Happy 1st Day of Fall 2014!

Happy 1st Day of FallIt is finally here – Happy 1st Day of Fall 2014 to you! The first full day of Autumn is here and we are happy to share this day with you! The Fall Equinox signifies balance, the day when both day and night times are of the same length, or in essence, in balance. We know all too well that the nights will begin to get longer and Alaska’s temperatures start to fall quickly. Autumn is the time to bring in our outdoor plants and harvest fruits and vegetables, plus determine what we need to prepare for the upcoming winter.

Bagoy’s Florist & Home wants to help restore a little bit of that balance with you and bring a touch of the Fall season into your home. Fresh from the fields, we have bushels of bright beautiful sunflowers. Visit either of our two locations on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 for a sunflower and a chocolate treat. That’s right – A FREE Sunflower and Chocolate just for you to say Happy Fall!

If you want to spread the Sunflower and 1st Day of Fall cheer to a friend or family member, take a look at these Autumn arrangements we can deliver or have ready for you to pick up.
