Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and it’s the biggest day of the year for flower sales across the country. I know that you’ve always been told to buy rose on Valentine’s Day. Roses are supposed to symbolize love. They are supposed to say I love you. I want you. I need you. You think you would be perceived as a sucky Valentine if you didn’t send a big bouquet of red roses. Right? WRONG.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying run out to the candy store and forgo flowers. I am a florist right? No- I am definitely a strong proponent of buying flowers on Valentine’s Day. In fact, it’s been proven that flowers make people happy, reduce stress and create calming feelings. Sounds like the perfect gift!
What I AM saying is that roses might not be the way to go.
Since roses aren’t grown locally in the mid-atlantic states, how about locally grown tulips instead? They come in beautiful shades of red, pink and white. Locally grown tulips say I love you! I care about the environment! I support local Maryland growers and communities! They say YOU Rock as a Valentine!
Don’t you want to rock on Valentine’s Day? Contact Local Color Flowers to find out how you can order locally grown tulips and other Spring cut flowers for your loved one this year.
