Florascope for Virgo


 

VirgoVirgo ~ August 23 – September 23

With a penchant for detail, Virgos are often known for their meticulous and diligent personalities. The modest and sometimes shy Virgo, is wise and witty, with a keen sense of what makes others tick. Virgos love to plan and are organized perfectionists.

Virgo’s colors are light blue, navy and white and their birthstone is the sapphire.

Virgos love romantic flowers of pinks and creamy whites.

Blue is Virgo’s favorite color and a bouquet of delphinium or blue hydrangea will appeal to this Earth sign’s heart. Include daisies and asters and you’ll be a hit with the down to earth, reserved Virgo.

Order flowers for your favorite Virgo from Eden Florist.

We Specialize in DOGHOUSE REPAIRS


"We Specialize in DOGHOUSE REPAIRS - doghouse logoEver since the dawn of time, people (mostly men) have been in the doghouse.  Imagine how much trouble Adam would have been in if he had not eaten that apple!  He might have had to spend the night (or several) in the dogasaurus cave! But that’s another story….

For as long as I can remember, people (mostly men) have been coming into my florist and saying “Help, I’m in the doghouse.”  In fact, I can remember the very first time a customer said that to me, I replied, “No problem, we specialize in doghouse repairs.”

And so began what would one day become a national holiday. Now Get out of the Doghouse DAy is not really a celebration.  I mean how could it be?  Its more of an observance. Because most of the time people (mostly men) are looking for something to “smooth things over.”  While flowers can certainly help get back in the intended’s good graces, it is easier to be forgiven when the offender is remorseful, sincere and he (or she) ads a dash of romance.

Now, I’m not suggesting you BEG Forgiveness (unless the situation warrants it), I am suggesting that bringing home a bouquet and being open to talking it out will give you a better chance of “getting out of the doghouse.”

In 2002 my staff and I conducted a survey and a majority of women said that although they preferred to talk about their troubles, they also thought flowers were a romantic way to ask for forgiveness. For men the answer was much simpler. They prefer make-up sex. Maybe adding a petals around the house and on the bed would satisfy both!

So next time you are in the doghouse think of flowers as a start… flowers suggest romance and let’s face it, romance is what most people (mostly women) really want.

So next time you are in the doghouse, bring home a bouquet and a willingness to talk things out and you could find yourself out of the doghouse and back in the Main House.

And remember, Eden Florist specializes in “doghouse repairs.”

As an advocacy effort, the campaign is timed to coincide with America’s Independence Day on July 4th, providing florists, retailers, wholesalers and flower farmers a patriotic opportunity to promote American grown flowers.

Spring Equinox, The First Day of Spring


"Spring Equinox"

Spring

Spring makes the world a happy place
You see a smile on every face.
Flowers come out and birds arrive,
Oh, isn’t it grand to be alive?

Spring is one of the four seasons of temperate zones. Astronomically, it begins with the spring equinox (begins today – March 20 in the Northern Hemisphere, and around September 23 in the Southern Hemisphere), and ends with the summer solstice (around June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21 in the Southern Hemisphere). In meteorology, it is by convention instead counted as the whole months of March, April, and May in the Northern Hemisphere and September, October, and November in the Southern Hemisphere. However, in the Irish Calendar it is counted as the whole months of February, March and April.

Spring, Almost

The sunshine gleams so bright and warm,
The sky is blue and clear.
I run outdoors without a coat,
And spring is almost here.

Then before I know it,
Small clouds have blown together,
Till the sun just can’t get through them,
And again, it’s mitten weather.

April

April is a rainbow month,
Of sudden springtime showers.
Bright with golden daffodils
and lots of pretty flowers
.

Suggestions would be restaurants, movies, musical artists, meals, television shows, books, and so one.

Be sure to list categories that would have relevance to your relationship – for example if you knew one of their favorite musical groups was coming to town, you could purchase tickets for an upcoming date.vAfter you finish your lists, compare notes and see if you have any favorites in common.
