Since 1935, the United States has recognized National Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August, and throughout the years many nations have joined in the celebration. It is also quite fitting that National Sisters Day is observed on the same day - after all, our sisters are often our very first friends and one of our closest lifelong allies. All year long, Bagoy's Florist & Home helps our friends and neighbors in Anchorage to honor the most important people in our lives, and August 6th gives us the opportunity to do so in a very special way.
Benefits of Sisterhood: Studies reveal that people who grow up with sisters close in age are generally much happier adults. They also have a more optimistic view on life, and are often more generous and charitable - perhaps because of all the sharing they had to do over the years!

Butterflies are found throughout Alaska, from sea level to towering mountaintops. Some butterflies visit our state this time of the year, while others are native. The nectar of flowers is food for butterflies, and providing an abundance of these will ensure that your butterfly garden is the most popular spot in the neighborhood. Butterflies can get sustenance from most flowers, but each species has its preferred blooms, which are generally plants native to the region.
