Flowers for Friendship Day


Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of every August. It shouldn’t matter that this holiday was created by a famous card company. Friends are worth celebrating. Friends are the people in your life that make life better. You can share the good, the bad and the ugly times together.

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
