A Happy Gift, To Give as Well as to Get
For a woman in love, is there anything more breathtaking than the sight and fragrance of a red rose? Actually, you don’t even need to be a woman in love! Though preference of blossoms may vary from person to person, there is little doubt that everyone likes the sight, smell and touch of a bloom. These are the most beautiful features of the wonderful world of plants, and boy don’t we all love them!
While they serve a very vital role as far as nature is concerned, for us mere mortals, a bunch of brightly coloured petals joined together to form a blossom, and a bunch of blossoms joined together to form a bouquet brings nothing short of pure happiness. And what better act to indulge in, than to bring joy to another?
Those of us who engage in flower delivery do just this. They bring joy to others, especially to those who receive them, while those who gift them also glean a enormous amount of happiness. Joy is in the giving, they say.
Flower delivery in Melbourne CBD is a precise activity though. It is important that each blossom be in the perfect stage of bud or blossom, and this depends on the variety thereof. That they be perfectly fresh is a must. That they have no sign of wither is also mandatory, as those little brown patches that creep down from the edge of a petal can change the beholder’s entire mood. No bloom should be crushed or pressed. No stem should carry soggy leaves.
And it’s not only the stars that are important. Don’t forget the support group; of ferns and foliage and baby’s breath and sprigs of lily of the valley which add volume to a bouquet. These too must be crisp and fresh. Getting these from field to florist is in itself a task. It’s a bigger job though to get them in the same cheerful condition to the florist’s window. Some, such as the long stemmed roses exported from Kenya to UK must take this journey very swiftly; sometimes within the space of just 24hours of being harvested. For your flower delivery needs, Queen St Flower Co provides beautiful arrangements.
And all this, in the name of bringing joy with one of the most simple and sincere gifts in the world, which is universally loved and cherished. Small wonder then, that man has attached significance and messages to various blooms; and, especially in the case of the Queen of them all, the majestic Rose, each of the colours that it comes in has a meaning all it’s own; from love and friendship, to a tear-jerking goodbye.
