I grew up outside of Springfield and moved to Chicago 18 years ago. I discovered A New Leaf approx 4 years ago when visiting my family and was taken with their beautiful creative arrangements. I always order for my Mom for Mother's Day, Get Well and Birthday. My mom says the flowers always arrive fresh and beautiful. My sister and father have confirmed this when I've inquired. I would most definitely recommend A New Leaf for fresh flowers arranged in a fresh way.
