lowers are Energy in a beautiful form. Flowers are individuals in presentation, color, fragrance, and growth. They grow at various times of the year and in different quantities of sunlight and shade.

Flowers' presence activate the senses in numerous ways. They attract the eye and signal joyful and sad occasions. Many people breathe in their fragrance as their eyes are lowered or when their eyes are closed.
I have never seen anyone nor have I smelled a blossom when my eyes were looking up thirty five degrees and dilated slowing my brain into the alpha state. I will do that the next time I receive flowers or, in fact, buy them for myself. Flowers make the perfect gift for both. Feeling them in the hand or against the body is a pleasant experience which is why so many people do it. Thorns convey that, in many species, you can touch the petals but leave the flower where it is.
The American Society of Florists has compiled the list of flower meanings below based on historical information. I thought that it would be useful. If the opportunity presents itself, take the time to allow a person to whom you are giving flowers to receive the kind that represents their personality according to YOU. They are beautiful, but give roses a break unless the personality is passionate love - the red are the ones most gifted. Perhaps, like calla; carnation; chrysanthemum, and lily, they are given when you either do not know, are attempting to be kind, or attempting to impress.

The above is a "dumb" headline but I thought it was necessary to highlight what each of us can do and create a useful and pleasant ambience. Monarchs and bees are dying from their flora being destroyed by products like glysophate and other activities for which humans are responsible. The Facebook poster graphics, are succinct and I think printable even if it is wallet size. Please use the information. Butterflies' and bees' contributions are important.
I wrote on another page about my experience in the British Virgin Islands that happened only one time: these things which turned out to be butterfly chrysalis were all over the place - on the clothes I hung online, the side of the house, on the railings. I was brushing them off with a broom and I heard, Turn around. It was a disembodied voice. I turned around and saw a brand new butterfly emerge. That was when I knew what those things were. I left the rest alone. They stayed and consumed the leaves from the trees around the house. They stayed and fluttered their wings sending out an amazing energy I was able to feel when I centered. I had no proof but I was sure that they provided energy for the trees to sprout new leaves as quickly as they did. It was an amazing experience for which I only have my memory. I took no pictures. I had no idea what was happening or what to expect. But over a decade later, I still feel that it was an amazing thing to witness.
Without bees, a generous part of our diet would not exist because they are the pollinators of a lot of the products we consume. Many of the herbs and flowers below are beneficial and make wonderful additions to gardens, paths, and flower pot arrangements.
I wrote about my beloved in Friend Clement Edwardo Hill, II. I used flowers at altars to improve the energy in the house to help him heal. And I used flowers at the altars I created for him in other places where I lived temporarily. When I find our home, I intend to have altars in several places for him.
