February – cold, wet and usually miserable time of the year. Did you know that in February we have “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day” (first Saturday of the month) – not a brilliant idea if it’s -10C outside, “Kite Flying Day” (8th of February) – excuse me! Are all the Summer days already booked up?! And the best one – “Don’t Cry over Spilled Milk Day” (11th of February) – is in recognition of everyone who spills a little bit of milk every now and then 🙂 It’s a day to be optimistic, think positive, look on the bright side, and to find something good in everything that happens. I do like this day! From now one I’m going to celebrate it!
And then there is 14th of February – St. Valentine’s Day – you love it or hate it! But why not – why not to make it the LOVE day – let’s celebrate love! It’s so amazing to see an older gent coming to our shop and asking for a bunch of flowers for his beloved wife – she probably doesn’t even remember that it’s Valentines Day – but what a surprise when she opens the door and will see her husband for 45 years standing with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and big red heart balloon – isn’t it sweet…
So why be anti-Valentines day? I do understand that the cost of flowers increase on this day and you get frustrated at having to pay more than usual. Unfortunately because of high demand, flower growers put their prices up – so it affects us – the florists. But we will still do everything possible to make them beautiful and affordable! And why not support your local florist at least once a year.
So please spread the Love and be Happy!!!!
