Let the flowers say it for you!

Pictures and words can never encompass the grandeur of Roses when it comes to declaring your love or thanking a friend.

Flowers have been long used to convey our feelings to others. They are the language of love and their colors have a significant impact on one’s behavior and reactions. People interpret your feelings and thoughts by the colors and by the kind of flower you are giving them. Just because red roses are more familiar to you or more popular doesn’t mean it’s okay to give it to a friend or someone you want to befriend. They might get the wrong impression that you’re in love with him or her when in truth you only want friendship.
