Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without a gorgeous bouquet for your Significant Other, Breast
but what about that pesky card? It can be difficult to come up with the perfect words. Knowing what to say or how to say it is not always the easiest of tasks. If you’re struggling to find your voice, ask your local florist for a suggestion. Or you could scroll down and read 5 Valentine’s Day card poems to help you send the right message!

Valentine’s Day Card Poems
1. Cobalt blue, your sparkling eyes
have set my heart a racin’.
Ne’er will be seen our love’s demise,
‘Tis forever that I’m chasin’.

2. This rose of dark and crimson hue
is lovely, stark and sweet,
And yet it pales compared to you
unable to compete.

3. My love for you like yours for me
is vibrant, strong and pure.
These chocolates may not last the week,
but our affection will endure

4. No flower, though the blooms are lovely,
can with you compare.
neither the rose, the iris nor the lily,
can hold to you a prayer.

5. Tonight we’ll celebrate our love,
we’ll dine and dip while dancing.
A passionate kiss or variation thereof,
will find our passion advancing.
Card messages are not always easy, but hopefully these poems have helped or at least inspired you to find the exact words to let her know how you feel. Have some original poems of your own you’d like to contribute? Leave them in the Comments below!

February is the winter month that works so hard to shake the chill and celebrate love. Maybe you have noticed the endless seas of red and pink at local stores or watched as people find little ways to enjoy themselves and help others during a harsh winter. With your help, Sildenafil
we can spread the warmth and bring a smile. Here are the reasons you should be sending flowers this month:

#1. Valentine’s Day – Feb 14th
As if you couldn’t see this one coming from a mile away! Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest flower-sending holidays of the entire year. That’s because beautiful fresh-cut flowers are the very best way to say what’s on your mind! Whether it is  “I love you!” or “I’m trying my best for you.” or simply “You are special!” – flowers can mean anything you want them to mean. And that special person who got flowers? They won’t forget it.

#2. American Heart Month
The CDC made the natural choice to bring about heart health awareness during the very month we associate with love. Most people know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women but the surprising news is heart disease is preventable and controllable. This is information worth sharing. If you know a loved with who is at risk, seek
sending red-themed flowers for Amercian Heart Month can be a gentle reminder that they can take control of their heart health.

#3. Winter Olympic Games – Feb 7th – 23rd
It is an exciting time in the world of sports as the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia begins! Arrangements featuring the classic blue, yellow, black, green, and red can be custom designed for some 5 ring inspiration. This type of flower creation would be a thoughtful and exciting gift for your avid Olympic follower or, best of all, a bit of encouragement for a young athlete with big dreams. Ask your local florist to get in the spirit of the games today!

#4. Random Acts of Kindness Day – Feb. 17th
Join in a growing worldwide holiday that challenges you to do something kind to a friend or stranger for no reason at all. This is a perfect time to give a cheerful bouquet to that barista that goes above and beyond or your elderly neighbor who doesn’t get out much. By doing something kind for someone else, they are likely to act out of kindness as well. So a small heart-warming deed can perpetuate.

#5. February. Birthdays
Anyone with a birthday in February needs a bright pretty arrangement to celebrate the warmth and love of their special day! Early spring flowers are just coming in stock and your florist will have breathtaking options that will say “Happy Birthday” better than anything else. The birth flower for February is the violet which symbolizes faithfulness, wisdom and hope.

Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without a gorgeous bouquet for your Significant Other, Breast

If you’re struggling to find your voice, ask your local florist for a suggestion. Or you could scroll down and read 5 Valentine’s Day card poems to help you send the right message!

Valentine’s Day Card Poems
1. Cobalt blue, your sparkling eyes
have set my heart a racin’.
Ne’er will be seen our love’s demise,
‘Tis forever that I’m chasin’.

2. This rose of dark and crimson hue
is lovely, stark and sweet,
And yet it pales compared to you
unable to compete.

3. My love for you like yours for me
is vibrant, strong and pure.
These chocolates may not last the week,
but our affection will endure

4. No flower, though the blooms are lovely,
can with you compare.
neither the rose, the iris nor the lily,
can hold to you a prayer.

5. Tonight we’ll celebrate our love,
we’ll dine and dip while dancing.
A passionate kiss or variation thereof,
will find our passion advancing.
Card messages are not always easy, but hopefully these poems have helped or at least inspired you to find the exact words to let her know how you feel. Have some original poems of your own you’d like to contribute? Leave them in the Comments below!

Dear Flower Expert, herbal

I got this picture from Google unlabeled. I am not sure if it is real or photoshopped! If it is photoshopped what flower do you believe it’s modeled after? This is the only picture of this flower.

Tamika ,
This plant is a type of Sempervivum, and that is exactly how they look though the coloring in this photo may be slightly enhanced. I think this specific plant is Sempervvivum cultivar, otherwise known as ‘Lilac Time,’ which has a green center that fans out to a purplish color ending with rosy tips.
Hope this information helps!

have set my heart a racin’.

‘Tis forever that I’m chasin’.

2. This rose of dark and crimson hue
is lovely, stark and sweet,
And yet it pales compared to you

is vibrant, strong and pure.
These chocolates may not last the week,

A passionate kiss or variation thereof,
will find our passion advancing.

#1. Valentine’s Day – Feb 14th

They won’t forget it.

#2. American Heart Month
The CDC made the natural choice to bring about heart health awareness during the very month we associate with love.

If you know a loved with who is at risk, seek

By doing something kind for someone else, they are likely to act out of kindness as well. So a small heart-warming deed can perpetuate.

#5. February. Birthdays

This plant is a type of Sempervivum, and that is exactly how they look though the coloring in this photo may be slightly enhanced. I think this specific plant is Sempervvivum cultivar, otherwise known as ‘Lilac Time,’ which has a green center that fans out to a purplish color ending with rosy tips.
Hope this information helps!

Valentine’s Day is Feb. 14th and you should buy flowers.

Whether we’re talking about weddings or holidays, stuff
flowers sometimes get a bad rap simply because they don’t “last forever”.

I personally think we have enough stuff in our lives that will last forever and the fact that flowers die should not make them worthless.

I hear slogans that refer to “gifts that won’t wilt” and it feels like flowers get picked on (pardon the flower pun). Food gets consumed & wine gets drunk…and perhaps so do you!, chocolates get devoured, but flowers light up your life for a few days reminding you of the thoughtful friend or lover who brought them to you and THEN, they are compostable.

Flowers say I love you without the need for perfect words or too much planning.

You can instantly be transformed from thoughtless to thoughtful with a bouquet in hand. In my experience, flowers are a perfect gift and are usually very much appreciated. I should know…I have delivered flowers for years and people are always happy to see me! I like to think it is my winning smile, but the warm welcomes I receive are attributed to the fresh flowers in my arms.

While I took a different route with my business than the traditional flower shop, it is where I grew my roots so I have a level of respect & sentimentality for the importance of the retail florist. As is true with any business that caters to you and your Valentine, florists will have higher prices around the holiday, but keep in mind that your prix fixe dinner menu probably follows the same trend.

Florists raise their prices not simply in an effort to gouge you, but because their costs also increase.

A single rose will cost your florist nearly twice as much the week before Valentine’s Day than they will the rest of the year. That is why they double the cost of their roses to the customer.

Not only are the roses more expensive during this time, but because of the high volume of cutting that is done in anticipation of the Valentine’s rush they are not as easy to get from flower growers during the upcoming weeks which keeps the price a bit higher than normal (that whole supply and demand thing!), but you will find that the price for you, the customer, will promptly return to pre-holiday pricing. The additional staff and overtime hours required to fill all the special orders from design to delivery is also a big factor in the cost of doing business on V-day.

If you want to get the most for your money, then skip the “dozen roses delivered” and choose flowers from the cooler for a fresh cut bouquet—the most economical way to buy flowers! Because a wrapped bouquet is not considered an “arrangement” and does not require a designer’s time to arrange it you will get more flowers per dollar as compared to a vase arrangement (which also includes the cost of the vase, of course). I always think your best value is to select what looks fresh and if you are unsure, ask for help to get the best results.

Keep it real. Keep it local. Keep it fresh.

Small flower shops often struggle to keep their doors open and in an economy where grocery stores sell stems for less than florists pay for their product (yes, they charge less than wholesale in some cases!) and the internet satisfies all of our shopping needs, the brick and mortar flower shop could use a little back-up this year. So if you haven’t already you should order flowers for delivery to your sweetheart or swing by a local shop to pick up a fresh bouquet to deliver in person.

If you know what you want, try to order it in advance and schedule a time for pick-up so the florist is sure to have it ready for you. You don’t have to spend $100…or even $50. Pick up a bunch of Dutch tulips or gerbera daisies or go for a half dozen roses if you are an old-school romantic. Whatever you choose you are sure to warm someone’s heart.

Flower Care Tips:

Fresh bouquets will require the recipient to trim at least ½” from the bottom of the stems with a sharp knife or garden clipper—not a scissor—before arranging in a vessel filled ¾ of the way with clean water.
No foliage should fall below the water line and the water should be changed daily or every other day at which time the flowers should also receive a fresh cut.
If the temperature outside is 34o F or less you should be sure that the flowers are wrapped in plastic bag or heavy paper to protect them from freezing…something that the grocery store often will not do properly for you!
If you will have the flowers out-of-water for 2 hours or more you should ask your florist to put water tubes on the end of each stem…and Yes, you will still have to re-cut them before you put them in water!
So make someone’s day and buy flowers this Valentine’s Day!

Pick up a bunch of Dutch tulips or gerbera daisies or go for a half dozen roses if you are an old-school romantic. Whatever you choose you are sure to warm someone’s heart.

Flower Care Tips:

Fresh bouquets will require the recipient to trim at least ½” from the bottom of the stems with a sharp knife or garden clipper—not a scissor—before arranging in a vessel filled ¾ of the way with clean water.
No foliage should fall below the water line and the water should be changed daily or every other day at which time the flowers should also receive a fresh cut.
If the temperature outside is 34o F or less you should be sure that the flowers are wrapped in plastic bag or heavy paper to protect them from freezing…something that the grocery store often will not do properly for you!
If you will have the flowers out-of-water for 2 hours or more you should ask your florist to put water tubes on the end of each stem…and Yes, you will still have to re-cut them before you put them in water!
So make someone’s day and buy flowers this Valentine’s Day!

have set my heart a racin’.
Ne’er will be seen our love’s demise,
‘Tis forever that I’m chasin’.

2. This rose of dark and crimson hue
is lovely, stark and sweet,
And yet it pales compared to you
unable to compete.

3. My love for you like yours for me
is vibrant, strong and pure.
These chocolates may not last the week,
but our affection will endure

can hold to you a prayer.

we’ll dine and dip while dancing.
A passionate kiss or variation thereof,
will find our passion advancing.

Dear Flower Expert, herbal

I got this picture from Google unlabeled. I am not sure if it is real or photoshopped! If it is photoshopped what flower do you believe it’s modeled after? This is the only picture of this flower.

This plant is a type of Sempervivum, and that is exactly how they look though the coloring in this photo may be slightly enhanced. I think this specific plant is Sempervvivum cultivar, otherwise known as ‘Lilac Time,’ which has a green center that fans out to a purplish color ending with rosy tips.
Hope this information helps!

Valentine’s Day is Feb. 14th and you should buy flowers.

Whether we’re talking about weddings or holidays, stuff
flowers sometimes get a bad rap simply because they don’t “last forever”.

I personally think we have enough stuff in our lives that will last forever and the fact that flowers die should not make them worthless.

I hear slogans that refer to “gifts that won’t wilt” and it feels like flowers get picked on (pardon the flower pun). Food gets consumed & wine gets drunk…and perhaps so do you!, chocolates get devoured, but flowers light up your life for a few days reminding you of the thoughtful friend or lover who brought them to you and THEN, they are compostable.

Flowers say I love you without the need for perfect words or too much planning.

You can instantly be transformed from thoughtless to thoughtful with a bouquet in hand. In my experience, flowers are a perfect gift and are usually very much appreciated. I should know…I have delivered flowers for years and people are always happy to see me! I like to think it is my winning smile, but the warm welcomes I receive are attributed to the fresh flowers in my arms.

While I took a different route with my business than the traditional flower shop, it is where I grew my roots so I have a level of respect & sentimentality for the importance of the retail florist. As is true with any business that caters to you and your Valentine, florists will have higher prices around the holiday, but keep in mind that your prix fixe dinner menu probably follows the same trend.

Florists raise their prices not simply in an effort to gouge you, but because their costs also increase.

A single rose will cost your florist nearly twice as much the week before Valentine’s Day than they will the rest of the year. That is why they double the cost of their roses to the customer.

Not only are the roses more expensive during this time, but because of the high volume of cutting that is done in anticipation of the Valentine’s rush they are not as easy to get from flower growers during the upcoming weeks which keeps the price a bit higher than normal (that whole supply and demand thing!), but you will find that the price for you, the customer, will promptly return to pre-holiday pricing. The additional staff and overtime hours required to fill all the special orders from design to delivery is also a big factor in the cost of doing business on V-day.

If you want to get the most for your money, then skip the “dozen roses delivered” and choose flowers from the cooler for a fresh cut bouquet—the most economical way to buy flowers! Because a wrapped bouquet is not considered an “arrangement” and does not require a designer’s time to arrange it you will get more flowers per dollar as compared to a vase arrangement (which also includes the cost of the vase, of course). I always think your best value is to select what looks fresh and if you are unsure, ask for help to get the best results.

Keep it real. Keep it local. Keep it fresh.

Small flower shops often struggle to keep their doors open and in an economy where grocery stores sell stems for less than florists pay for their product (yes, they charge less than wholesale in some cases!) and the internet satisfies all of our shopping needs, the brick and mortar flower shop could use a little back-up this year. So if you haven’t already you should order flowers for delivery to your sweetheart or swing by a local shop to pick up a fresh bouquet to deliver in person.

If you know what you want, try to order it in advance and schedule a time for pick-up so the florist is sure to have it ready for you. You don’t have to spend $100…or even $50. Pick up a bunch of Dutch tulips or gerbera daisies or go for a half dozen roses if you are an old-school romantic. Whatever you choose you are sure to warm someone’s heart.

Flower Care Tips:

Fresh bouquets will require the recipient to trim at least ½” from the bottom of the stems with a sharp knife or garden clipper—not a scissor—before arranging in a vessel filled ¾ of the way with clean water.
No foliage should fall below the water line and the water should be changed daily or every other day at which time the flowers should also receive a fresh cut.
If the temperature outside is 34o F or less you should be sure that the flowers are wrapped in plastic bag or heavy paper to protect them from freezing…something that the grocery store often will not do properly for you!
If you will have the flowers out-of-water for 2 hours or more you should ask your florist to put water tubes on the end of each stem…and Yes, you will still have to re-cut them before you put them in water!
So make someone’s day and buy flowers this Valentine’s Day!
