March's Birth Flower: The Dapper Daffodil

Photo via http://ow.ly/Z4tSG

The daffodil is the official flower of March. I can't think of a better choice, can you? Daffodils are one of my favorites because they are hardy blooms with a delicate appearance. I walked outside my home the other day to see a light covering of snow on a patch of daffodils near a tree. I had to admire them for pushing to get the spring season under way! So this week, I thought I'd dig up some facts on this tenacious flower. Enjoy!

The Best Flowers for People With Allergies

Until I became a florist, I assumed that anyone would love to receive a bouquet of beautiful flowers; then, I learned that for people with allergies, sending certain flowers is like sending sickness. For an allergy-sufferer, the wrong flowers can trigger sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, a runny nose, and sinus symptoms. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, you are probably quite familiar with these unpleasant effects. To understand what plants to avoid, it is good to know the science behind pollen allergies.

Plants can be monoecious, which means they have male and female flowers on the same plant, or they can be dioecious, which means the plants are strictly male or strictly female. It is the male plants and male flowers that are responsible for allergies. The male parts are the filament and the anther; together, they are referred to as the stamen. The anther is what produces the pollen that causes us so many problems. Both monoecious and dioecious plants depend on wind to move the pollen from the male to the female plant, and when the pollen becomes airborne, it causes allergies.

7 Great Flowers to Give Your Graduate

Flowers have been given to mark all great events in life, so it is no surprise that they should be given for graduations. This rite of passage is a time of great celebration, and the right flowers add to the ambiance of the day. Perhaps you are wondering how to incorporate flowers into graduation day other than giving a bouquet, or perhaps you need help in choosing the right flowers. Don't worry: I've got you covered - there is something for everyone and every budget. If you are sentimental, don't forget that many flowers can be pressed and dried; a dried flower from graduation would look great in a scrapbook or frame along with some graduation pictures.

The Best Flowers To Say Thanks

Pink Hydrangea

Giving flowers has been a way to communicate emotions since ancient times. Rome, Egypt, Greece, and China - all of these great civilizations gave flowers as gifts. The Turks originally assigned a special meaning to each flower, and these meanings spread throughout the world. There is nothing like a bouquet of flowers to say thank you, but which flowers should you choose? I'm sure that any flower would be welcomed by the recipient, but some are even more special than others for saying thanks.

Sweet Peas

Sweet peas say "thank you for a lovely time" in the language of flowers. These little beauties smell just as sweet as they look and can be used as filler for a bouquet or used by themselves in a large bunch. They are a perfect gift to thank someone for taking you out to lunch or to the ballet.

Flowers that mean Love and Romance

Last week I wrote about the most popular flowers for Valentine's Day; I figure that now is a good time to continue on the topic of love and discuss some lesser known romantic flowers and flower meanings. If you recall, roses, tulips, carnations, daisies, and orchids were the stars presented last week. Indeed these flowers have very romantic meanings, but they aren't the only ones as you shall soon find out. Break out of the ordinary by giving some of these meaningful and love-infused beauties.

Lilac

Purple lilacs represent the beginning of love or a first love, and are a perfect gift for new couples. The recipient of lilacs is sure to recall this bouquet given early on in the relationship every time she smells lilacs, and every spring while lilac shrubs are in bloom. A lilac shrub would also be a great gift for those with the land to plant it on.

Daisies: The Perfect Flowers for Any Occasion

Daisy BouquetSay it with flowers, even with no occasion at all.  Daisies are the most perfect flowers for a quick pick-me-up gift for neighbors, friends, family and special people. The bloom is a variety of wildflower coming from the aster family that has long been bringing sunshine in recipients’ lives. It helps that the flower closely resembles the shape of the sun.

History has it that daisies symbolize innocence. Beautiful maidens used to wear them in their silky hair to express liberty from guilt and sin. These flowers also represent loyal love. Long before roses became popular among hopeless romantics, daisies have been delivered to show devotion and intense affection.
