Ecuador Thanksgiving Roses

It is time to order Thanksgiving fresh Ecuador roses and bouquets.

Merri and I receive fresh Ecuador roses on a regular basis.


By the morning they are fully opened and incredible!


We love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty. When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred, we grabbed the chance.

I originally wrote about the roses, made a special offer and sold over 15,000 roses that raised $6,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling and university for gifted indigenous children and to buy a InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children that the foundation provides.

Enjoy 50 or 100 fresh cut roses to your home at really low rates and help create employment in Ecuador in the process.

I regret that UPS cannot deliver the roses in Canada or elsewhere outside the USA.

UPS will deliver them to you within four days of being cut in Ecuador. Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the UPS driver and let me know. Our flower supplier will give you a full refund.

To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with UPS when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.

During Thanksgiving the flower growers can only send farm choice color combinations.

Unless otherwise arranged, and subject to weather permitting, UPS will deliver your roses to you or your recipient on Tuesday or Wednesday November 26 or 27.


All photos on this page are delivered Ecuador roses to our home.

There is exquisite beauty and pure luxury with 50 (or 100) roses compared to a dozen.

I love roses. Having 50 allows me to make my bouquets purely out of roses. 50 roses allows me really incredible bouquets.


This is just one bouquet of 12 fresh Ecuador roses. 38 (or 88) roses to go! I put out a few on their own. 36 or 86 more roses to go!

The roses arrive…


tightly packed… 25 per bundle. You get one one bundle for 25 roses, two bundles for 50 and four bundles for 100 Ecuador roses.

Each bundle will be a different color.

Then they open…


full…colorful and…


radiant. This is another 12 roses sitting on my chess table (that I photographed a week after I put them out). This leaves me 24 (or 74) more roses to go for a spectacular two dozen rose bouquet something like this.


Even after the flowers lose some of their oomph I reorganize them and use as table settings.


Here are roses that had drooped after a couple of weeks so I put them in water in a shallow bowl and enjoyed them for another week.

As the roses age, I also hang them up to…


dry and make bouquets of dried roses and feathers.


For the holidays, fresh Ecuador roses… delivered by UPS to your home… offer beauty, longevity and great value.

Order any of these arrangements before Noon, Friday November 21, 2014 and receive them on the Tuesday or Wednesday before Thanksgiving, November 25 or 26, 2104.

Spend Thanksgiving in Ecuador and learn Spanish

Learn Spanish in Manta Ecuador.


Manta’s Beach.

The Super Thinking + Spanish course in Manta is November 24-25-26, 2014.

Manta expats host a Thanksgiving Turkey event at a very good locale on the beach restaurant. The Manta course is a great way to enjoy the holiday and a place to learn from fellow Americans, Canadians and Europeans about Ecuador.

John Fischer

John Fischer will teach Super Thinking + Spanish in Manta Ecuador.

John Fisher is a Canadian who wrote his University of Toronto entrance exams in Spanish.

Five years later he graduated with honors, class valedictorian, bachelor of architecture and was the first recipient of the American Standard Traveling scholarship to Europe where he studied housing in London, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki for his thesis project.

During these travels he was struck by the ease with which European young people switched from one language to another in group conversations—unlike their U.S. and Canadian counterparts. He determined to continue his Spanish learning efforts.

After working in his architectural practice he took to sailing and worked and lived in the Turks & Caicos and the Dominican Republic and returned to Toronto at the onset of a real estate boom.

Success led to having a sailboat in Taiwan that he sailed between Canada and the Caribbean for four years.

These trips led John to Naples, Florida where he lived for 20 years, designing and building homes in Collier County. John was a hands-on, on the site builder and with predominantly Spanish speaking crews so his Spanish street slang improved dramatically.

He had traveled to England, France, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Greece, The United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Bora Bora, Nuku Hiva, Rarotonga, French Polynesia, Costa Rica and Panama but he chose to immigrate to Ecuador in 2008. He spent time exploring the coast and an offer to engage in a large construction project drew him to Manta.

He also accepted a role as director of schools for Ecuador, representing SCW Canada, a charitable funding organization dedicated to building schools in needy locations worldwide. Finding an increased need to communicate in Spanish, he attended the Super Thinking + 3-Day Spanish course and then became qualified to teach this course.

John will teach his first Super Thinking + Spanish course in Manta this November 24-25-26, 2014. This course fits nicely between the weekend and Thanksgiving.

Super Thinking improves everything in your life. This is not a gimmick or a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov. Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system. She has over the last 40 years organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better with a lot of joy.

Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language in the world. There are many benefits to speaking Spanish because chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.
