Flowers express our internal feelings,
Priceless gift given to someone special
Wrapped in new colors when love begins,
On such occasions sends a message of good will.
Country style flowers may take time to handpick,
Emotions in personal thoughts allow you the choice,
To reach love ones with the right bouquet,
Flowers can do wonders to help surprised voice.
When you attempt the task and think you’re too late
Take a moment and order the flowers,
Sitting at home or on the phone they will compensate
Services rendered with gratitude and memories.
Reach in time the requiem for a final journey,
Aspects of our minds stay within living confines
Flowers create inspiration of our personality,
On mothers day the blossoms finds modern verities.
Because it can show your love on different occasions,
Valentines symbolism of weddings and elegance
Flowers stand out from the crowd for graduations,
Take flowers if you want celebrate birthday and romance.
