Celebrate National Gardening Exercise Day and Best Friends Day

AFM1Two special days are coming close to celebrate that also provide a great kick-off to the summer season and the arrival of summer plants and flowers into our Long Beach flower shop. National Gardening Exercise Day arrives on Saturday, June 6th and Best Friend Day is Monday, June 8th.

National Gardening Exercise Day provides a way to show everyone that gardening is a great way to get exercise whether it is bending, climbing, lifting, pulling, cutting or digging.

You can work in your own garden, assist, in a community garden, or go enjoy other’s gardens to inspire you to make the most out of this form of exercise. Plus, you will be helping to keep Long Beach looking beautiful.AFM2

Best Friends Day is a way to tell your BFF just how much they mean to you so be sure to make it a special day where you do something fun and spend as much time together as possible.

Even if you can’t be there in person, consider sending some gorgeous flowers or a plant.
