Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in spring. The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century.
With Mother’s Day falling in the month of May, what better way to celebrate mom than with fresh blooms of flowers. Our greenhouse is bursting with gorgeous hanging baskets, flowing container gardens and plentiful perennials. Just like the uniqueness of each petal on every flower, every mom is unique and special in her own way as well! We all love our “Moms” – for so many different reasons and I put that in quotes because that doesn’t mean the woman you call mom had to give birth to you! She’s a person who wears many different hats and performs many different jobs and we couldn’t imagine our lives without her.
On this Mother’s Day, we will be delivery near and far!! Sending expressions of love and beauty everywhere! I took an order the other day for someone who was sending beautiful container gardens to her mom in Oakdale, MN – her mother in law in Cottage Grove, MN and her daughter who lives right here in Forest Lake – what a fun order to take and to listen to her stories of why she picked out each container for each individual! To all you wonderful moms out there – “HAPPY EARLY MOTHER’S DAY!”
Here is a fun chart to take a look at and see if there is a flower that represents your mom! Most of the meanings are modern, some are not, but the giving of an arrangement, or even a single rose, will always mean what is in the heart of the giver.
