With Spring just around the corner, the warmer weather is calling us outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and our outdoor surroundings. A great way to liven up your outdoor living space is to plant flowers. A fun activity for all ages and with a little TLC (and patience), you will be rewarded with colourful blossoms and floral aromas, sure to brighten anyone’s day.
Flowers are not only significant in wedding ceremonies, anniversaries or for special occasions, did you know they also provide health benefits? Strengthening our immune system for one, but they also help to improve our mood and boost energy levels too. We would like to celebrate these beautiful marvels of nature by honouring “Plant a Flower Day” this March 12th and welcome the feeling of spring inside and out.
