This month brings us the celebration of Sweetest Day, observed on the third Saturday of October each year. This philanthropic day was created by Herbert Birch Kingston in 1922 as a means of distributing a bit of happiness to the downtrodden during the Great Depression.

Self Care Practice Through Plants

Did you know that caring for something besides yourself actually increases your ability to listen and show empathy? Studies have shown that taking care of houseplants can help you learn to be attentive to the needs of others, even when they can’t say what they need. By caring for a plant of your own, you are actually taking care of yourself as well and learning to care for those around you. If you’ve never owned plants before, start with something simple and low-maintenance. The Naples-based Marco Island Florist suggests giving plants as gifts, both to yourself and a friend, as another means of self-care.

Maintaining Family Traditions Through Flowers

The relationship between a child and a grandparent is truly unique. Kids thrive by learning from a different generation than their own and having the experience of learning about your child’s child is like none other.

Telling about the importance of the flowers you choose could be a new memory all its own.
