There are many wonderful flower shops in Yonkers that can help with any floral or gift-giving needs. You can also rely on local Bronx florists or Eastchester flower shops to send flowers that are just as fresh. You may even try Pelham florists for local flower delivery.
Deep in their root, all flowers keep the light.

The garden should be adorned with roses and lilies, the turnsole, violets, and mandrake.
There you should have parsley, cost, fennel, southern-wood, coriander, sage, savory, hyssop, mint, rue, dittany, smallage, pellitory, lettuces, garden-cress, and peonies.
There should also be beds planted with onions, leeks, garlic, pumpkins and shallots.
The cucumber growing in its lap, the drowsy poppy, the daffodil and brank-ursine ennoble a garden.
Nor are there wanting, if occasion further thee, pottage-herbs, beets, herb-mercury, orache, sorrel and mallows, anise, mustard, white pepper and wormwood do good service to the gardener.

Lowly, with a broken neck,
The crocus lays her cheek to mire.

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!
