Our Bouquet of the Month naming competition shared via Instagram and Facebook this week resulted in several entries sent directly to us. The winning name, Free Spirit, suits the bouquet perfectly! She’s a beauty, with bright flowers thoughtfully curated into a unique flower arrangement. In addition to her vibrancy, we are fond of her because all the flowers are grown in the United States. It’s one of the ways we practice environmental stewardship in our Golden, Colorado flower shop. While we’re not always able to source fabulous flowers closer to home, we can this month. After all, we’re in the middle of the U.S. flower growing season! Did you know that the list of cut flowers grown in America now includes more than 100 species? We’ve taken advantage of the selection by showcasing some unusual textures and types in Free Spirit, including red and yellow straw flower, funky solidago, burgundy safari sunset, smiling killian daisies, fluffy celosia, elegant stock, and yellow gladiola. She’s got stature and warmth, thanks to her red hues. Join our monthly flower subscription to have Free Spirit and other floral centerpieces delivered to you. She can also be ordered online as a one-time arrangement for local flower delivery or for pick up from our Middlemist studio.
