Flowers and gifts for the Leo in your life

What could flowers and astrology possibly have in common?! Glad you asked! Just as there are flowers to go with each month and each anniversary year, there are flowers commonly associated with zodiac signs as well.

Leos are babies born between July 23 and August 22. They’re confident, strong, loving, and warm. At the same time, they love the spotlight and are generally creative, dominant, and known as the most extroverted of the zodiac signs.

Flower spotlight: Goldenrod (Yellow Solidago)

Yellow solidago, also known as goldenrod, is a perennial herb commonly found in North America, Mexico, and some parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia. The flower consists of radiate blooms, which are tiny yellow florets that clump together at the top of the stem.

It primarily blooms in late summer and can grow over three feet tall. Their nectar attracts bees, flies, wasps, and butterflies and produces a spicy honey that can be fairly harsh both in smell and taste before it fully matures into a milder, more palatable flavor.

card messages

Flowers can be very comforting and serve as a beautiful reminder of a loved one during a time of loss. Sometimes there are no words and only hugs will do. Other times the right words at the right time can bring some comfort.

Here are some suggested messages for those difficult times when it’s hard to find the right words for the card when sending flowers.

Sympathy card messages for the loss of a loved one:


Happy Birthday, America!

Taking time to celebrate our Founding Fathers and the birth of our country is incredibly important. Independence Day is a summertime holiday memorializing the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. On that day, the Continental Congress came together to decree that the thirteen colonies existing in America, at that time, were no longer under the dominion of the British monarchy.
