Speak The Language of Love With Flowers

Have you ever pulled the petals from a daisy, one by one, while reciting “he loves me, he loves me not……” until only the yellow, button-like center remained (and you had your answer)? As if by some powerful magic, flowers seem to know the secrets of the heart.

Flowers Know The Secrets To The Heart

With Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s interesting to note that flowers have always been associated with romance, well before human beings first started pulling their petals off… even before we noticed them, for that matter.

Red RosesConsider: Flowers are the reproductive mechanisms of the vast majority of the plants on earth. They exist solely to assure the procreation and propagation of their species by distributing pollen and dispersing seeds. Consequently, they have developed a wide range of seductive characteristics designed to lure their would-be pollinators.

Virtually everything that we find appealing about flowers the shape, the fragrance, the color, the texture evolved as a means of effective flirtation with an animal suitor. All of those alluring properties that speak directly to our own hearts, spoke first to the birds, bees, bats, and butterflies who are the vehicles of floral lovemaking, carrying potent grains of pollen from virile anther to receptive stigma.

There is even a certain species of orchid whose flower parts very closely resemble the female of a particular kind of wasp. When a male wasp spots it and buzzes in for an “intimate encounter”, he unwittingly gets himself dusted with pollen before he flies off, frustrated, in search of another paramour. You get the picture. Love can be a tricky business.
