Clara L Balfour once asked, "Are not flowers the stars of the earth?" Indeed they are, is my response. Flowers bloom, ushering in seasons like constellations we can smell. They beautify and energize just about any space they enter and often captivate us with their delicate and striking varieties of colors, petals, and stems. Flowers say "I love you" in a mystical way our mouths and words cannot express.

This year when you need a pick-me-up or want to send some tangible love to close the social distancing gap, choose flowers. There is an abundance of options blossoming and thriving throughout Annapolis and Anne Arundel. I am a lover of vibrant foliage and live plants; however, I love artistically crafted arrangements of beautiful cut flowers. Luckily, many of Anne Arundel County's finest florists offer a profusion of possibilities, including fresh and silk flowers, as well as live plants.

 

All of the following Annapolis and Anne Arundel florists are tried and true, and their loyal patrons have the receipts to prove it. If you are looking for that oh-so-perfect splash of color and sophistication to bring nature into your space or your special someone's, keep reading!
