With some investigation, you will be able to purchase the right plants and flowers to create a patio butterfly garden of your own; or maybe even help the cause of the endangered bee population. The additional of bee-friendly flowers to your front porches or back lanais will prove irresistible to these hard-working insects - and Al's Florist can provide you with what you will need.

Summer is here and life is just a little more relaxed. Lazy evenings with extended daylight afford us the opportunity to gather with family and friends more frequently - and whether a friendly barbecue, casual picnic or sophisticated gourmet dinner, flowers make any occasion feel more special. When you are planning your summer parties, don't forget the small details that will make your time together even more memorable - summer centerpieces and seasonal flowers from Al's Florist are a beautiful way to add color and style to your get-together.
Keep Cool - Fresh cut flowers should have adequate hydration and shade on hot sunny days.
