It's the end of the summer, a fact that is made clear by the arrival of Labor Day. Historically an occasion to celebrate the American worker, we here at Mary Murray's Flowers believe that the best way to honor every worker's efforts is to take a break from them. And so did the Labor Party in the late 19th century, proposing a day of rest for laborers that was eventually adopted by the country and designated as the first Monday in September. Now, we think of Labor Day weekend as heralding the end of summer, and we spend it gathering with friends and family, making a last trip or just kicking back at home. We're fully behind this last one, and highly recommend that you take the opportunity for a little self-care, starting with flowers. Read More about Crisp, White Flowers For End Of Summer »

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.
