In addition, Congress wisely selected the summer season as the best time to desiginate this special day. This season is typically the best time weather wise and schedule wise for people to celebrate. Reasons for celebrating National Best Friends Day are pretty obvious. These people are special in your life and you want them to know you appreciate them. However, like many other occasions or life events, there are some research studies that indicate there are health reasons for celebrating.

They are popular because of their beautiful colors, shape and petal structure, as well as their lovely fragrance. While many landscape roses have 5 petals, hybrid tea roses, those produced for commercial cutting, can have up to 40 petals. Best of all, there are always new varieties to discover with over 150 rose species and thousands of fabulous cultivars.

Roses are a global favorite among flowers. The flower can be enjoyed year round but mostly available during spring and summer, especially peaking during June. Also, June is a month where roses are widely used for special celebrations, such as weddings, graduations, birthdays, and more.
