The Bay Area is where you'll find great foods, great wines, and great San Francisco florists. San Francisco is part of the Greater San Francisco Bay area and is known as its cultural and financial center. Thanks to the California Gold Rush in 1848, San Francisco was one of the nations’ fastest growing cities in the 1800’s with the population going from 1000 to 25,000 within one year in 1848. Thanks to the "Summer of Love" and the hippies that congregated at Haight-Ashbury, the city also became a hub for liberal activism and the springboard for the gay rights movement.
The city enjoys beautiful weather year round with its coldest period occurring between December and February. It’s not unusual to have 70 degree temperature in San Francisco throughout the colder months so one must use another measure to mark the arrival of spring in the city. The Cinco de Mayo festival is a sure sign, tourists begin to flock to the city, area beaches become more crowded, and perhaps the most well known sign of spring is the Macy’s San Francisco Flower Show.

Now in its 63rd year, the annual Macy’s San Francisco Flower Show is a two week event that requires over a year of planning. The Union Square store is transformed in to a garden paradise with hundreds of thousands of flowering trees, potted plants and other flowers from San Francisco and around the world. The show is a favourite among locals and tourists alike who all visit the store to view the amazing floral displays throughout the building. San Francisco florists attend in high numbers to get inspiration as many of the displays are created by local San Francisco flower designers. Although San Francisco flower shops would love to be responsible for the supply of the flowers used to transform the store in to a floral wonderland, the majority of them are purchased through San Francisco flower growers directly. Some San Francisco flower wholesalers also help to supply the shows demands.
In addition to the Asian Orchid and other specialty gardens throughout the store, San Francisco flowers are also displayed as part of elaborate table setting designs in the houseware department providing creative ideas for dinner parties and weddings. One of the most popular features of the show is the Bouquet of the Day display. Each day showcases a new bouquet designed by a well known San Francisco flowers designer. You may have failed to notice some of the spring buds beginning to sprout outside, but a trip to Macy’s during the San Francisco Flower Show will leave you with little doubt that spring has arrived in San Francisco.

How can one help shivering with delight when one's hot fingers close around the stem of a live flower, cool from the shade and stiff with newborn vigor!
