This sign is found in every store no matter what other goods they sell. The reason is that two holidays this month are good for flower sellers.

Mother's Day 14 and Memorial Day is May 29 and it is traditional to give flowers to your mother some times silk sometimes real flowers. The same is true of puttin flowers on the grave of loved ones for Memorial Day. Especially veterans of foreign wars. Memorial Day is a big day with parades and flags waving. It is a day when soldiers are shown how much their sacrifices mean to the American people to help keep our country a free and democratic country ruled by the people.

Flowers are for sale and these two holidays will help flower growers, florists, and makers of artifical flowers make a profit. The shame is real flowers don't last and artifical flowers though pretty have no scent. The flower of the future will look real and smell like a real flower. Only God can create the real thing and he is smart enough to know people don't appreciate anything that last forever.
