Summer is a time for lazy days and sultry nights, a season of simple pleasures. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, summer doesn’t always live up to that idyllic image. In today’s fast lane world of fax machines, Internet and instant expectations, summer can quickly dissolve into a time of crazy days, paltry nights and complex complications! That is, if you let it. Take a stand - stop and smell the roses, lilies, daisies and other summer flowers. Re-capture that lazy hazy summertime spirit by surrounding yourself with summer’s most evocative treats! Sometimes it’s the simplest things that set the mood: bare feet, ripe melons, sprinklers, orange and purple sunsets, crisp sheets, cool drinks topped with mint and -- most definitely -- sumptuous summer flowers. After cantaloupes, seasonal flowers are certainly summer’s most abundant, affordable treat.
Live a little, join the smart shoppers who scoop up bunches of fun summer flowers periodically to celebrate the season. It makes sense - summer is exactly when "summer flowers" are most abundant, most available and affordable, being at the peak of their natural bloom season. It's a good time to try out something new now and then: dahlias, daisies, anemones, roses, snapdragons, gladioli, alliums, zinnias, yarrow, asters, larkspurs, sunflowers, and especially lilies!
