If you are anything like me, you have had your fill of winter. When I have days like this my mind drifts off to daisies. Daisies make me think of warm summer breezes, sunshine, and life. So today I wanted to bring a little warmth to everyone with just a few poetry clips and qoutes on daisies. I hope it brings you the warmth it does me. And if not, take it a step further and order some daisies to be delivered to your door from Brant Florist and bring a little summer into your life a little early.
“There is a flower, a little flower
With silver crest and golden eye,
That welcomes every changing hour,
And weathers every sky.”
James Montgomery, A Field Flower
“The Rose has but a Summer reign,
The daisy never dies.”
James Montgomery, The Daisy–On Finding One in Bloom on Christmas Day
“Bright flowers, whose home is everywhere
Bold in maternal nature’s care
And all the long year through the heir
Of joy and sorrow,
Methinks that there abides in thee
Some concord with humanity,
Given to no other flower I see
The forest through.”
William Wordsworth, To the Daisy
“The daisy’s for simplicity and unaffected air.”

“If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.” Nadine Stair quotes
“Daisies are like sunshine to the ground.” Drew Barrymore quotes (American Actress, 1975)
When planning a winter wedding, one may think the flower choices are limited due to the season. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In all actuality, there are some flowers that are just better suited for the winter and the natural blooming time in other parts of the world which make them perfect for a winter wonderland wedding theme.
Also it is important to keep in mind, that just because certain flowers are no longer blooming in your back yard doesn’t mean they are not blooming in another part of the world. Most wedding flowers of choice are available year round.
Some of the more commonly used flowers ion wedding flower arrangements are daisies, roses, and tulips in deep rich colors like burgundy and deep reds. If you live in northern climates where snow is a fact of life, accenting your wedding in solid blocks of color with your flowers plays nicely off the whitened landscapes of winter. Accents of gold and silver also play nicely in the winter wedding flower theme. Other considerations can be the traditional Christmas plaid or a blue/white/silver winter wedding flower theme.
Your florist from Brant Florist can help you select the perfect wedding flower arrangements that will set your theme and provide you with all the beauty you dreamed about for your winter wedding.
There are meanings ascribed to flowers. Since ancient times, flowers have been used to symbolize feelings and circumstances. Even today, flowers are part of the most meaningful times in our lives, such as birth, death, weddings, holidays and convalescence. Using flowers as symbols began with many ancient religions. They continued to grow in usage and popularity throughout the Renaissance, reaching the highest pinnacle in the Victorian age.
It is not unusual to see different flowers listed as part of the worship of many ancient deities such as Apollo, Cerridwen, Aphrodite and Brigid. Flowers used in several Renaissance paintings are thought to be a symbol of various virtues. Adding emotional meaning really took precedence in the Victorian era. There was a book written in 1819 about the meanings of flowers called “Le Language des Fleurs” by Madame Charlotte de la Tour. One that was written in 1884 is still used today: “Language of Flowers” by Kate Greenaway. Continue reading
