well.

We also brought fruit… because this high in the mountains they cannot afford it.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

They are so grateful that…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

no matter…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

how…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

much we bring…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

we always wish…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

we had brought more.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

This village may have a small bank account, but…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

they have large hearts and high energy.

They thank you for your flower orders and send their gratefulness in every petal you enjoy.

The next step is to improve the water supply.  We’ll work on this and keep you informed.

We donate $20 for each order to help Ecuador’s poor.

We also offer Ecuador roses that are truly stunning!

ecuador-rose-news

You can order 50 fresh premium Ecuador roses at a lower price from our site than anywhere I have been able to find.

I checked the internet.

1800flowers offers 36 Martha Stewart Roses for $259.00.

Flowerbud.com offers 50 premium roses for $135.

48longstems.com offers 50 roses for only $69…plus shipping… $22.94
or a total 91.94.

www.overstock.com offers 50 roses for $94.99.

So $79 for 50 fresh cut, premium roses, including Fedex overnight delivery, is a great price. Even better, you can order 100 premium roses for only $119 at Fresh Ecuador Roses.

We donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order.

We are now accepting Easter rose orders and Ecuador Easter lily orders.

Ecuador Rose News


There is good and bad Ecuador rose news.

The really good news is that Ecuador roses are truly stunning!

ecuador-rose-news

In a minute I’ll show you some great Ecuador property for sale.  First, the Ecuador rose news.

We have roses everywhere in our hotel. In the court yard where we dine.

ecuador-rose-news

In the rooms.

ecuador-rose-news

In the hallways.

ecuador-rose-news

Even in…

ecuador-rose-news

our food displays.

ecuador-rose-news

Ecuador roses are very reasonably priced.  The freight to the US is the big cost and here comes the bad news.

Two days ago, Roberto Ribadeneira, our flower supplier for Ecuador roses, sent me this note.

Gary I had a meeting with Fedex in which we talked about a freight change and they explained that small boxes of 50 roses are as expensive as big ones. They are raising minimum freight to that of larger boxes.  This changes our final prices a lot. It is the same cost for a box of 50 roses as one that holds 100 roses.  The new prices will be as follow:  50 roses $60.00.  100 roses $90.00 delivered.

This is the bad news about Ecuador roses.

More good news is we’ll keep our policy of charging just $19 more than our cost and donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor.

Even better news is that you can still order 50 fresh premium Ecuador roses for at a lower  price than anywhere else.

I checked the internet.

1800flowers offers 36 Martha Stewart Roses for $259.00.

Flowerbud.com offers 50 premium roses for $135.

48longstems.com offers 50 roses for only $69…plus shipping… $22.94
or a total 91.94.

www.overstock.com offers 50 roses for $94.99.

So $79 for 50 fresh cut, premium roses, including Fedex overnight delivery, is a great price. Even better, you can order 100 premium roses for only $119 at Fresh Ecuador Roses.

This is still a great value.

We are now accepting Easter rose orders and Ecuador Easter lily orders.

On the subject of value, here is a good value Ecuador property for sale.

Lee Carper, one of Cotacachi’s residents, (Lee has been here about a year)  has been helping delegates find find low end sales and rentals.

ecuador-fresh-roses

Lee found this house near our hotel that has some interesting potential… and nice views.  Meson de las Flores is at the Cathedral… so this shot from the roof shows…

ecuador-fresh-roses how close it is.  Nice views from the ground floor as well.

ecuador-fresh-roses

What makes this house interesting is that it is on two floors… each has a kitchen, dining and…

ecuador-fresh-roses

living areas…plus

ecuador-fresh-roses

Plus bedrooms so it could be converted easily into two apartments.

ecuador-fresh-roses

Yet the asking price is only $62,000. With Ecuador property prices rising, due to increased cost of building material, this represents good value.

Until next message, may your life be filled with flowers and good value!

Ecuador Easter Lilies


Fresh Ecuador Easter lilies are now available to be delivered to your home in the USA.

Over the past years, hundreds of Gary Scott readers have had fresh Ecuador roses delivered direct from Ecuador to their home by Fedex. For this Easter holiday you can have the option of Ecuador lilies or fresh Ecuador roses.

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

We asked our flower supplier if he could deliver Ecuador Easter lilies and he wrote:  The price for lilies is $65 per box.  Each box has 25 oriental lilies.  These are the bigger Easter lilies. We have pinks, pink bicolors and whites.

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 Easter 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 $79 price 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 Easter lily orders after 12 noon Tuesday April 2,2009.  Delivery will be April 7, 2009.
