Flowers Speak Too

 


Visitors: 135

It is traditional and stylish to “say it with flowers. ” You can send flowers to say welcome; I am sorry; I love you; and many more. Beautifully arranged and fragrant flowers can brighten up a person’s day. World over, flowers have been in use since ancient times to decorate palaces and homes, in rituals, during spring dances, as a part of weddings, and more.

Flowers are not selected randomly, over the years they have developed meanings. For example, the acacia means concealed love, chaste love or beauty; the aster symbolizes both love and daintiness; a pink carnation means says I will never forget you; while the yellow says rejection or disappointment; the tulip says you have sunshine in your smile.

Then of course there are “birthday” flowers. Those born in February have the primrose and violet as birth flowers; while the larkspur and water lily are birth flowers for those born in July; and the holly, narcissus, and poinsettia are flowers for birthdays in December.

Birth signs too have specific flowers: for Arians who are passionate and adventurous the flowers are red roses, tulips, and amaryllis while for Scorpios the flowers are hibiscus, peony, and amaranthus among others.

The colors of flowers have meaning and speak a language that is their own and there are scientific as well as traditional interpretations.

Traditionally:

  • Red flowers signify romance.

  • Yellow flowers friendship.

  • White flowers reverence.

  • Peach flowers thanks.

  • Pink flowers appreciation.

  • Orange flowers flames of desire.

  • Purple flowers mean love at first sight.

    Scientifically speaking, colors are known to affect the mind and soul. So, a color can spread joy, relieve tensions, energize a person, or sooth. In fact, flowers are known to have healing properties too:

  • Black lends power, confidence, and self esteem.

  • Blue is calming to the mind and soul. The color is known to lower blood pressure and relieve hypertension.

  • Red sets the pulse racing and is known to induce passions.

  • Green is nurturing and relaxes the mind and body.

  • Violet induces calm and peace.

  • Pink soothes and is like a salve, cool and calm.

  • Yellow is energetic and spreads sunshine.

    All over the world, there are many traditions and beliefs and poems as well as stories that glorify the beauty and uniqueness of flowers. Some kinds of flowers have a special place in coronations, rituals, and celebrations. Flowers have always blessed life on earth and will always be there for you to gift and say “I care. ”

    The language of flowers is not set, rigid, or universal. They have different meanings and connotations in different parts of the world. Flowers can help you express thoughts, feelings, and emotions, they do the needful when words are difficult to say.
