Who’s your Valentine? Valentine’s Day is for everyone you care about. Your mother, father, sister, brother, husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend- they are all special people in your life. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th every year. Go buy some flowers or chocolates. This is the one day a year we are to profess our love for that special someone. Friends and family are to be cherished. Enjoy your life, enjoy your friends and family. After all, it is a holiday clearly marked on all calendars. Celebrate life!
I remember handing out valentine day cards to my friends in school and then when I grew up, to my close friends at work. I always bought small gifts to hand out on Valentine’s Day just to make someone happy. I was known as the gifting angel in the workplace. Perhaps that is why I opened my business Sunshine Baskets & Gifts in 2002. My joy came from seeing the smiles on peoples faces. You can also call this random acts of kindness. Give a gift without expecting anything in return. Then see how good you feel.
Tell me why we should limit ourselves to just one day a year to show that special someone that we care about them? A single rose is sure to put a smile on someone’s face.
But, what about single people who are not “in love” with one special person? What about people, whether married or single who want to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Do you have to be ”in love” to celebrate love and friendship? Maybe you are in love with more than one person. After all, we love different people for different reasons.
Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers and sweethearts. It is for everyone you care about. Think of your friends and how special they are to you. Friendships allow us to bloom in many different ways. Friends enrich our lives.
So go ahead and celebrate Valentine’s Day. Be happy, be in love every day or just this one day each year. Surprise someone with a Valentine card, flowers or chocolates. Celebrate things you have in common and just the joy of being friends. Sunshine Baskets & Gifts in Las Vegas is here to help you send your loving thoughts to that special person in your life. All through the year, we are here for you. Give us a call-we are happy to help you.

This article is for all of my clients that have pollen allergies. Orchids for Valentines Day for people with pollen sensitivity. The reason orchids have flowers is for reproduction, and in many cases, pollination is the means of propagation. Insects, birds and even mammals can transfer pollen from orchid blossoms to other areas to instigate the growth of new orchid plants. However, gardeners with allergies and anyone interested in orchid reproduction will find that orchid pollen is surprisingly different than pollen from many other types of flower
The Most Important Things You Need To Know All About Growing Orchids!
Orchids have pollen, but it’s not the free-floating variety common to many other types of flowers. Instead, orchid pollen is sticky and remains in its pollen packet until a pollinator, such as a bee, whisks it away. However, the pollen remains stuck on the pollinator; it never has the opportunity to drift in the air. This means that orchids are heavily reliant on pollinators for this type of reproduction.
How Orchids Attract Pollinators
Orchids have evolved natural ways to encourage pollination, and they go beyond enticing scents and colors. For instance, when pollinators land on the petals of a Bulbophyllum putidum, the flower gives way under the weight and cause the pollinators to fall into the pollen packets. Meanwhile, Phalaenopsis orchids often have flat, white petals that resemble moth wings, which attract real moths looking for mates. Many orchids have natural runways that make it easy for bees with ultraviolet vision to find their way to the pollen packets and back out again.
Facts for Allergy Sufferers
If you have a pollen allergy, fear not: orchids pose no problem. You can even sniff an orchid to enjoy its fragrance without worrying about pollen triggering your allergies. Because the pollen is sticky and hidden in pollen packets, it’s nearly impossible to come into contact with orchid pollen unless you do so on purpose to propagate your orchids. This makes orchids smart choices for a home garden if you have pollen allergies.
