“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the mind.”
― Luther Burbank
“I must have flowers, always, and always.”
― Claude Monet
“A flower blossoms for its own joy.”
― Oscar Wilde
“The earth laughs in flowers.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Flowers are beautiful, yes. But because these fragile masterpieces of petal and leaf, stamen and stem also evoke such profound emotion, they have provided infinite inspiration for painters, poets, writers, and musicians for centuries.
1. Flowers are beautiful and promote love
Most people pick up bouquets for themselves because they’re so beautiful. Whether you love Roses, dahlia or lilies, they make for the perfect decoration to add some life to a kitchen counter or dining room table. Not to mention, fresh blooms typically emit a lovely scent, which makes the air around them seem cleaner and lighter. Who wouldn’t want that in their homes?
2. Use flowers to appreciate someone
Nothing says “I love you”, “Thank you”, or “I am sorry” better than a bunch of blooms. That is Valentines day is celebrated with red roses, Mother's Day is with lilies, Women’s day with pink carnations and glorious Gladiolus for expressing love as an admirer
3. Flowers Keep you happy, & less tense
Doctors don’t often prescribe fresh flowers to make their patients feel better, but in many cases, blossoms can make pretty amazing health boosters. In a study, patients who recently had abdominal surgery were placed in hospital rooms that either did or didn’t contain flowers and other plants. The ones who stayed in rooms with blooms needed less pain medication and had lower blood pressures and heart rates.
Fresh blossoms can also affect mental health. In the same study, patients who were able to look at flowers every day reported feeling less anxious and overall more positive than their counterparts. Researchers discovered that blooms have powerful emotional effects, helping people feel less depressed, less emotional and happier in both the short and long term.
4. Flowers promote productivity
They obviously have some health- and mood-boosting benefits, but further research actually shows that they can benefit people’s productivity and ability to complete tasks. Why? According to a study from Harvard, simply looking at flower can boost people’s moods and energy in the morning, even if they aren’t typically “morning people,” which in turn affects their ability to get things done.
Whether you love flowers for the way they make you feel or the way they look on your dining room table, they clearly are a great addition to your
