By Peggy Jo Goodfellow, Arizona Farm Bureau Marketing Manager: If you send someone a single rose, you are sending a message of Love. You can send all kinds of messages with flowers. Flowers are sent for a multitude of reasons: celebrate birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentines Day, Easter, get well, welcome, goodbye, thinking of you and to celebrate a life well lived.
