Intro ~ Flowers and Love ~ Love, Love, Love . . . It Is all About Love


This particular Hub will address those gorgeous flowers meaning love, as well as incorporating trilinea and haiku poetry along the way.


Did you know that each flower has its own meaning? I really started to think on this when I wanted to send a friend flowers. Whatever the occasion, it is suggested that one choose the flowers that will most appropriately convey your sentiments. A natural and beautiful way to express your love to others is to send flowers.


Who does not love flowers? As for me, I love all flowers. I love receiving flowers of course. I love sending and giving flowers. I love seeing flowers growing in a garden or anywhere for that matter.


Are you in love? If so, you may want to pay close attention as to specifically what each flower means as relates to love, which are written in either trilinia or haiku poetry forms.

As you will note, many of these flowers have more than one meaning, other than just some form of love.


Regardless of what the meanings of flowers are, one cannot help but to be in awe of the sheer beauty all around us. I hope you enjoy the photographs contained in this Hub, which will attest to the exquisite beauty that is all around us on this earth. Sometimes we may just need to stop and open our eyes to take it all in, and in doing so, enjoy the magnitude of such beauty, found really in just one delicate little flower.


Please enjoy!
