Celebrating Bee-Friendly Flowers

“The best things in life are free… but you can give them to the birds and bees…” -The Flying Lizzards

We think the best things in life- natural beauty, a fresh garden, beautiful smiles- are free and so enjoyable when you are purposeful about them. Enjoying farm-fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables in your own backyard is right near the top of the list. Bring birds, bees and other delightful creatures to your garden with brightly colored blooms, simple, single-petal flowers, fresh water and a bit of shade. Neubauer’s Flowers encourages you to add bee-friendly blooms and remove toxic pesticides as a recipe for success when creating a safe, natural environment right in your backyard.

Flowers In Art And Music

Flowers. It’s hard to think of something else that has inspired artists as much as these enchanting beauties. History is filled with examples of paintings and music that take inspiration from flowers, plants and herbs, often making use of them as symbols and metaphors. Sometimes, they are simply examined, praised or otherwise honored in a piece for their beauty, grace, strength and connection to the natural world. Many of our greatest painters have been moved to capture flowers in their work, exploring a blossom’s extraordinary beauty and mystery, while songwriters and performers have taken flower names for titles and used their qualities to stand in for human ones. Neaubauer’s Flowers thinks that this has never been more the case than for the rose, a flower that art and music have always been in love with.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream of Flowers

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows/Where oxlips and the nodding violet grow/Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine/With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”

Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream makes much of the season’s flowers (see above), and it’s not hard to understand why. Summer brings so many blossoms to the peak of loveliness, and it does the same for our vegetable gardens and our fruits. This makes it the perfect time to host a dinner party or any such gathering that takes its inspiration from June’s easy elegance, it’s sense of romance and sensuality. We here at Neubauer’s Flowers aren’t talking a backyard BBQ (though those are great); no, we mean a casually sophisticated event that is lit by candlelight or moonlight. Where the table is laden with platters of salmon, dishes of ceviche, cups of sorbet. Where the bright flavors of summer are captured in food and in flowers.
