National Nurses Day falls on May 6 this year, with National Teachers following on May 8. But the week of May 6 through 12 is devoted to our appreciation for both of them, making it the perfect opportunity for you to adorn the teacher's desk and the nurse's station with flowers. These are two fields dominated by women, who we here at Norfolk Florist like to think of as "super ladies." They are our mamas, sisters, daughters, aunts, friends, neighbors and colleagues. They serve the rest of us, educating, protecting and inspiring countless people, from our youngest citizens to our oldest. They deserve our thanks all year long, but this is definitely the time to make our appreciation concrete. Read More about Treat Your Teachers And Nurses To Flowers
