of either receiving....or giving...... a bouquet of fresh flowers.
To me......flowers just seem to say "hello, have a cheery day!"
and they are even more beautiful placed in a vintage vase.
But do you ponder on the meaning of the flower itself and the color?
The symbolic language of flowers has been recognized for centuries in many countries throughout Europe and Asia. For example, red roses mean "love" or " I love you"
For me.......I love any color and any kind of flower that anyone gives to me. I never think of what the meaning might be when I am given a gift of beautiful blossoms.
When I pick out flowers for someone........I don't think of what the color means......
I think about what the favorite flower and the favorite color is of the person
I am giving the flowers to.
But it is a very interesting and wonderful history to read on this link about the
In a previous post, I asked if any of you would know what the flowers could
be that are growing in my greenhouse.
I had many wonderful answers.........however,
the flowers bloomed.........and I realized that they
are a flower that I know.
They are "Stock" flower.........just like the ones that
a dear friend ( Bell) gave me years ago. Why I did not
recognize the leaves....surprises me.......but the second I saw the blooms
and then smelt the fragrance......I had my aw ha moment. These
are in a lavender color, where as Bell's are in a dark purple.
And now it all makes sense as to why these flowers grew so strong and
healthy during the summer without blooming and are now blooming in February..........
so representative of the Stock flower. I will soon be transplanting
these to the outside grounds.
The daffodils under the back yard tree have sprouted up
and I am looking forward to their cheery yellow blossoms.
So tell me..........what is your favorite flower and color of flower?
What is sprouting in your back yard?
I would love to hear!
