The Meaning of Flowers

Flowers are meaningful to us. They light up nature and the deep recesses of our mind.
If you love somebody what do you give them on special occasion? Flowers!
If you really love somebody what do you give them for no reason at all ? Flowers!
If you want to make somebody happy for the rest of their life, what do you give them? A Garden!!!!!
