“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭12:27‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Flowers are truly an expression of the miracle of nature. In their short life, they bring Love into our mist. We often express love, peace, hope, kindness, comfort and joy with our gift of flowers.

Different flowers have meant different things to various cultures over time. For example, the lotus has spiritual significance to some Eastern religions. The rose often represents true love. Whatever the case, flowers can often help elicit very positive effects.

Bluebird of Happiness

The Iroquois tradition says that they ward off the icy power of Sawiskera, the spirit of winter. They were originally coined the “bluebird of happiness” by Maurice Maeterlinck in his 1908 play. Even modern songwriters have portrayed bluebirds as muses. Some believe they bring messages from angels and the spirit world. Whatever the case, they are beautiful and like many things in nature, bring joy to our hearts. Don’t forget to celebrate National Bluebird of Happiness Day on September 24!
