I give these to my wife once and a awhile. Just because I love her.




In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Some flowers can be eaten, nastursiums are good in salads and my Grandmother used to used crystallised violets as cake decorations.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Another amazing thing about flowers is that they can have decorations on their petals in wavelengths of light often ultraviolet light, that humans cannot see but other creatures such as pollinating insects can.

They make it easier of insects such as bees to find the nectar that a flowers produces and also pollinate them.

I believe you, Romany.

In fact, it is grand addition to my small knowledge.

Thanks, -AJ.

Glad you found it interesting.

Years ago, when you gave someone flowers it wasn't just all kinds of flowers put together in a bunch. You were giving a message to the person; so you would choose flowers that said (for example) "I dream of you each night but am too shy to tell you." or "I will always love you but I must leave you."...whatever you wanted.

Valentines Day cards used to do the same thing - the flowers which decorated the cards meant different things. From time to time I come across these old cards in the markets and I always stop to see what they are 'saying'.

PS - there is also a (sometimes rather saucy!) Language of Fans!
