The new year is arriving soon and bringing with it the possibility of newness. A fresh start and opportunity to improve aspects of our lives can be a welcome change. The floral experts at Billy Heroman’s Flowers recommend starting by surrounding yourself with flowers.
Flowers add color to your world, and color leads to creativity. Add some color and find inspiration when you fill your home or office with blooms in your favorite colors.
Plants and flowers purify the air, and when your air is clean, you are healthy. Studies show that people surrounded by flowers and plants have fewer colds, headaches and congestion than those without plants near them.
Green has the power to reduce stress, and in 2019, don't we all want a bit less stress? If looking at the color green is known to keep stress and anxiety at bay (and it is), then flowers with leafy greens should relax you quickly. Read More about New Year, New You

From September 15 through October 15, the U.S. celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, a time to acknowledge the rich contributions of Latin America, including its floriculture. Without Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and the Americas, we wouldn't have sunflowers, dahlias, anthurium, roses and much more.

"Billy" Heroman, who we remember with love and affection this September 9.
