The month of November brings many joyous gifts and days to celebrate. Daylight savings time’s exit has given us an extra hour of sleep and brighter, lighter mornings. Veteran’s Day offers us an opportunity to express our appreciation, and honor our Veterans. Thanksgiving is a day to share our gratitude and give thanks for our many blessings.

November is like a bridge, offering us passage into the season ahead, but not first without pausing and reflecting into the waters below. As the landscape sheds its autumnal overcoat, and bares its stark and barren beauty, we linger before winter’s slumber. We take stock of our lives, and the people we care for. We don’t go unwittingly into the season ahead without first glancing back, and appreciating all that we have, and all that we are.  Won’t you join me?

We are proud to live, work, and serve the communities of Villa Park, Elmhurst, Oakbrook, Oakbrook Terrace, Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Wood Dale, Itasca, and more!

Plant of the Week


Molly’s White Hellebore

Lovely creamy-white, greenish flowers bloom amongst leathery-green foliage in late Winter through early-mid Spring.  Prefers full shade to partial shade, and moist, well-drained soil.  Grows 12-18″ tall and 12-18″ wide.

“That soft autumnal time…
The woodland foliage now
Is gathered by the wild November blast…”
~John Howard Bryant
