Bright colors, sweet scents, and plenty of hydration are a winning recipe for bringing pollinating bees into your garden, backyard, or front porch. Bees need all of these things, along with a bit of shade to be successful pollinators, and we need bees to maintain our food sources. Thanks to their intricate pollinating activity, bees are responsible for almost 70 of the top 100 food crops worldwide, which equates to about 90% of all consumed food. Bice’s Florist encourages you to create a simple space outside your home that invites bees to thrive.

Got vacation plans this summer? Many of us will be traveling within the U.S., but if we’re truly lucky, we’ll be going farther than that. Even if that isn’t you, you’ve likely taken a trip at one point that stuck with you; the culture of a place you visited was so compelling that it left a deep impression that has never left. Flowers are powerful in that they can conjure the feelings of other destinations, recalling their mood and spirit. Through the use of specific florals, greens and other elements, as well as unique combinations of color, texture and shape, Bice’s Florist has been able to design pieces that make our homes feel like, well, somewhere else.

There’s no better way to honor our great country than by taking part in some of our most classic American rituals.
