Celebrating the Family During July with Special Days

Our closest family members are often the ones we think of the most but there may be those that we don’t see as often that are also special and add to our lives. Often, these other family members are farther away, so special days have been created as a way to let them know you are thinking of them. Plus, it gives you an opportunity to give them that extra gift throughout the year on top of their birthday so they know just how much you love them. Here are some special family days in July: Cousin’s Day is July 24th Aunt and Uncle Day is July 26th Father-in-Law Day is July 31st These special family members are often mentors and people you enjoy spending time with because they are family but don’t often the same relationship as your immediate family members.

Exotic Orchid Plants

Orchids are considered one of the most beautiful flowers in the world and illustrate that a flower doesn’t have to be big to create a sublime, dramatic effect. This blog provides some background on exotic orchid plants as well as introduces you to our collection of exotic orchid plants. Types of Orchids The name for the family of orchids is Orchidaceae and its members include 30,000 different species and over 600 genera, which regularly increases as flower farmers cross breed various orchids to make even more stunning orchids. Orchids have served as a symbol for royalty and wealth because they were so rare and, as such, very expensive. Now, they are more accessible and have grown in popularity, becoming the second most popular flower after poinsettias.

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose…” – William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet While birthdays, anniversaries, and special holidays are always great for sending floral arrangements, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to let someone know you are thinking of them. We often hear the exhortation, “Stop and smell the roses.” Generally thought of as an expression of love, roses perhaps first come to mind when mention is made of meaningful flowers. But did you know that flowers and floral arrangements have been used for centuries to send coded messages, allowing individuals to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken? This floriography, or language of flowers, can convey romance, sympathy, or affection to someone special in your life. Roses themselves have many different meanings. Red roses symbolize passion and love while white roses convey meanings of purity and innocence. Below you’ll find a list of common recognizable flowers and their meanings.
