Communicate Your Feelings Through Flowers

Flowers are perhaps the most perfect gift, graciously supplied by the earth. The mere sight of one’s favorite flower can soothe frazzled emotions, stoke the fires of new love, and rekindle feelings of hope. Flowers are living works of art that remind us that life is worth living. It would serve anyone well to learn more about flowers.

Read on to discover what types of flowers may be most meaningful to your loved ones (or yourself) on a special occasion or just an ordinary day.

Let the Flowers Do the Talking

Before you choose a type of flower to give to your loved one, ask yourself what you’d like to communicate to him or her. Whatever the sentiment is, flowers can express it. For example:

  • Love – There is no better way to express love than with classic, exquisite roses. Though typically associated with romance, roses are not just for lovers. Yellow roses are often exchanged between dear friends. Red roses are the ultimate Valentine’s Day treat. If you’re looking for something out-of-the-box, ask your florist for tie dyed roses.
  • Purity, Beauty, Innocence – Daises are often equated with innocence and youthfulness; they are an ideal gift for a young girl, a high school graduate, or a free spirit of any age. A bouquet of daisies can minister feelings of carefreeness and youthful exuberance.
  • Style, Class – Lilies, particularly Casablanca lilies, communicate that you see your loved one as beautiful, stylish, and one-of-a-kind. Its amazing fragrance makes this type of flower even more perfect.
  • Luxury, Strength, Beauty – Orchids are the best flower to give to someone you deeply value. Most people liken orchids to costliness and rarity. Katie Pavid of the Bristol Post explains, “During the Victorian era, orchid symbolism shifted to luxury, and today this sense of magnificence and artful splendor continues, with orchids representing rare and delicate beauty.” A gift of orchids will be long remembered.
  • Fascination – You might not know it, but carnations can effectively express fascination, making them a great gift to be sent by a secret admirer.

Colors Change the Meaning of Flowers

The color of a flower has the ability to alter or totally change the message you wish to communicate to the flower receiver. For example, giving your loved one pink flowers will communicate that you admire her femininity. White would highlight the receiver’s purity. Purple speaks of the high regard you hold your loved one in, and red represents romantic love and passion. Ralph Waldo Emerson exclaimed, “The earth laughs in flowers.” This lovely statement reminds us of the joy flowers can bring, and the simple power they possess to touch hearts and express sentiments. What is your favorite flower, and what color do you prefer? When was the last time you received a breathtaking bouquet of nature’s art? Share with us in the comments section below.

Colorful Flowers to Plant this Spring

Do April showers bring May flowers where you live? In many parts of the world, especially the United States, this is true. In some areas, flowers spring up with little help. They create breathtaking scenery throughout nature. You can also create a distinct backdrop by planting flowers of your choosing.

Flowers come in all shapes and sizes, literally. From sunflowers, which can grow beyond 12 feet tall to trailing calibrachoas, which are best hung, you will be able to choose the perfect flowers to make your scenery complete. There are no wrong flowers to pick when planning a garden, but there are some colorful choices Segmation is excited to see this season.

 Flowers In Bloom by Segmation

Here are four colorful flowers we hope to see this spring:

      1. Dahlias are dramatic flowers. Related to sunflowers and daisies, they are tall with full blooms. They can be seen in a multitude of bright colors (except blue) throughout the entire summer and into fall. These flowers are at home in Mexico, where they are the national flower.
      2. Clematis is actually a vine plant that reaches for the sun. With is roots planted deep in mulch and the support it needs for its delicate frame, clematis will climb, twist, curl and sprout new purple leaves.
      3. Daffodils are properly known as narcissus flowers. When they appear it is safe to say spring has sprung. In fact, from their appearance it looks like they want to announce it themselves. With their trumpet-esc bells, ruffling pedal collars and vibrant shades of yellow and orange, they are sure to catch everyone’s attention.
      4. Snapdragons bring afresh sense of color and fun to any garden. These flowers will develop into different bright shades as they take on the shape of a dragon’s mouth. This is why the flower properly known as an antirrhinum is now popularly known as snapdragons.

All this talk of flowers beckons the question: when will spring reach full bloom? It could be right around the corner or a ways off depending on where your live. But if you are craving the surrounding of plush flowers in full bloom, check local flower shows. Many cities, like San Diego, look forward to the upcoming floral exhibitions.

Flower Shows

Each year The San Diego Museum of Art hosts a fundraiser and flower show called, “Art Alive.” Unlike other flower shows, this year there will be over 100 “floral interpretations of famous artwork.” Also presented will be flowers inspired by the Spanish baroque architecture of the museum and its gardens. If you are in the area, this is going to be something you want to see with your own eyes.

No matter where you live, this is the season where you will want to notice the natural beauty of flowers. Whether you plant them yourself or enjoy the ones that spring up, enjoy the sight while you can. Blink and you might miss it.
