Who doesn’t like flowers? I am afraid there won’t be a single body that would dislike a fine looking, delicate misty flower. Some smell divine, some may not…& there’s such an array of beautiful flowers all across that looking at them ardently itself is such a mystifying joy.

Most commonly rose is everyone’s favourite, but I love the pure, fresh, white and intoxicating tuberose, also known as “rajanigandha”, meaning “scent of the night”. Pansies, Orchids, Marigolds, Carnations, Daisies, Daffodils, Lilies, Tulips, Sunflowers, are some of the other beautiful and effervescent, fragrant blossoms that stand out exquisite and remain irresistible definitely for many of us.

However one must be careful while selecting flowers to give away, as specific flowers…their colors, hold some significance behind it and the belief may differ from region to region. For instance…Rose as known to all is a symbol of love while recently I learnt traditionally in Hawaii, tuberose is used to create Leis, and was considered as funeral flower in Victorian times.
