Some flowers demonstrate love; yet others represent loss or friendship or have become a symbol of peace. Whether we like them or not, they are everywhere and that’s a great thing.
Providing homes for insects and birds, to pollen and nectar for bees and other species, flowers are pretty freaking powerful. Without them, our world would be much drier – as plants release water through their leaves through a process called respiration – and much less flavourable.
Fruits and vegetables we are used to seeing today would be gone, and the animals that rely on those fruits and vegetables, like cows would also go hungry. So, basically, flowers are kind of a big deal.
Here’s a mini “hommage” or tribute for these quiet beasts.
