Did you know that bees are one of our greatest assets in solving the worldwide hunger problem? Not only do they create honey, known for its many medicinal and culinary values, but through their pollination techniques, bees contribute to the growth of 90% of the world’s food sources. It’s safe to say that without bees, we would starve. Unfortunately, the bee population is dwindling- but we can help in very simple ways. Bees need water and shade to work effectively, and they love flowers with bright blooms and simple petals. Boyd’s Flowers recommends adapting a few of these features to your backyard, garden or porch for a beautiful way to watch nature at its best. Read More about Farm-Fresh Flowers & Their Bees

It's summertime, and seasonal flowers are in full bloom everywhere you look. You can bring the beauty of the outdoors in, and display beautiful arrangements throughout your home, with the help of Boyd’s Flowers. We have some great ideas for summer decorating, so shop our collection of summer floral designs or talk to one of our design experts. One of our favorite summer flowers to design with is the hydrangea - these showy blooms are as bright and colorful as they are versatile.
Because they bloom from early spring to late autumn, hydrangea are an excellent summer flower. They are most often seen in shades of blue and pink, and interestingly enough, those shades are determined by the Ph levels of the soil, not by the variety of plant. Different hybrids and lighting variations can also result in white and green varieties, although these are not nearly as common worldwide. Read More about Beautiful Summer Hydrangea
