Well, here we are past mid July. It’s amazing how fast time goes by, isn’t it? July usually bring us some quieter days as many of our customers are away on vacation, thus having no need for flowers. Also, many have wonderful gardens, and take advantage of them by creating their own fresh arrangements using their finest home grown beauties. So the days here sometimes feel a little longer this time of year. It’s a good thing people are still getting married and having big celebrations requiring our expertise, they do keep us hopping.
You know we all expect flowers at major events right? Those big monumental ones like weddings, bar mitzvahs, birthdays, births, and such. What about those smaller events in life that can be just as important. With kids, there are so many, obviously school related things like reading their first whole sentence, getting past that math problem, getting an A, actually doing homework without being asked (lol ok, maybe these don’t work in the summer). Then how about riding their bike without the training wheels, swimming a length of the pool, and helping with the chores around the house (without being asked), hitting that baseball and almost making it to first base. So many wondrous things we sometimes overlook, that maybe deserves a little something special.
Even as we get older, yes believe it or not, we all like to be recognized for something that we’ve achieved, no matter the age, no matter how simple the achievement. Don’t you think an impromptu rose, or little plant, or small arrangement delivered to that person for having done something, achieved something, would make them feel all the more special? It doesn’t take much, it doesn’t have to be huge, but it does enrich the lives of those who give them, and for those who receive them. Simple isn’t it?
So off you go, make that call, order your “you did great” flowers and spread the love. Enjoy the summer, stay cool, stay happy, and be good to each other.
