Super Ladies Deserve Super Flowers

It’s an important month for the women in our lives—or as we here at The Flower Bucket like to call them, “super ladies.” After all, we’ve got Mother’s Day, National Nurses Day, National Teachers Day and the entire week of May 6 through 12 officially devoted to appreciating the latter two. In these female dominated fields, we’ve got mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, friends, colleagues, neighbors. In other words, the women we honor in May are wearing many hats, educating, inspiring, protecting and nurturing the rest of us. They do their best to empower us, and we should definitely do that right back. One way to honor the super ladies in our lives is to give them flowers. Lots and lots of flowers.
