Hello flower people! We had a wonderful turnout to International Women’s Day. Thank you to all of the lovely people that stopped by to celebrate the women in their lives! The next day that we are celebrating is World Health Day, Friday April 7th, 2017. If you haven’t heard of World Health Day, like I hadn’t, it is such a great day to celebrate and spread awareness for numerous health problems that need our attention.

This year the theme for Health Day is: Depression-lets talk. This is such an important issue, that everyone faces at some point in their lives, whether it be a loved one, co-worker, or you yourself.  Depression is a rising issue with teens and young adults, and so many people feel as if they can’t talk about it, and that is what makes depression such a serious issue. Depression has such a stigma, so the goal this year is for more people to seek help for their depression, and to get rid of the stigma. It’s thyme to change the way people think! Don’t think you’re going to kale the vibe if you open up to someone.

Maybe you know someone who’s been having a hard time lately, maybe you’ve noticed a family member or friend that’s been especially down for the past while. What better way to show you care, than flowers? Beautiful bright colours to show happiness, and brighten their day are the perfect way to break the ice and show that you are there for them. Whether it is a gorgeous bouquet, or just a small bunch of gerberas or tulips, anything can go a long way. It’s the thought that counts. Can’t make it to one of our stores?

Though flowers are a great start, you or your loved one may need to talk, and just don’t feel comfortable with the people you are closest to. If that’s the case, try calling a help line, 310-6789. We all go through tough times, and talking is the best thing you can do.

Hopefully you are all having a lovely start to spring. Come stop by the kiosk and say hi and take some time to smell the roses! Let’s celebrate World Health Day together and Make someone SMILE today!
