First News Fall 2009

Bloom Town

   Rose Petal Floral and Gifts is the newest flower shop in town since opening last March at 134 South First Street in Raton's Historic District. Owners Lynda and John Brown have stocked the shop with flowers and latex or mylar balloons for all occasions: birthdays, get well, wedding, baby, anniversaries, sympathy, or "just because" and even wedding rentals such as an arch and candelabras. There are plants, gifts, and a large assortment of paintings by local artist, Jim Mullings. The Brown's favorites are portraits of Shirley Temple and Sara Jessica Parker. Also included is a young farm girl on a John Deere tractor, churches, farms, and landscapes of mountains and rivers. Another local artist, Peggy Parsons, displays her hand-made mugs and light huts. She created her ceramic huts in the 1990's incorporating designs of horses, carousels, flowers, and even the Statue of Liberty, to keep her coffee mug or drink at her desk.

   Treats are also available such as snacks, sodas and ice cream. "Over the summer we served frito pies and hot dogs to the boy scouts who traveled to and from Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron. It was such a big success with the boy scouts and locals that we are offering them through the winter on Tuesdays and Thursdays." Call or visit the store for all your floral needs, gifts for any occasion, or even to pick up a snack. Also, check out the store's website and do a wire order to anyone in the country.

Business hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
