The Simplicity and Elegance of Flowers

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~ Iris Murdoch, A Fairly Honourable Defeat

Flowers whisper "Beauty!" to the world, even as they fade, wilt, fall. ~ Dr. Sun Wolf

If a loved one is unwell, you can cheer them up and bring a genuine smile on their face by sending a bouquet of roses along with your good wishes for a speedy recovery. To say congratulations to someone who has passed an exam with flying ‘colors’, or has been promoted in an office, choose a bouquet with assortment of gerbera daisies, roses and gladioli. Thanks to professional flower delivery services, you can send your posies and gifts in time and ensure that they remain fresh and colorful, as they ought to be when they reach the intended recipient.

There are florists who send flowers to all major countries in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Pacific region.

As another proverb goes, ‘Happiness is to hold flowers in both hands’
