Summertime Flowers

Summertime Flowers

It’s summertime! That means things HEAT up in the desert! That means it’s time to order bright cheerful summertime flowers from Roadrunner Florist & Basket Express!

My dad teases that the temperatures cool down to the 90s at night (of course he’s right).

We find it’s easier to get out and enjoy the mornings, do our work, and plan on a siesta in the afternoon! (Oh, wouldn’t it be nice if everyone could take a siesta in the afternoon!)

People seem to want to send “bright” “cheerful” and “colorful” flowers in the summer. Who can blame them?

Here are a few examples of bright cheerful summertime flowers designed and delivered by Roadrunner Florist.

When you order flowers from Roadrunner Florist, including bright cheerful summertime flowers, you can be assured they will be the freshest flowers available, professionally designed and hand delivered for you.

Our flowers arrive daily from local wholesalers, and we process them immediately and place them into our coolers. We know the value of keeping our flowers fresh, and we insure they are protected from the heat at all times. They are never left at a front door or on a porch when we deliver them, and they are always designed in a vase or basket that holds water.

Because each arrangement is custom designed, as can offer unique designs such as these. This one was to commemorate 3 young men: 3 Bird of Paradise, 3 Pincushion Protea, 3 Ti Leaves and 3 King Protea.

We often send green plants in the summer. They, too, can be bright cheerful summertime flowers. Here are a few examples of our summertime plants.

Pamela chooses the prettiest green plants available, and then dresses them up in style with different flowers, ribbons and bows. The plants are hearty, easy to maintain and grow, and the flowers never need watering. Sending a green plant from our large selection is always a great gift idea for a baby, a birthday, a congratulations, a housewarming or an express of sympathy.

Here are some more pretty flowers we’re designing and delivering for summer.

You can choose if you want the flowers designed in a basket or a vase.
