~ FLOWERS ~ AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE ~
Many individuals in the throws of a love affair choose to express
their devotion with gifts of flowers. When choosing floral gifts for the object of your affection, keep in mind the symbolic meaning associated with the flowers you select. While you can send any blooms you wish, choosing blossoms with deeper meanings that
relate to love and affection can make it clear to your recipient that you carefully selected your flowers and express the sentiments for which you may have no words.
When it comes to expressing
love, no flower is quite as ideal as the red rose. This flower symbolizes passionate devotion between two lovers, making it a popular choice for anniversaries as well as the all-about-love holiday, Valentine's Day. If looking for an opulent love gift that
makes it clear that you are smitten with, and devoted to, the recipient, send the Three Dozen Long Stem Red Roses bouquet from ProFlowers, which comes in a beautiful ruby red vase.
Red and White Carnations
Both red and white carnations are specifically reflective of
love. Red carnations symbolize deep love, while their white counterparts represent undying devotion. Buy your lover a collection of red or white blooms or a mixed bouquet featuring both to convey your romantic sentiments. Another benefit of selecting this
floral option is that the relative affordability of these blooms will likely mean that you can buy your lover an even fuller bouquet of flowers.
When it comes to expressing feelings of love, the color tulip you select makes a major impact. Red tulips represent
undying love, expressing the fact that your love has no limit. Yellow tulips, on the other hand, symbolize hopeless love, making them a bitter-sweet love flower. A yellow tulip gift shows the recipient that you love him without logic even though the feeling
may not be reciprocated. For a simplistic love-themed floral arrangement, send the Tulip Kisses mug from ProFlowers, which features three red tulips placed in a heart-adorned red mug that reads "Let it Grow."
For young lovers, the primrose is the perfect
option. This flower is specifically representative of the sweet innocence of young love. Gift your recipient with a potted version of this plant that she can place in her room or on a desk, allowing her to look upon it daily and reflect upon the romantic relationship
in which she is engaged.

Rose – A Beautiful Expression of Love on Valentine's Day
Flowers are a beautiful symbol of expression. They are a true representative of all emotions related to human nature. Thus, flowers are an indispensable gifting idea when it comes any occasion which celebrates
our heartfelt emotions. And especially so when the occasion is the one celebrating one of the most alluring feelings among all of human emotions, love. Therefore, it is but natural that flowers have become an integral part of the occasion of Valentine's Day since a long time.Though there are many varieties of flowers like daisies, irises, daffodils that can
be gifted on Valentine's Day. But, the rose wins hand down when it comes to popularity and relevance as far as the occasion goes. The word rose has come from the Latin word rosa meaning red, and the flower has been a symbol of love since ancient times. Rose
was supposedly created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers. Rose is a blossom with a sensuous fragrance and delicately yet beautifully crafted petals. The colour of a rose is a silent communication of the feelings that are being conveyed from the receiver
to the giver. A bouquet of flowers is a small cluster or arrangement of flowers. People even gift bouquets of different colour blossoms to mark the emotions that dominate an occasion.
The most popular flower on Valentine's day is the red rose. Reasons for the same are two-fold, one is that the colour red represents love, and all lovers gift each other a red rose irrespective of the occasion. And, Valentine's Day is the day of
love, so the natural choice has to be a red rose. The second reason is in relation to the mythological significance of red rose, it is the favorite flower of Venus - the Roman Goddess of Love and Beauty and this also makes it the perfect choice to be given
to someone you love.
