Get your message across
Although in most cases flowers express love, they’re also perfect for conveying a multitude of other messages including: “I am proud of you,” “I am thinking of you,” “I miss you,” “I share in your sorrow,” “I am there for you,” and many more. That is why flowers are gifted to celebrate a birth, an anniversary, convalescence or death, a promotion, a prolonged absence, or simply to make someone happy. Whatever its significance, size, or colour, a bouquet is always current.
To most humans, flowers are seen as objects to decorate homes, gardens, bodies, and more. However, flowers have a much more important purpose than decorating. Flowers are the part of plants that make seeds which in turn make new plants. In order to make a seed, pollen from one flower has to combine with the eggs from another flower; this is called pollination. Flowers are highly adapted to attract their specific pollinators such as bees, flies, moths, hummingbirds, and bats just to name a few. This is why flowers are brightly colored and highly scented making them the beautiful creations that they are. The facts about flowers are that without them, we would not have food, medicines, dyes, textiles etc.
