Flowers


Flowers. I adore them, obsess about them, and could not live happy without them. Regardless their arrangements (farmed or wild), their intended purposes (romance or friendly gestures), their shapes, colors, origins, or varieties – flowers color our world with their beauties in majestic ways. Their delicacy and short life span reinforce a constant of life, temporality. That, life is beautiful but fragile and short.

Some people might believe that flowers are over-rated, but have you imagined what planet earth would be like without flowers and greeneries? I would guess that world looks something like Mars, Venus, or the Moon. Lifeless and bland.
I prefer it here on earth, where the flowers bloom; spent in a matter of days but they always come to bloom again to keep feelings anew. To keep me renewed.

Arlene Wright-Correll wrote “when words escape, flowers speak. While they may not last as long as diamonds, flowers are forever. We associate flower with the special times of our lives. Birthdays, marriages, farewells…No occasion goes without the fragrance of flowers.”

She further said “when we wish to convey passion, respect, congratulations, or apology to the people most precious to us, only flowers will do.”

  1. I recently read a lovely book called The Language of Flowers. It’s fiction but i think you would really enjoy it as it describes the meaning of the giving of certain flowers.

        1. Sue Ann, thank you so much for recommending the book. I read the sample and couldn’t put off purchasing the book. Next, I couldn’t with put my tablet down until I finished it in three days.

        2. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. (I’m assuming you did!) I’m surprised it’s not better known. I think I found about it from another blogger. Loved learning about the flowers and their meanings.
