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 »

Did You Know? George Washington, along with his wife Martha, was a master gardener.

Memorial Day was originally observed in 1866, the year after the end of the Civil War. Although it was known as Decoration Day for many years, in 1971, Memorial Day was made an official national holiday. On Monday, May 29, the custom continues, and Americans have an opportunity to show respect and gratitude to fallen heroes - as well as to show compassion to family members who may still grieve the loss . Boyd's Flowers is privileged and honored to help you to show your gratitude by delivering beautiful Memorial Day flowers and arrangements.
There is a Difference: Although the two days share patriotism, parades, and decorations of red, white, and blue - Memorial and Veteran's Day serve different purposes. While Veteran's Day offers recognition to all who served in the military, including those still alive. Memorial Day is set aside to remember those who perished in service to their country.
