One of the largest nurseries in northwest Florida, Floral Tree Gardens surrounds its customers with a land-grown sea of lush foliage and vibrant blooms. Row upon row of the outdoor gardens are painted with yellow daisies and purple cornflowers, and loquat and avocado trees cast shadows over shoppers. Plant purchases may be complemented with garden accents such as clay pots and metal butterflies, which, unlike their living counterparts, follow orders to sit and stay. Floral Tree Gardens' stock changes with the seasons; its facility brims with pumpkins in the fall and poinsettias in the winter. It also stocks fauna at an onsite pond, where visitors can fish for bass or pygmy submarines.
"You have a dying cell phone in your hand right now as you read this." That line from the Battery on the Go website gets straight to the point of the issue all cell phone owners deal with at one time or another. The company's staff of admitted gadget lovers doesn't ever want their clients to be in a position where they can't navigate an adventure, capture a moment, or contact a friend because their smartphone died. As such, their signature product, the PowerBar, is a portable battery charger that can power an iPhone 5 from one to eleven times on a single charge, depending on the model. The lightweight, aluminum design can also charge tablets and its USB capabilities allow it to be charged by computers or USB-compatible wall plugs.

When they’re not perfecting their pies, the chefs keep busy slicing up meats for crunchy hero sandwiches and whipping up meatballs for spaghetti dinners. As the chefs bustle around the kitchen, customers await their meals in the bright dining room over pitchers of draft beers and bottles of sparkling champagne.
