It’s almost June and Summer has just begun. But still chilly here and still need long sleeve shirts. Strange. Summer seems to come a bit later than usual, but soon we will dive into the hot and dry summer season. Even though I’m kind of  a winter lover, “Summer” definitely makes people excited. Lots of outdoor activities feeling the vibrant sunlight.

For me, one of the fun summer activities is enjoying Succulents. Of course, they are year-round plants, but I love them more and also they look more lovely in the summertime. They literally come in all shapes and sizes. Fleshy, skinny, round, oval, big, tiny.. They look all different, but all of them are very hardy. If I’d say roses are like a beautiful woman who put on flawless makeup and expensive perfume, succulents are like a woman in comfortable yet stylish outfit with no makeup on. That’s the very beauty of succulents. They always make me smile and relaxed.

It’s their season, it’s Summertime.

Here are some Floral Arrangements, you might be interested in taking a look at! For the arrangement below we used Parrot Tulips as our main flower. We paired it with some lime green Viburnums for accents. The parrot tulip is not average looking flower, and the color is very different as well, which attracts the attention of anyone. We were very pleased with the finished look for this arrangement as were many of our customers! We’re going to continue making arrangements with parrot tulips.

For the arrangement below we wanted to try something a little different from the average everyday looking arrangements. We used Purple Vanda Orchids, and Flax Leaves.

The vase is round shaped with a different type of opening, which gives this arrangement a very modern look. we put some stones and water to complete the look.
