You don't remember a time when she was not there. You grew up together, went through all the ups and downs together. You laughed, you cried, you talked all night long. Your sister is your lifelong friend, and she means the world to you. This month, we have the opportunity to celebrate the very special relationship between best friends and sisters - or the woman who fills both roles. National Friendship Day and National Sisters Day are both recognized on August 6th. So whether you have a sister you adore, or a best friend who is just like a sister, this is the perfect time to send them a gift which reminds them of how special they are. And you need look no further than Port Charlotte Florist for all of the beautiful flowers and gifts she'll love.
Did You Know? Even though they may drive you crazy sometimes, growing up with a sister actually seems to be good for your mental health.

Butterflies are among the most interesting and lovely creatures in nature. Cultivating a butterfly garden with appropriate flowers and plants (as well as a few necessary accessories) will attract butterflies, and encourage them to linger. You may think of the butterfly gardens you have seen at botanical gardens and think that a backyard version is out of reach - but butterfly gardens can come in many forms - potted plants, window boxes, or even small corners of the yard can be transformed to accommodate butterflies. And Port Charlotte Florist would love to provide the flowers you'll need to catch their eye. Read More about Creating a Butterfly Garden of your Own
