He Wants A Flower For Fathers DayHe Wants A Flower For Fathers Day

Its that time of year again. Easter, Mothers Day, and now Fathers day are all asking for us to part company and buy flowers. And we do think about flowers for many occasions, but how many of us have given Dad a flower for Fathers Day?

These days flowers are not thought of as something feminine. In our modern world, more men than ever are tuning into their nurturing sides, and starting to appreciate the act of nurturing something that is growing. It has gone beyond just giving something thoughtless as a token of appreciation. It's turned into something much deeper.

One idea for giving a flower for Fathers day is to find a nice gift basket. A lot of retailers will put a bit of extra effort to include something that your dad really likes, like his favorite wine or cheese, in with their floral arrangements. Wrap a bit of green about almost anything, and you have a tasteful gift.

Something else to be considered when thinking of a flower for Fathers Day is to purchase a live plant. A planter can bring a bit of greenery to an office desk or a favorite dresser, at home or at work. This is a great way to serve as a daily reminder of the living love between you.

Perhaps the man in your life is not one to be fussed over with plants and other gifts. Something for the garden might be more appreciated in this instance. Lots of men like to do things outdoors. Perhaps an azalea or a nice pot of tuberous begonias might be more up his street. He could incorporate them into the design of the yard, and in time your kids could take starts for their dads. What a great way to pass something on!

When thinking about this, you can consider more than a single plant, too. Something living and green could be a bush which flowered, or a vine, perhaps even a flowering tree. Just think of a tree seedling in the yard, given by his very first child on the first Father's Day you celebrate together. This tree grows with your family, each year strengthening as you strengthen your family ties. This is why those who keep such records call them family trees.

If your pops is indecisive about what he wants, you could think about getting him a tray of plants that he can use in flower beds. This could be more appropriate, for they would last through the growing season, but die with autumn's frosts. Then he can be given new plants for the next year.

If you are still stuck about what to do, remember that flower shops now sell a lot more items than just floral gifts. Ornaments, books, and other presents can all be obtained. Garden centers also stock a great variety of gardening items as well as plants. Clothing, tools, garden equipment, and things for the landscape like paving stones can all be found there. Most families use their yards to do more than grill a hot dog or play croquet. A thoughtful gift might just get Dad out of the armchair and into the garden, where he can enjoy things for many years.

We can remember those we love in many ways with a Flower for Father's Day. The arrangement could be expensive or simple, the gift a garden tree or an individual rose. Every gift of love will show Dad how much you appreciate him. That is what Father's Day is all about .
