ProFlowers saves the day...

On more than one occasion I have somehow managed to completely forget about an upcoming birthday or other special event until the very last moment.

Yes, I know, I'm a terrible friend.  Or family member.  Actually, I tend to be quite organized and plan for these things well in advance so that I'm prepared.  But sometimes life just gets in the way and I forget.

When I've finally remembered the event at the last moment, I've fallen back on ProFlowers.  A little pricey for my frugal self, but I know it is an easy way to make a friend feel special on her birthday.  And that's well worth it to me when it's the last minute and I don't have time to shop for anything else.

Besides shopping on the ProFlowers site is pretty fun... it's not just flowers!  They have all kinds of birthday baskets, plants, new baby gift sets and gourmet cookies.

So I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to do a product review for them.  They sent me the Hibiscus Bonsai.  Take a peek at it, it's so pretty!

My bonsai arrived well packaged and in great condition.  It only had one flower, but plenty of little buds ready to open up, since it blooms in summer.  Over the past week many of those buds have opened up into the most beautiful flowers.

When I received my bonsai, I was surprised to find a care sheet enclosed.  I thought that was a really nice touch, especially for people like me that are clueless with this kinda stuff.  Good thing they included it too, because I didn't realize that this particular bonsai is an outdoor plant.  But with the care sheet, it gave me all the info I needed.
