Holidays Gone

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and well, the holidays are finally over. I say “finally” in a mixed bag of emotion, since I love the family and friends and the time spent together, but at the same time, I also love the peace, quiet, and rest that comes when it’s all done.

Of course, rest rarely lasts long as there’s always work to be done. Still a weekend or so dozing in front of the fireplace won’t hurt anyone. Maybe a long weekend..

This time of year is also when gardeners of every type begin thinking about the spring and what it will bring. Seed catalogs, thoughts of compost, maybe an idea or two to sketch out for a new layout somewhere.. that’s what happens to those with dirt in their nails after the busy months of winter’s holidays are done. We start thinking fondly of worms, absentmindedly turning imaginary soil as we daydream about the coming spring warmth and the flowers it always brings.

Yesterday was one of those days for me. I flipped through a seed catalog, only marginally paying attention to the offerings therein, as I aimlessly considered ways I could change the back patio’s hanging plant-based symmetry. Of course, before long, the greenhouse comes to mind, then…


Well, you get the picture. This time of year is, at least for me, the antsiest time. It’s too early to begin anything in the garden, but just about the right time to order seeds before spring prices begin to emerge. Nurseries and greenhouses obviously have year-round happenings with their growing, but not all of us are involved in that hands-on.

So we daydream and absently till soil that isn’t there instead.

Until next time,

Ken Bolt

There’s nothing better than having beautiful spring flowers to brighten up your environment. As you know, spring is right around the corner and that means beautiful blossoming spring flowers that you can use to give a little color to any room in your home or for your office. Whether you choose to have someone send spring flowers to you or you can simply purchase your own, just having flowers around really changes the atmosphere. There are assortments of beautiful spring flowers that can be used for everything from centerpieces to bridal bouquets. Take the time out to use nature’s beautiful spring flowers to liven up your personal space.

Spring Flowers Add to the Interior Design of a Space

One of the best uses for spring flowers is to accentuate the interior design of a space. There are numerous ways that you can make your personal space a bit more comfortable. If you’re getting tired of living and working in a bland space, why not take some time to jazz it up a little bit. While people usually do go through the process of renovating a room or office space with new paint and furniture, sometimes the little details count the most. Little things like scented candles and vases are highly recommended for creating a more lived in environment. You can make the vases even more special by using spring flowers to complete the look. An extra vase or two always comes in handy because you never know when someone’s going to send spring flowers to you, a family member or a coworker. In many ways, flowers are used as a means of adding to the interior design of a particular space. For example, there are some designers that use double vases in order to create symmetry. To further accentuate the vases, beautiful flowers are added to it. Also, restaurants often use a dainty vase placed in the middle of a table and spring flowers are added to create an elegant ambiance. Thus, you should think of ways that you can use spring flowers to make your environment more aesthetically pleasing.

Spring Flowers Improve the Air Quality of an Environment



When most people think of flowers, they may think of something that improves the look of an overall environment. However, it is important to remember that spring flowers also help to clean the air. As with any plants, flowers are great to have around because they help to recycle the air. Green plants and flowers emit oxygen and take in carbon dioxide. The reverse is true for humans as we breathe out carbon dioxide and take in oxygen. There is obviously a cyclic relationship between humans and plants because we both survive off of the very thing that the other emits. Given that plants and flowers give off oxygen, it would be a very good idea to have spring flowers around. These flowers and other green plants can naturally cleanse the air and make it easier to breathe. So when someone sends spring flowers to your office or home, just remember that your new bouquet of flowers is actually a natural air cleaner.

Brighten the Mood with Spring Flowers

You must admit that when someone sends spring flowers to you it can really make you feel special especially if it is done at work for everyone to see. There is just something about spring flowers that just makes them instant mood boosters. The bright colors can make even the most down person smile. There are assortments of flowers in colors such as orange, yellow, bright blue, bright purple and fuchsia that pop with intensity. If you ever want a pick me up, just go to a local florist and pick up a few brightly colored spring flowers. I am sure that you will see how effective they are in improving mood.

In all, the next time someone sends spring flowers to your home office thank them immensely. Beautiful spring flowers not only look beautiful in a vase; they also clean the air and brighten up your mood.

Easter falls early this spring so it’s fitting that the unusually warm weather has beckoned the trees and flowers to bloom early too. Easter Sunday is on Sunday, April 8th. The occasion reminds us of rebirth and renewal and certainly brings us back to nature. Everywhere you look spring is in the air. At Brant Florist, we’re ready to help you bring in the season with beautiful, fresh Easter flowers!

Each family has their own Easter traditions. Some will celebrate with a formal dinner while others will make it a more casual affair by inviting friends over for a barbecue. It’s often a time when little girls get to select new Easter dresses and all of the children look forward to a fun-filled scavenger hunt. Many will have and share flowers with those they love.

In preparation for Easter in our home, we’ll paint eggs and bring out Easter decorations including bunnies and elaborately decorated wooden eggs that we have been collecting for years. We’ll do some Easter baking, (or at least pick-up treats from the bakery), and of course we’ll fill our home with fresh flowers!
