Flowers’ Fun Facts

Flowers are nature’s best gift to humans. When we fail to express our emotions all we need is a flower. A single stem Rose can uplift a sad face in just a second, to show your loyalty and innocence Daisy is your best option. I was always fascinated by the beauty of the flowers,  their vibrant colors are simple mesmerizing, their fragrances are so intoxicating and they are the best gift anyone can give you. I remember when I was a kid, I wanted to have my own flower boutique. In fact if given a chance today, I will still love to own a flower shop, probably at the corner of a busy but family friendly street.  Oh! While writing this,  there is a very beautiful and colorful flower shop image in my mind (I wish somehow I could let you all see that).

Today for my “Fun Facts Monday” post, I will be sharing few facts about flowers. Hopefully this post will help you decide which flower is  the best option for which occasion.
