We often think of the crop of new flowers that arrive without fail every spring as being coveted for their bright beauty. And in fact they are, but the season’s flowers are enchanting for their fragrance, too. Here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts, we love the idea of designing with scent in mind as well as color, texture and contrast. After all, our flowers should be experienced fully, since they make an appeal to all of the senses.
We here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers want to paint a picture for you, and it’s called spring. This lush, fresh season is just around the corner and promises that our gardens will return and revive, that the days will grow longer, the light a little bit brighter. Warmth and happiness are just ahead, spring suggests. Best of all, it’s a season awash in flowers.
