Thinking of You

Thinking of You!

Thinking of You- It’s 2:00 pm on a workday. You’re at work typing away and your mind strays away to a certain someone. You haven’t been able to get a text or a call out to them, but your mind keeps running on them.  

So, what do you do?  Do you call and say “Hey! What’s going on? My mind has been on you recently.”Well, you can but that would look even better with a beautiful, vibrant bouquet of beautifully arranged flowers! What else could say how much you’re thinking of someone other than a beautiful bunch of vibrant flowers?

Why is buying flowers a gesture of “thinking of someone?”

This is a beautiful gesture when thinking of someone as flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face.  Researchers have linked receiving flowers with a long-lasting positive mood.  If you’ve been thinking of that person, especially if they’re a long-time friend or relative chances are they might have been going through a bit of a rough time somewhere in their life. 

So, whether it be a vase full of fresh roses, lilies, daisies, or any other favorites, these are sure to bring a smile to your person that they can’t get rid of too easily!

Can I get someone a plant?

Oh absolutely! Plants are a great way to give longevity to that relationship with that special someone.  With it already potted, you have roots already growing within the plant and with the proper amount of care, you can continue to cultivate more plants over time! Along with learning to propagate your plant you can learn more about your plant over time

and slowly start to create your own little collection of green friends!

What’s better, a plant or a bunch of flowers?

This depends more on the type of person you are sending this to as well as how long you would like them to keep the flowers.  If you would like them to have some beautiful blooms for just about a week or two then the bunch of flowers freshly cut at the stem would be a perfect addition to their house or workplace.  However, if you want something a little more long-lasting and greener as opposed to floral, then a potted plant would be the way to go. 

This also depends on how much time you think that person will have to take care of the plant.  If they’re a rather busy person and always on the go traveling, a bouquet might be the best option as they will get to enjoy it for that time being, and then when they’re on the go, they will always have that memory of it as well as some beautiful pictures they took of those flowers!

New baby

Celebrating a New baby and Motherhood

Today’s the day!  Someone just had a baby! And you can’t wait to tell that person how excited you are for them! But what do you send them? You can’t just send a note or a letter?!
So do you send balloons? Do you send a teddy bear? You could but then there’s the pressure of did you send the right teddy bear. How about a nice congratulatory cake? But what if they don’t want cake? So much to contemplate! So, what do you do? You send a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers to their home!

Why send flowers?

Flowers are always such a sentimental touch during this time. The parents are tired after the delivery of the baby and now their life has changed forever, for the better.  They have just strengthened the bond behind their relationship by now adding an addition to their family.  Those flowers will give the parents that little boost of encouragement and joy to start every day refreshed and with a smile on their faces as they become accustomed to parenthood.

What do you write on the card?

There’s always a lot of pressure to write the perfect thing.  You want to always remember that the parents need your support and love during this time so any encouraging words will be appreciated.  Some examples are down below:

“Congratulations! We can’t wait to see the little one!”

“I’m so excited for you guys to embark on this lifelong journey together!”

“You guys must be glowing right now, and I just want you to know that you always have us.   We’re only a text or a call away.  We love you! “

So now the big question. What type of flowers to send?

You can base this on either the baby’s gender or what the new mom likes. If it’s a baby girl, any flowers with a shade of pastel, mainly pinks and purples would be ideal. 
For a baby boy, you could have shades of blue or yellow or a combination of the two. Typical flowers with these color patterns are carnations, lilies, tulips, or roses.  
If you know what type of flowers the new mom likes, you can incorporate those as well or even send another small bunch to her during this time to show how much you care for her.

Having a baby is always an exciting time in someone’s life so why not celebrate it with the sweet sentiment of beautifully arranged flowers.

Flowers can reduce stress, anxiety, and pain. So that will be a great idea to offer fresh flowers to the newly become mom and cheer the moment.

Flower Spotlight: Roses

It is impossible to mistake roses, with their velvet petals infinitely curled against each other in hypnotizing symmetry, and their stems full of thorns, ready to protect their delicate flowers by pricking any prying fingers.

The British adopted the rose as their national flower, after a civil war lasting three decades, ended with a decisive victory on the battlefield, and the union by the marriage of the two families that had long been rivals. It is not surprising that over its long history, the rose has come to symbolize love, beauty, and courage.

What are the different kinds of roses?

There are over 300 roses, and over 10,000, that is, varieties are grown for specific desirable traits. Broadly they can be classified into three categories:

  • Old Garden Roses: Sometimes referred to as “antique” or “historic” roses for having been around before 1867. Old garden roses bloom only once with intense fragrance. They know for being resistant to pests and adverse weather.
  • Wild Rose: As their name suggests, these roses have undergone little hybridization or cross-breeding. They can easily be identifie by their five-petaled flowers that are usually pink.
  • Modern Garden Roses: These kinds of roses bloom more often, some even continuously during the summer months, and they usually have larger flowers. The only downside is that their scent isn’t as strong, and they are more vulnerable to diseases.

What are the best conditions to grow roses?

Roses have a reputation for being difficult to grow, but that's not always the case. The Modern Garden Rose varieties have been bred to facilitate their cultivation, but it's still a good idea to plant them in their ideal conditions.

Replanting the dormant rose shrub is the most common way of getting them into your garden. Give them a good 2 - 4 ft of space between plants if you’re considering having more than one. They should ideally plant early spring in slightly acidic, fertile, and well-drained soil. Rose need at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. If that's not possible, make sure they at least get the first rays of the morning - these will evaporate the dawn dew and protect them from any nasty fungal diseases.

When they bloom in the summer, they can do so in just about any kind of color:

red, pink, white, yellow, orange, even purple, and even mysterious black!

Why are rose grown?

The beautiful, scented foliage of roses makes them a must-have in any garden, but the flower is a lot more versatile than it seems. After the rose flowers have been pollinated, they slowly start to ripen into rose hips, which are eaten raw in many countries for their high vitamin-C content. In the Middle East, rose water and oil frequently use as an ingredient in several desserts;

 and let's not forget that many perfumes and candles use it too.

Flower Spotlight: Lilies

What are lilies?

Lilies are perennial herbaceous plants that can reach heights of up to 6 ft. Lilies produce large fragrant flowers of or more than one color with brushstroke or spot patterns. In the wild, lilies can be found mostly in the temperate woodlands and mountainous regions of Eurasia, with some species adapting to the warmer climates of India, south-east Asia, and the Philippines. Many common flowers include “lilye” in their name even though they are not realities (like the water lily). To consider a “true lilye” it must belong to the genus Lilium. With over 90 different species, there are so many to choose from!

What kinds of lilies exist?

Lilies have been bred throughout history into several hybrids with distinct characteristics:

  • Asiatic hybrids: Produce unscented, outward-facing flowers.
  • Martagon hybrids: The flowers are curved strongly outwards into a shape commonly known as “Turkish-cap”
  • Euro-Caucasian hybrids
  • American hybrids: The plants are generally very tall, and the flowers sometimes bloom in clumps.
  • Longiflorum hybrids: These varieties are grown commercially to be used as flower crops, meaning you will find them in bouquets but not in gardens.
  • Trumpet liliese: The flowers have long petals and they are facing slightly downwards. These produce a strong scent, usually in the evenings.
  • lilies: The plant tends to be tall, with large, fragrant, and upward-facing flowers.


How can I grow lilies?

While mostly considered a garden flower, lilies can also be grown indoors. If that is the case, keep in mind that some hybrids of lilie are toxic to cats, producing kidney failure even from the pollen brushing against their fur. Double-check with a local florist or veterinarian if the variety you have chosen is safe for them.

Lilies usually propagate by dividing the while the plant is dormant. In soil with a pH of about 6.5, they should plant in the fall at a depth of 2 to 3 times the size of the bulb. During the growing season, water them frequently, especially if rain has been scarce. Expect them to bloom once a year, between late spring and early summer.

When should I offer?

Because they are naturally present in large parts of the Old World, lilies are important to many cultures. The Easter lilye is particularly special for Christians during the spring. For the French, it is the national flower, after long having been a symbol of the country’s royalty. Signifying purity and innocence, white liliese often offer in funerals, symbolizing the return to innocence of the soul of the deceased.
