Valentine's Day

Treat your sweetie to one of these wonderful Valentine's Day treats - from decadent desserts to romantic Southern getaways to fresh-picked flower arrangements.

Camellia Windowsill | Common camellia (Camellia japonica) is the queen of the Southern winter garden, with big, luscious blooms. Camellia’s heavy flowers like a little support and work best floating in shallow bowls or displayed in short, heavy vases or pitchers. |

Potomac Chocolate | Working from his home workshop, Ben Rasmussen produces about 500 artisan chocolate bars a week.
