My Today's Flowers offering is a large pot of blue Asters (Michaelmas Daisies). I always buy them in September in honor of my mother who loved asters and I look for the bluest ones I can find for me--so we both win. Visit Today's Flowers, the idea of Luiz Santilli who says on his site:
Its so hard to find someone who doesn't like flowers.Flowers represent all our best feelings.Today's Flowers is a virtual flower shop.
Finally, Something for Everybody and a Garland for the Year, a Book for House and Home by John Timbs, 1866, quotes an old saying.
'In the Autumnal garden, the day (St. Michaelmas) is florally commemorated:
The Michaelmas daisy, among dede weeds,
Blooms for St. Michael's valorous deeds.
And seems the last of flowers that stood
Till the feast of St. Simon and St. Jude.'
