A Farm Fresh Bouquet For Summer

Be like the bees and hover around some gorgeous, farm-fresh flowers.

We all know how important these industrious, efficient little insects are to the planet, and if you don’t know, here’s a primer: At least 1/3 of our food is dependent on pollination. Bees pollinate over 80% of flowering plants overall. In fact, one in three bites of food we consume comes straight from those pollinated plants. Like many, Mary Murray’s Flowers is a huge fan of bees because they play such a pivotal role in the planet’s health and well being. And they love what we love—flowers.

One of the best ways to support bees in their endeavors is to be a patron and supporter of a local colony. Buy locally-produced honey products, support local growers and farmers, and keep fresh flowers in your home. How does that help? Flowers purchased locally are often procured locally, which in turn feeds the bees, so they can do their all-important job. Having flowers in the home is also a wonderful way to feel connected to nature, which encourages you to care about it, and therefore to preserve it.

Want a bouquet that looks as though it’s fresh from the garden and that features some of the most popular flowers with bees? Sunflowers & Peonies is that arrangement. Both flowers enchant bees, appealing to them through color (bees prefer white, purple, blue, pink and yellow blossoms) and fragrance. When the bees arrive, they’re rewarded: these beauties are also full of nectar.
