It seems like it was only yesterday but Christmas is long gone and Valentines Day is ONLY 10 days away !
If you want to stay out of the proverbial doghouse then thought is required and I do not mean a stop at Walmart on your way home on the 14th. Just remember the last time you showed up empty- handed or with the rose in a bottle and reese cup from QT. I am a chocolate nut myself but I am telling you flowers have the power. Your local FLORIST has some ideal choices for your special someone and they don’t have to be red roses.
The perfect plant for the gardener may be the cyclamen. The leaves are heart-shaped, variegated and glossy — just right for Valentine’s Day. But there is more. You simply cannot beat the cyclamen for the number of flowers it produces and its long period of bloom. It comes in the traditional holiday colors of red and white, but the shades of pink and purple will leave you mesmerized, as well. Rest assured you’ll find this plant looking good a lot longer than a vase of cut roses.
The Reiger begonia is another great choice as a gift. The compact, bush shaped plant produces attractive foliage and a large number of blooms. The bright colorful flowers average two inches across and appear over a long season blooming for months.
Whatever you choose ………… CHOOSE YOUR LOCAL FLORIST AND SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY ! WHEN CHOOSING YOUR LOCAL FLORIST EVEN IF IT IS FOR YOUR AUNT LOIS NORTH EDISON NORTH DAKOTA ; THEY WILL MAKE SURE IT IS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH YOU JUST DO NOT GET WITH 1800FLOWERS-IN-A-BOX DELIVERY.

Or a local bakery, candy shop or take them out to a locally owned, not chain, restaurant. Locally owned plant nurseries are also a great option…..
Buying local is always my first choice!
