The natural world is nothing if not spectacular. Not only are the singular components of nature amazing and fascinating, but the synergy showcased by our ecosystem is something quite incredible. During the summer months, the interconnected lives of flowers, bees, butterflies - and us - are easy to see. After all, flowers require that butterflies and bees pollinate. And human beings rely on that pollination in many ways for our food supply. The decline of the bee population worldwide is something that will affect us all - therefore, cultivating a garden that is not only beautiful but that support bees and butterflies in their pollination duties is something to strive for. The floral experts at The Flower Bucket would like to take this opportunity to share some methods that you can use to grow a purposeful garden that is as good for the ecosystem as it is for the beauty of your yard.

Mother's Day in the United States had a rocky road on the way to becoming one of our most celebrated holidays. A woman named Anna Jarvis petitioned the U.S. Congress for several years to get them to adopt her idea and institute a national holiday, and she was finally successful in 1908. However, several decades later she had a change of heart. The very same Ms. Jarvis petitioned Congress to remove the holiday from the calendar, lamenting that people were not celebrating the day in the way she intended. Of course, she was unsuccessful and we've been honoring Mom ever since.
Although Mom deserves accolades every day of the year, Mother's Day affords us a special opportunity to convey all of the love and respect that we feel, The floral designers at The Flower Bucket have created a Mother's Day floral collection featuring arrangements suitable for every mom, no matter her personal style.
