The Many Faces of the Chrysanthemum

The November birth flower is the Chrysanthemum. Like birthstones, birth flowers represent the month in which someone was born. They are often associated with superstitious beliefs and generally the meaning of these stones and, in this case flowers, is associated with one’s personality. At Allen’s Flowers and Plants, we believe that the Chrysanthemum flower would make a delightful gift to anyone with a November birthday but in taking its meaning to heart, it would serve others just as well, too. The flower is beautiful, being first discovered in a gold color but is also known to grow in white and red. The Origin of the Chrysanthemum The flower was first used in China well over a few hundred years ago. It was used in culinary for mixed greens and other salad like dishes as well as made into a tea. It has even been made into a type of rice wine as the Chrysanthemum flower is known for its sweet taste and aroma. Unlike other sweet things though, the Chrysanthemum flower is also known for its effectiveness as a strong insect repellant as well as killer. The Color and Meaning Throughout history, we have associated colors with meanings. For example,

Shake Their Hand: Celebrating Veteran’s Day

Veteran’s Day is upon us and we believe it is ever important to give our thanks to America’s servicemen and women for their endless sacrifice. Allen’s Flowers and Plants believe that no Veteran should go unloved ever and to know that so many are suffering on this side of the states pains us greatly. No man or woman should be alone after serving for this country for when they did from that moment on and to eternity they became our family. Every one of us owes them for what they have done, keeping freedom free and protecting our friends and families. To every veteran we say, thank you for your service to our nation and her people. A History of the Holiday Veterans Day was first celebrated at the end of World War 1 on the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of the year 1918. Like Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, Veterans Day is celebrated to commemorate and decorate our military to thank them for their time, service and sacrifice in keeping this nation and her values alive. We share the belief of others that not a single veteran should ever feel alone after serving

A Lighthearted Election: It’s Time to Vote and Agree to Disagree

Is it fantasy to believe that a lighthearted presidential election could be at all possible? Perhaps you might think so, but it wasn’t that long ago it seems that people went around having a little more respect for others and their beliefs. Before, it seemed to us that, while we all might have in the end sided with one side or another, most of the time we stood in the middle supporting various parts of each political party. It seems impossible for one side to just go and get everything right. So, yes it is safe to say that a more lighthearted Election Day is very much an achievable effort. We All Have Views It is important to remember that every one of us has our own views and is entitled to our own opinions on all matters and on goings in this country and its politics. Just because someone thinks differently or votes for one party over another, it does not mean they are the ‘enemy’; they are a person too and, just like you, they have their reasons. As we close in on Election Day, chances are you are going to continue to see more and more people
