quad cities: Isabel Bloom is Blooming all over Davenport, Iowa! - 07/19/09 08:06 PM

So, after some prodding by Mike, I decided to finally write about Davenport, Iowa's Famous Isabel Bloom!

Davenport, Iowa is home to the Isabel Bloom legacy!  Click Here to learn more about the history of Isabel Bloom.  The pieces above are called "Flower Picks".
