October is Adopt a Shelter Pet Month, and we want to take a moment to talk about one of our favorite rescue organizations: All Paws Rescue. It’s no secret to any of our regular customers or friends that we love animals at Lilygrass! Alicia brings her rescued dogs to the store every day and has rescue cats at home. Also, she has been fostering kittens, cats and a few dogs - (a few dogs) because she foster-failed on the last one :) for All Paws Rescue since November 2016, and she loves working with them.
It’s officially fall! Time to break out the sweaters, cozy up next to a fire with some marshmallows, enjoy some apple cider, and celebrate all things fall. And that includes fall floral arrangements! Oranges, browns, yellows, reds, and deep purples add such warmth and beauty to any space. It’s a great way to bring the natural beauty of the outdoors this time of year inside to enjoy all day.
Try one of these great fall floral arrangements to brighten your home, office or send one to a friend to brighten their day.
Okay, we have a confession to make. Lilygrass's owner, Alicia, likes plants of all kinds, but she kills plants a lot. She loves them too much (over-waters) then she says "oh no" and doesn't water them to let them dry out (under waters). She can't find the happy water medium zone. So, she is ban from watering plants in the store. Now, that is funny!
When you want a bright, cheerful flower to make someone smile, you can’t go wrong with a sunflower. While they naturally bloom outside in summer, many varieties continue to bloom into fall as well. And their beautiful yellow petals and rich brown centers certainly make them a great addition to fall floral bouquets.
Sunflowers are phototropic, which means they grow toward the light. This quality plus their bright yellow color and round shape like the sun led to their name. They’re part of the genus Helianthus, which comes from the Greek words helios meaning sun and anthos meaning flower.
Everybody loves getting presents on their birthday, right? We might be a little biased, but we think flowers are always a great birthday gift! Here are a few ideas to say happy birthday to the special people in your life.
Send flowers to their home or office
