Is it just a spring passing fashion trend? Or are flowers the essence of romance? My girlfriends seem to think that flowers represent a thoughtful expression of intimacy or at least I think that way. The first flower I ever received from a boy was in seventh grade during an assembly. He stole a rose from a neighbouring house’s garden, and I still have it. Since then I keep one flower from each bouqet that I receive, including prom corsages and congratulation flowers. I’m sentimental (and a hoarder) like that.
While in residence and apartments before my vase-life I would cut my bunches of flowers short and stick them into the multitude of mugs that I own around my room. Now that I have a vase they usually sit in the kitchen until the work week where they move to my desk. For the record I cannot wait until I can have a kitchen table of my own to put my own flowers on.
I’m not sure what my favourites are. I love daisies and sunflowers, but basically anything colourful I love them all. I wish I could have fresh flowers in my house every week, but that’s expensive and unrealistic.
If you’re looking for something simple as a gift or a thank you,I know that a little flowers go a long way.
