One of the best things about peonies---and oh, there are so many---is that they bloom in late spring all the way through June. Which makes them a seasonal flower common to both spring and summer, and we here at Central Square Florist can think of no other flower more deserving of that honor. Peonies, with their bulbs big as fists, unfurl into their layered, scented form almost as if by magic. You look once, they're enclosed within themselves. Look again, and they've started fanning out, their petals as thin as tissue paper. No peek into early summer's flowers would be complete without acknowledging its reigning blossom, the peony.

The heat is on in Cambridge, and summer is in full swing. But just when it seems like things can't get any hotter, along comes the July birth flower, the cool blue delphinium. This refreshingly serene flower cools down a hot Boston day and adds an air of comfortable relaxation. Blue delphinium is the ideal option for all your July birthday celebrations - including if you are welcoming a new baby boy! Central Square Florist has all the summer flowers you'll be looking for to decorate all your special occasions this season.
Delphinium flowers (also known as larkspur) are generally recognized by their many shades of blue, although the flower also grows in variations of purple, yellow, white, red and pink. The flowers grow in graceful, elongated plumes that can be as tall as six feet when growing naturally; and is often arranged in a mixed bouquet to add height and drama.

We love living outdoors in the summertime, and flower gardens add both color and beauty to any outside space. Whether a true garden planted in the soil, potter plants or dish gardens, plants and flowers can make all the difference in your summer landscape. But planned correctly, you can also encourage some very special guests to your backyard or front porch - both bees and butterflies are attracted to bright blooms and specific plants - and Central Square Florist would love to help you to create a welcoming space for them.
Why Bees? At first thought, you may not think attracting bees is a good thing. But the bee population is in rapid decline globally, which has dire implications for our food supply. So even the smallest efforts to give the bees a place to collect nectar and pollinate is doing the world good! And don't worry - experts say that honeybees foraging for nectar will rarely sting. In fact, unless they are harassed or stepped on, you should have no issue watching them work. Read More about Flower Gardens with a Purpose »
Summer in Cambridge and Boston is a special time. We have warm days, but it is still not uncomfortable. There is a host of outdoor activities, whether you want to try sailing, exploring the Freedom Trail, or taking a bicycle tour. And extended daylight hours means that we have more time to get together with family and friends - in fact, sharing a meal in the summer is practically a tradition! Whether you prefer a barbecue at the beach pavilion or a dinner party in your backyard, Central Square Florist would like to remind you to bring along flowers! We know that gorgeous summer bouquets and centerpieces turn a normal event into a special occasion - and they also make lovely hostess gifts.
