Be friends with bees, we here at Central Square Florist say. Why? Well for starters, they pollinate 80% of all flowering plants, including 90 of the most-consumed food crops. Like avocados? Apples?

It's a romance, in fact. Read More about Flowers That Bees Love & You Will Too »

It makes a teacher, admin or staff member feel special during a time that can feel pretty anxiety-ridden and high-stress. Read More about A Bowl Of Succulents For The Whole Class »
