I can not believe that it is already Easter! Spring is in the air, and I feel so blessed to see how Fleurenasci has grown in such a short period of time. As you spend time with your family and friends this weekend, remember to enjoy the small things. Smell those flowers and know that every day is truly a gift.
It is so easy to forget what is important when we are moving at a record pace and that is why I enjoy the holidays so. The kids are in the house, family pops ins, and all seems right with the world. I hope you all will also enjoy some of these same things. Thanks for your support, and I hope you and your family have a blessed Easter.
I simply can not believe that Easter is only 10 days away! It’s hard to think about Easter Lilies and spring dresses when it’s in the 30s today in Altanta! But despite the chill in the air, Easter will be here very soon. One of my favorite parts about Easter are the beautiful Easter Lilies!
Every holiday bring with it it’s own traditions and symbols. For Easter we are surrounded by colorful eggs, cute bunnies and the Easter Lily, a flower that stands for innocence, hope and life – the spiritual essence of Easter.
Dating back to Biblical times, the lily is mentioned a great deal in the Bible. Perhaps, one of the most famous Biblical references is in the Sermon on the Mount, when Christ told his listeners: “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin; and yet….. Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
The flower has been called the “white-robed apostles of hope,” as lilies were found growing in the Garden of Gethsemane after Christ’s agony. Accroding to “this website”:<http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/archives/parsons/publications/lily/lily.html, tradition has it that the beautiful white lilies sprung up where drops of Christ’s sweat fell to the ground in his final hours of sorrow and deep distress. Churches continue this tradition at Easter time by banking their alters and surrounding their crosses with masses of Easter Lilies, to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and hope of life everlasting.
No matter what the Easter Lily represents for you, I hope you enjoy it’s beauty during this wonderful season.
How can it possibly be that Easter is so close? Hard to think about spring clothes when the high today is only in the 40s. Well nonetheless, it will be here before we know it. I simply love Easter and all that the holiday means. Often times to celebrate the day we give each other Easter Lilies, Tulips and other vibrantly colored flowers. I hope this year you will think of having Fleurenasci turn those petals into a keepsake you will have for a lifetime. I can not think of a better way to remember this special time of the year than having a necklace or bracelet made out of the flowers that celebrate renewal. It might also be a great time to have those flowers made into beads for our new Aster Add-A-Bead collection, just in time for Mother’s Day in May!
Take time to enjoy your flowers and when they are no more, send them our way! Happy Spring!
