Flowers one of gods great creations and wonderful additions to life.There are so many beautiful colors and shapes that it is astounding of the beauty of them all. I for one would think of what the world would be like without flowers.

Let me begin by saying that flowers has for century’s graced the tables and gardens of many a diplomat. And also our own homes and gardens. (As the old saying goes) You need to stop and small the roses)Is truly a genuine saying. For they do smell lovely. Have we realized how a little seed becomes a beautiful work of art to look at and adorn and enjoy for our own pleasure. I for one have never really appreciated the colors smells and pleasures of flowers. Until I started gardening 7 years ago. I have missed plenty of chances growing up to have enjoy these wonderful gifts from god of beautiful additions to our life which I regret. Just think of all the nature that flowers add to. Bees making there honey. Hummingbirds getting there nectar, butterflies enjoying there landing strips. Its a amazing experience to see a hummingbird up close in flight sucking its nectar and a bee pollinating on a flower. A butterfly landing on one and fluttering its wings. (ASTOUNDING) We could all benefit from Stopping and smelling The Roses:)

And a good old sniff too - sarcococca is very cheering at this time of year - it stays in flower (and scent) for ages.
