If there is any week that should go on forever, we hope its this one.

So today is World Kindness Day which kicks off World Kindness Week. Welke’s House of Roses is very excited to see the spotlight on being kind. We truly believe that these kinds of actions can really change the world. We only hope that we can keep kindness in the forefront of our minds forever. Welke’s House of Roses has a long lasting vision on helping those who do random acts of kindness. We even have a program here that will give away free roses once a week to those who go out of there way to help others who are expecting nothing in return. For more information follow the link below.


For some additional inspiration enjoy the video below. Thanks and lets try and change the world one small deed at a time

What a great event, Honoring those who brought Honor to this Country.

I cant wait until August 1, 2012. This truly is a once in a lifetime event. Honoring those who brought honor to this country is such a privilege. For information please follow the link below.


The magic of Honor Flight

You know, there is only a couple “once in a generation” events that happen in someones life and this is one of them.

“There is only a few of them left, the ones that are alive have a very strong bond within”, its hard to keep the emotions in check after watching this. I’m so proud to be apart of this great country. Please follow the link below and support this fine generation of men and women who served this great country.


This hits close to home for us here at Welke’s House of Rose because of our veterans we work with day after day here at the shop, especially Bill Lang our WWII veteran.

Sky rockets in flight…..Where do I go for fireworks?

I don’t know what its is but I can never figure out when there is going to be fireworks.  You would think you could go to your local park at dusk on the 4th and boom, but its not always that easy. I found this site that will help all those in the Milwaukee area find the big bangs. I thought I would try and make it as easy as possible.

Where are the fireworks?

Remember your Father’s past and present.

As I made a delivery today to a graveyard I couldn’t help but think about all the fathers in my life, past and present. This fathers day may we remember our heritage and the trail blazers that have come before us, as well as the fathers in our lives now. Make sure you stop by, where ever they are and pay your respects. If you want to bring something with you stop in at Welkes and bright up the day.


Its really makes you reflect on the time that you have with you loved ones.  One thing is for sure “time” is one thing you can never get back.  Live in the moment and cherish the people you love!!

I bet you didnt think we could relate flowers to Father’s Day

I bet you didn’t think we could relate flowers to Father’s Day? Your right, I can’t. I’m drawing a major blank here when it comes to Father’s Day and flowers…..sike!! Come on people…I thought by now you should know me better than that. O.k so if your dad is like my dad he is normally getting a tie and some beef jerky for fathers day, he is going to look at the tie wear it once and we will never see it again. Then he will look at the beef jerky pretend it looks as good as manna from heaven and say we are the best kids ever. So I’m being a little sarcastic but I mean who takes fathers day serious anymore anyway. Its a day where he wakes up to some breakfast and has to BBQ his own dinner. If you don’t believe me watch this video.

Anywho, the only thing that would make his day more of a blast would be to plant some beautiful flowers in the garden. That’s right people give your Dad some more yard work on his only day of the year, come into Welke’s House of Roses and pick out some beautiful flowers for the garden. It might even be nice if you planted them for him.

Does every rose have a thorn?

Bret Michaels would like you to believe that, but is just not true. There are several species or rose that are thornless.  Zephirine Drouhin and Multiflora Ramblers are species of roses that are completely thornless, but enough of these big words we have your back here at Welkes. We receive all of our roses fresh from growers and strip them ourselves. You never have to worry about pricking your finger on our roses. Now the real roses that Bret is talking about…..you will have to form your own opinion.

If you could only read her mind…buy her a rose.

Preach on Kenny. We are so lucky to have a man with the talent of Kenny Rogers to able to read a woman’s mind. For all the men out there THANK YOU KENNY RODGERS!! Just a little something that Kenny forgot to tell you is that Welke’s House of Roses has the best roses around. Another thing he didn’t mention is that one singe rose means Perpetual love..Awe isn’t that precious. Gentlemen make sure you stop by every once and again and show your love to your significant other.

“The language of Roses” part duex

To continue on with our theme this month, here is another interesting tidbit about roses.
Did you know that Pale Color roses mean friendship. They would be good to send to a tennis partner or maybe a neighbor who is house sitting for you. Gentlemen, this is a good tip for sending roses to a colleague or friend, with out coming on too strong.
