This Christmas

We have some Dawgs that need a good home for Christmas! These lil' pups could be the star of their own flower bed. Surround them with black violas or pansies for a real UGA feel.

Have you tried Stock? These cool season beauties smell so good. Put them by a sunny entrance or near a mail box !!!!
Oh, and don't let my creative photography scare you. They are not really 10 feet tall. They peak at about 15 or 18 inches.

Those of you that are true Hester & Zipperer enthusiasts know that our building was once the home of a Kentucky Fried Chicken. Who knew that the Colonel had his own Christmas album?

It made me wonder, what might a Hester & Zipperer album have on it? Post your song suggestions in the comment box. Here are a few to get you started:

Six Sheets To The Wind - Cigar Store Indians
I Don't Care If You Love Me -The Mavericks
Stand - R.E.M.
Cool For Cats - Squeeze
Girls Just Want To Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

Hester & Zipperer Grieves The Passing Of Feline Friend

We are sad to report that our dear Mr. B has passed away. He was found Tuesday, amongst the Encore Azaleas, looking as if he'd just decided to take a nap. Although deeply upset over our loss, we were thankful that he appeared not to have suffered any trauma.

He was around thirteen-years-old, and had spent the greater part of his life with Hester & Zipperer employees and customers. Always the gentleman, Mister B made friends with all, even those who might not offer affection to a cat. He was a little shy around children, but , if scooped up unexpectedly, would never put up a fight.

We are thankful that he was a part of our nursery and lives for such a long time, and hope that he has found acres of catnip thriving through an eternal Spring.
