The Meaning of Flowers


Flowers in my life

My entire wedding bouquet was made of roses. The flowers were lush and in varying shades of lilac, purple, white and cream. My bouquet looked and smelled amazing. It was huge and beautiful.

I didn’t want to put it down. I had the bouquet pressed and framed. It still hangs in my house today. Every time I see it, I am reminded of that amazing day.


My husband used to send me flowers on almost a monthly basis. It never gets old. In fact during our anniversary week, he had flowers delivered to me daily leading up to the day of our anniversary. Tulips, roses, lilies and more. They smelled and looked amazing. I was thrilled.


Meaning of Flowers

Flowers are something that are fairly inexpensive yet can have significant meaning. Do you know what your flowers mean? My favorite, the red roses mean love and my second favorite, the pink roses mean perfect happiness.

Together, they look amazing! However, I am pretty low maintenance when it comes to flowers. I pretty much like anything as long as they don’t make me sneeze. I even have my own vases.
