Mother's Day is fast approaching, have you bought your gift for that special lady yet? It is time to make those flower arrangement orders. Not sure where to go to get those beautiful flowers? Here is a list of five great Tyler area flower shops that can help you out. 

My friend was babysitting a young boy while he played in a field. He picked a few small flowers for his mother. On the way to give her these flowers he stopped a young man to show off the gifts he had chosen for is mother. This very smart man told the boy, "Never stop giving your mother flowers. She needs to feel appreciated in every way you can show her and flowers are pretty and sweet. Your mother will always be one of the most important women in your life. That is why you can never stop giving her flowers."

What great advice. My friend and I discussed this token of wisdom later and decided that the young man was on to something.

What woman doesn't like being gifted flowers? And, it is very important to show appreciation to the woman that gave and cared for your life. Where would any of us be without a mother?
