Colors are exquisite and cover the spectrum in series of light, each commanding attention to its characteristic hue.
The fragrance of flowers is uniquely different according to the specific flower. The aroma is not only attractive to a human, but the scent of a flower attracts insects and birds in pollination.
The shape of a flower comes in all forms and sizes, having a basic structure common to the flower plant, but differ in distinctive features in appearance.
The sounds of a flower.... does a flower speak? Not audibly, but if you truly notice a flower, their blooms can speak volumes in their own language. Have you ever heard of "floriography"? Since botany began, flowers give meaning and symbolism through their hundreds of years in existence. Take for example, the Bleeding Heart.....
I have always admired the beauty of the bleeding heart blossom. It is a favorite of mine along with the magnificent rose. Both are indicative of love but I'd like to reflect on the bleeding heart in today's post. Its delicate beauty speaks loudly through its simplicity. No other plant has a perfect heart-shaped flower and the blossoms are considered a symbol of undying love and stand for elegance and fidelity.
Spiritually speaking, the bleeding heart brings to mind the compassion of heart expressed in 1 Peter 3:8..."All of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with one another. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted and keep a humble attitude."
The medieval name and/or religious meaning is "Mary's Heart", suggesting the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is a devotional name used to refer to the interior life and the beauties of the soul of the Virgin Mary.
If you turn a bleeding heart blossom upside down and pull the two halves apart, use your imagination and you will see a lady in a pink bathtub, or perhaps a white lyre with strings of silk. You can also press the flowers between the pages of a heavy book and use these tiny hearts in decorating letters, cards, a valentine message or create a bookmark.
