The culmination of years of hard work to get to the point of graduation reflects determination and a great deal of pride.  As parents and family are always proud, giving flowers or a lovely gift basket is a great way to show thoughtfulness and pride. Flowers have been an important symbol of thoughtfulness, love and caring for many centuries. Dating back to the Roman the goddess of love Venus often pictured surrounded with different varieties of flowers. In the 19th century, many writers referenced the "language of flowers".  That language defined symbolic meaning to colors and types of flowers.

Contemplating the many things, you can do for mom is a natural and respectful thing. However, if you are a mom yourself, you need to take a moment to consider what you might do to honor you. Often, a mother may neglect thinking about themselves and wind up missing out on well-deserved rewards. For all moms, you deserve to reflect on your accomplishments and sacrifices to raise a family and keep the home functioning. It takes a lot of devotion to be a great mom. Below are some valuable tips to consider on your special day. Expect Flowers and Gifts - Perhaps throw some not - so - subtle hints out there to your husband and children that a beautiful bouquet of flowers would be a welcomed gift. Then make sure you let them know that Rockcastle Florist is where you would like the flowers to come from! Reflect on you - Mother's Day is not just another day. In fact, it is the one day per year that is completely dedicated to all mothers as a day of gratitude. It is easy to slip into the daily routine of being "super mom". Instead, take time to reflect on your accomplishments and all that you do for your immediate and extended family. Try to not spend the day critiquing your abilities and accomplishments. Reach out to other Moms - You very likely have a circle of friends some of whom are moms like you. Some of these ladies are probably people you admire for their mothering skills. Take a few moments to reach out to them and let them know about your admiration for them. Take time for yourself - It is quite normal to get up early and immediately switch to "mother mode". Maybe there are clothes on the floor, unmade beds, dishes in the sink and other things needing attention. Instead of feeling the need to jump into completing that you normally do, maybe sleep in later. Those tasks will be there tomorrow or better perhaps someone in your family may decide it is your special day and complete them for you.

Rockcastle Florist offers Stunning and Fresh Easter and Passover Flowers and Gifts

Rockcastle Florist Passover In the Jewish faith, this time of the year is referred to as Passover. The Hebrew Bible commemorates Passover as a festival which celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. This is referenced in the Book of Exodus. During the time of Jesus, Jewish pilgrims flocked to Jerusalem in hope that God would liberate them from the Romans. On one Passover, Jesus traveled to Jerusalem and the resulting disturbance in the Temple ultimately led to his crucifixion. Passover Flowers are an appropriate gift.  The best colors for this holiday are usually Blue and White. Easter Easter, which is April 17th this year, has an unusual nickname. It is occasionally referred to as the "moveable feast" meaning that it is one Religious Holiday that moves from year to year.  The reason for this change is that Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. This particular Full Moon is referred to as the "Paschal Moon" and is April's first Full Moon.  Easter, as with other holidays, ushers in a changing of the seasons. That season of course being Spring. Rockcastle Florist would be so happy to have you shop with us for Easter and Passover Flowers. Early history reveals that the Easter festival was more celebrated by Catholics than Protestants. The Puritans of New England considered both Easter and Christmas as festivals for heavy drinking and merrymaking. However, by the 19th century this belief had changed, and the holidays became a time to spend joyous moments with family. Today customary traditions of Easter Egg Hunting, Parades and the Easter Bunny have become the norm. Rockcastle Florist Easter and Passover Flowers You cannot send Easter eggs - so send a fresh bouquet of Easter flowers instead! Rockcastle Florist has the best and brightest flowers for Easter, including the traditional Easter Lily. Send Easter flowers to Rochester, NY or nationwide for a joyful Easter celebration.
