Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner!  It's a Monday this year, so spoil your sweetie by sending flowers for her to enjoy all week long!

Think beyond the dozen red roses... dendrodium orchids, tulips, lilies, larkspur- the options abound! If you order before February 11th we will also give you 10% off your order!

Just in case you're wondering- Valentine's Day is not the "Hallmark Holiday" it's made out to be, according to Wikipedia:
Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day,[1][2][3] is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions.[1][3] The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 500 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.[4]

Happy Valentine's Day Lovelies!

FYI- I HATE hearts!!!  Really, despise them! ;) I do however love flowers and chocolates and sparkly things... just in case my husband is reading this...
