5 Things as Easy to Pick Out as Flowers

Easy to Pick Out as Flowers

Picture this. You’re standing before a tapestry of loud, bursting colors. You’re looking at one bright, confusing blur. Everything smells like the colors pink and green.

It’s your anniversary. What are you supposed to get? Where do you even begin?

Take in a deep breath, count to five, and remember: You’ve done this before. You’re an expert at picking things out of flowers. Just think of all the times you’ve been a successful picker-outer:


A box wrench has a nice grip but is unsuitable in a tight space. An open-ended wrench is quick to use, but too specialized. An adjustable wrench is great for both loosening and tightening, and keeps the stress off the screw.

With flowers, you also want a happy medium. Not too big, not too small, and if you can help it, right about to break open and bloom. Flowers on the peak die sooner, flowers too closed might not bloom in time.

Used Cars

Research helped you figure out if the better deal was that 1998 Mazda Sedan or that 2001 Ford Escort for your teenager. But what helped you talk them down to a reasonable price was the confidence you had walking in.

Trust in yourself when you see that Blowsy ranunculus that reminds you of your wife’s favorite decorative pillow.


You know bad pork when you see it. If you can’t smell the smoker, don’t even dine. Over-saucing is under-professional. Vinegar beats tomato and sugar.

Likewise, you know what fresh flowers look like. You know what they smell and feel like. If you care, you’ll pay attention.

Sports Teams

While others might pull for the Rockets or the Spurs, maybe you’ve always been a die hard Magic fan, good season or bad.

Don’t just hop on the bandwagon. Roses are playing it safe. But if you heard your wife say fifteen times she’s madly in love with Baby’s Breath, maybe it’s time to support the underdog.

A Good Woman

You remember the day you first met her. You remember the day you figured out she was the one. Between that time, you were figuring out what made her the best option. (She was doing the same.)

Some reasons can’t be put into words. A part of you went with your gut (And I don’t mean the stomach). You just knew—in part because you’d been searching for so long.

When it comes to flowers, have faith in yourself. You’ve played this game. With a little help from a professional, you’ll know you made the right choice. You’ve got this.

Start your day with the fresh and beautiful flowers-

Flower Spotlight: Glamorous Gladiolus

Flower Spotlight: Glamorous Gladiolus-

Picture this: you’re in the amphitheater of Rome’s Colosseum in its heyday. Looking up, you see the crowd cheering in an uncontrollable frenzy. After intense battles, you’re the last one standing. Members of the audience throw at you, with all their might, spear-shaped flowers of every color. You collect a few and thrust them into the air in victory. Yours is the right to live another day.

How did gladiolus get their name?

As you might have already guessed, these flowers were gladiolus, more commonly known as “sword lilies” although this vernacular name can be a little misleading. They actually belong to the iris family. They got their name from the Latin gladius, meaning sword. Given their long and imposing shape, and their close ties with history’s fiercest warriors, these perennial flowers symbolize courage, strength, and pride.

Southern and tropical Africa is the native home of the gladiolus, and where the most diversity in the cultivars can be found. Nevertheless, there are varieties that have successfully adapted to the natural terrain of the Mediterranean and of south-east Asia, where they can be found in the wild.

Can gladiolus be kept as garden flowers?

Emerging from their underground corm, gladiola plants produce one to nine non-branched sword-shaped leaves that guard at its center spikes that unilaterally produce gorgeous 3 inch funnel-shaped flowers of varying colors, ranging from white to orange or purple; plain or with special patterns or markings. But don’t be fool by their beauty. These flowers are low maintenance, requiring only a few hours of sunlight, and their soil remains moist during the growing season. They are extremely hardy: some varieties are resistant to rough winters of up to -15 degrees. If you decide to dig up the gladiolus corms just to be on the safe side, do so in the autumn after the leaves have died out, and replant them in the early spring for best results.

The corms produce smaller cormlets over time. Occasionally, divide these clumps while the corm is dormant to keep the plants vigorous. The smaller corms can be plant the following season, but it may take a while for them to reach maturity and start producing flowers.

What about gladiolus as cut-flowers?

They also make impressive cut-flowers for centerpieces or elegant bouquets when paired with dahlias and peonies, but a word of warning: they can be toxic to your dog, cat, or horse companions.
