Talking with a friend of mine while we were on our weekend shopping trips at a local herbarium and flower shop, we reminisced about good times when plants and flowers were used to express good things such as love attraction. My female colleagues and I innocently responded to flirting with blushed faces and cute smiles. I’m sorry to state a cliché but… Oh Lord, how I miss those good old times!
My friend’s mom used to sprinkle small leaves and pour plant baskets around apartment to bless life of her family. Today, I’ve also seen beautiful herbal blessing bottles for those of you who would decide to buy all ready made rather than do it by your own. Some of them have a tag explaining any of following intentions: Devotion, everlasting love, appreciation, or joy and happiness. My friend keeps up with tradition of recreating free-spirited and green nature inside four blocks of her walls. For her, as for many women, it expresses one’s spiritual visions and feelings, and it is also a wonderful reminder of one's dreams.
More than looking and smelling at flowers and plants, try to connect your spiritual self with them. They have life, although very short, but very powerful. In case that you are ignorant of their existence, I am placing some plants and flowers names related with love, because as a popular saying goes, “love is all we need!”. So spreadit!
