“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...I could walk through my garden forever.” ― Alfred Tennyson
Valentine’s just went by and swiped some good coin for florists all over the world. I always thought that flowers were a bit trivial and honestly speaking, I was glad to be so wrong. It’s one of my biggest mistakes to date and this year’s Valentine’s was the time and venue to make amends. Just seeing the face of my future wife light up with surprise as I handed her the followers, while my friends and I serenaded her, was priceless.
It’s true that Valentine’s need not be all about giving presents to show a loved one how special he or she is and that you can easily do something romantic without breaking your bank. But it’s always good to show how you feel even if you’re just being converted into a full-time romantic.
Flowers are a great way to start with that. You can just pick flowers from your garden or at a park (provided that it’s allowed and if not, don’t do it you scoundrel.) It’s a simple gesture but it goes a long way. And not to mention, a simple pop of color from a budding tulip can easily brighten anyone’s day! Just take a hint from these floral beauties from our community members.
It’s easy to connect the idea of love with flowers. After all, romantics often use “flowery” words to express what they feel. And I don’t have any qualms with that. Add beauty and romance to your life with flowers as well as put a smile on the face of your loved ones even if Valentine’s is already over.
I’m still trying to get flowers for my mother, after all she’s the first woman in my life. You, too can catch up with the flower thing and don’t limit yourself to just Valentine’s!
