We've all heard the expression, "April showers bring May flowers," but what do May's flowers bring?
Aside from our abject appreciation, they give way to June's flowers, or the blossoms of early summer, to wax poetic about it. Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts loves what every season brings flower-wise, but there's certainly something about summer. The flowers that thrive then are some of the most dazzling of the year, saturated with color, bursting with interest. And that's why we want to do a sneak peek at what's in store, and also to point out how many flowers spring and summer share in common, making the transition from May to June not only easy but beautiful.

Summer is in full swing, and with the new season comes the expectation that insects of all sorts will visit your backyard or outdoor gardens. Some of these visitors are welcome - for instance, butterflies and bees create a lovely atmosphere that not only celebrates summer, but is important to our ecosystem. And as certain flowers will attract these insects more readily, we invite you to work with Billy Heroman's Flowers & Gifts to choose from an array of beautiful plants and flowers that are sure to be inviting.
Butterflies love fresh water, a sunny spot that's shielded from the wind, and plenty of nectar. Certain flowers work well in these conditions, too, and contain the right ingredients to bring butterflies - or even caterpillars- to your landscape. Gardens full of milkweed, sunflowers, asters and goldenrod, for example, make great homes for caterpillars and the butterflies they will become.
