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.
