When you go about planting flowers in your flower beds and gardens, you might miss the occasional flower that you really wanted to include and you find out that it is past its prime planting season. Can you still plant flowers after their prime window? The short answer is yes, you can. However, there is a long answer to that question as well. You need not worry so much about planting flowers past their prime window but whether their location and the current climate are suitable for the flowers past their prime window. If their prime window is during early spring but they are a flower that usually grows in the south, those above the Mason Dixon line should have no trouble at all.

Sometimes it is all about finding out why the flowers you want to plant have their prime window. Is it temperature related or is it moisture related? Either way, you can usually figure out if your surroundings can offer the flowers you wanted to plant earlier the desired forecast. Can you make up for a natural depletion of water that happens in the summer months? Are you able to provide the flowers enough shade to offset the blazing summer sun? These are simple questions that can help you answer whether or not you can plant the flowers you wish to plant even if you have missed the prime planting window. Otherwise, you can always try to plant them indoors and move them outside the following spring.

I’m so “flowers” sorry”!

It is not a secret and it is not flash news that bunches are for women in most cases. They are women crazy about flowers and they are also women that want their men to give them flowers. They grow offended in case there are no flowers for them but at the same time they may run mad in case there are flowers for them, just like that. See, women know men never make presents just like that and they also know that men never give flowers just like that (at least the majority of men). And so, in case there is some man who thought it would be great to give his girlfriend a bunch of flowers just like that, he may be a man who writes his own death sentence. See, women are sure that there is no way for men to give them flowers just like that, and in case there is such a weird bunch this bunch will fir sure be recognized as the way to say “I’m really-really sorry” and be sure – she will find a reason for you to apologize. And I bet this reason will be with blond hairs and boobs and so on. So, be careful when given flowers just like that.

Bunch is a big deal?

It is common that men give women flowers because women love those. And it is common for women and for some men to care about the flowers they give and about the color of those flowers. They say there is a message in the kind of flowers and in its color. It is really so, there is a culture of giving flowers and there are a lot of words are said about messages flowers of particular color have. Though, there is no need to care about the red flowers is about love and the white about something else. Not a single person of those who give and take flowers actually bother about the color and message of it. Why bothering about message if you know that with those flowers a person wanted to make a gift and to please you? There is no need to bother about a color and kind of flowers you get. It is enough to realize that one who gives you flowers means something with the whole bunch, and not with those details. Flowers are beautiful and gifts are also beautiful and it is care that only matters but not the message a person may not even think about when picking up a bunch.

Something to say

Flowers are a great way to say that you are sorry. A fight with a friend, a loved one, a partner, or even a parent can’t be erased with the gift of a few flowers, but you can certainly take the sting out things with some flowers. Flowers are sort of like the ice breaker you can’t find with your words. They are a way of acknowledging that you weren’t at your best and perhaps said a few things that should have been left unsaid. They are the pathway into communication and growth, rather than a blanket over the sore spot you left. You might be perfect at apologies, but flowers make it a little easier.We all behave badly from time to time and flowers help us get back to the place where we can at least laugh a little, talk a little, and love a little. Most of us use flowers to say we are sorry for our partners and yet we forget that they can be very helpful when it comes to saying that we are sorry for the way we have treated someone else. Parents love flowers from their grown friends, even if minds don’t change and the best resolution is an agreement to disagree and avoid the topic. Flowers are particularly good apologies for coworkers after you’ve behaved unprofessionally and they are great for kids you came down a little hard on the other day. Flowers are the universal tool for apologies and they open hearts faster than an empty handed apology.

Favourite Flowers

All people like flowers. They take care of them, plant and grow them in hothouses, arrange flowerbeds and real flower gardens. Why do they do so?
Since ancient times there were a lot of legends about flowers. Ancient temples were decorated with a great number of flowers as there was a belief that a smell of flowers was food for the Greek gods. To please gods and to get some privileges in life rich people sent a great number of the most beautiful flowers to the temples.
The rarest flowers could cost a real fortune. The most interesting for scientists is the task to create such a sort of flowers that does not exist in natural conditions. The queen of flowers is a rose, so a lot of new sorts appeared as a result of work of selectionists. The real pride of Japanese scientists is appearance of a blue rose in 2008.
I adore wild flowers. They are simpler, paler, but Nature created them for us and they are still the same as they were at the epoch of Alexander the Great. They contain wisdom of Nature, its strength and serve as medicines.
One day a Chinese doctor was explaining use of leaves, roots and flowers for medicine to his disciples. One of them was inattentive. The doctor gave him a small basket and asked to bring a useless flower. In ten years the disciple came back and said: "Teacher, I did not find any useless flower or plant." Flowers are very important in our life. They decorate our homes, heal and help to make relations.

A bunch of flowers…

Giving flowers as a present is am ancient tradition. Today it is as topical as in past times. People give flowers to each other to demonstrate respect, friendship, love, etc. Besides, flowers are very often a hint on some offer. This offer is usually of romantic nature. When a man wants to express his feelings towards a woman, he gives her flowers. This hint is very good, as it is socially acceptable, it is always to the point and it can never be misunderstood. As for me, I wrote before that I don't like flowers. However, I understand that I should conceal these thoughts, as I will be misunderstood. It is impossible to oppose strong traditions. In any case, if flowers really produce such a positive effect on people, why not give them as a present. Fortunately, I am not a woman, and no one will ever give me flowers as a present, but I will do it when I like a woman. Do you think this is hypocritical? I think not. If I don't give flowers as a present, I will be always alone and will be deprived of a chance to create my family, because you can hardly find a woman, who would forgive me avoiding giving such presents to her. A bunch of flowers… this is so trait and unoriginal. I can't understand why women love them so much. I think that flowers should be changed for something else. I am sick and tired of flowers, first of all, because I am a creative person and I would like to invent another tradition. However, it is so hard to swim against the tide.

Artificial flowers

There is nothing worse in this world than artificial flowers. They are a parody. I can’t understand people, who like them and use them to decorate their houses. Artificial flowers are the quintessence of tastelessness and creativity. Love for artificial flowers is rather a manifestation of moneysaving. It is so very understandable, as natural flowers are very expensive and short-lived, while artificial ones are durable and don’t require any care except dusting them. The beauty of flowers is impossible to imitate. It is so complex and deep, that all attempts to imitate it are nothing else than poor attempts to imitate. True flowerlovers never decorate their houses with these substitutes. They prefer real flowers and they are not stopped by the fact that natural flowers need much care and effort. I think that artificial flowers can be easily compared with artificial woman. A handful of people have tried it themselves, but I think all people have their opinion about this appliance. Artificial flowers are not pleasant to the eye. They remind us of grey workdays and boredom of our life. They provoke depression and blues. They aggravate the state of doom and ill fate. Thus if you are exposed to depressive state, remove artificial flowers from tour house and buy natural ones. You will get relief immediately.
