What events happen in May?
There’s May Day, the Kentucky Derby, National Garden, Mediation Day (yep, May 3rd folks), National Star Wars day, National Teacher Appreciation Day (bless their souls), Bird Day, Cinco de Mayo, Nurses Day (love our nurses), National Day of Prayer (we need this badly), National Twilight Zone day (isn’t that pretty much every day lately?), Memorial Day and Mother’s Day…. just to name a few.
For many people, May means many other events such as warmer weather and sunny days. May is a time for new things to happen. Time to plant your garden and trees, shrubs and flowers. A time for renewal of the soul.
For the amazing people at the Marshall County Co-op, May events means Mother’s Day and the start of spreading joy to mothers everywhere with their beautiful, unique flowers they provide in their outdoor showcase! And not only mothers’ benefit from these beauties, grandmothers, husbands, children, aunts, uncles and pretty much everyone else who loves flowers.
Flowers can lure you in with their smell and their beauty. In fact, researchers explored the link between flowers and life satisfaction in a 10-month study of participants’ behavioral and emotional responses to receiving or having flowers. The results show that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods.
- Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups.
- Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods. Specifically, study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.
- Flowers make intimate connections. The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.
- Flowers are pretty and just make you feel good.
Flowers will be in abundance at the Co-op, and their annual Mother’s Day Event goes on from Monday, May 3rd to Sunday May 9th. In addition to flowers, you will find unique yard ornaments, fruit and regular trees, shrubs, concrete planter, benches, fountains and statuary, from Unique Stone (which is made in the USA), fertilizers and plant foods, gardening tools, and so much more. And by “so much more” I mean you get educated assistance when you have questions about the plants or flowers.
Unlike a lot of big box stores where the employees know nothing about plants or flowers, the Co-op prides their selves on the fact that they too love gardening and flowers, and they can assist you with your choices and guide you on how to produce the best possible vegetables, fruits and flowers. Just ask. They are always happy to help! And since we are on the subject of Mother’s Day, or any other day in fact, let’s not forget about the “non-living” things the Co-op also has. Like a wide variety of really cool 11” ceramic pots with unique sayings on them, scented soaps, and Naked Bee beauty products such as hand cremes and more!
Many people say browsing through the Marshall County Co-op beats browsing through any big box store or national chain. Try us out. Come and experience the Co-op in its full beauty this month.
