Have you ever wondered why children find the dandelion so beautiful they will give it to one of the people they love the most – their mother. All children do this. Yet, as we get older we see the dandelion as a pesky weed – not beautiful but annoying.
We teach children to destroy them. It can be a perfect example of how we change perception. It also teaches us that beauty is really in the eyes of the beholder.
Now, I see flowers as a wonderful creation for our pleasure. Most women enjoy receiving and giving flowers as a symbol of love. Different colors – in the roses – portray different things. White – purity; Yellow – friendship; Red – love; As an author of romance I have learned the various meanings of flowers and find it helpful in writing.
One of my favorite lines in a song is from George Strait’s ‘I saw God Today’ – a flower growing out of a crack in the concrete. I can relate so well to that line.
