Where young people bloom, so does hope!

Currently there are hundreds of ways to express ourselves but, the love for flowers, and the ability to express oneself through them, is one of the most beautiful ways to grow and learn.

The language of flowers

Flower language, also known as floriography, was a means of communication used in Victorian times. Back then, people drew upon different types of flowers and flower arrangements to send coded messages in order to express and make known feelings that otherwise could never be spoken.

As every flower lover knows, flowers have a language of their own. In ancient times, flowers were a distinct way to express gratitude, appreciation, hope, and many other feelings that could not be said and, since then, the language of flowers has been transmitted from culture to culture and generation to generation. Today, one of the only vestiges that still remains through time is the meaning of red roses, which as many know, are related to love and passion.

Over time we have learned to give a meaning to each flower based on its texture, color, fragrance, and appearance. For example, the yellow rose indicates friendship. Amongst others, the white rose symbolizes a mixture of feelings; the daisy means purity; the carnation, nobility; the lily, innocence; the gardenia, joy; the chrysanthemum, eternity; the sunflower, adoration; the white jasmine, kindness; the red chrysanthemum, I love you. But, in addition to the variety to which it belongs, the color of a flower also has a message to give. White flowers are like diamonds, they represent purity, elegance, and calmness. Orange flowers are the flowers of self-confidence and self-improvement. Red, is the most exciting color and can mean love, passion, action, and aggressiveness. Blue flowers are enigmatic, mysterious, and have a sentimental connotation. Green is a relaxing and refreshing color that induces serenity and harmony. Yellow flowers represent youth, energy, vitality, and happiness, sunrise, and the beginning of life. In general, each variety and each color say something, and it is this language that allows us to express, today, more than one feeling with flowers.

When we are young, it is difficult to find the right way to say what we feel and how to project our emotions making it strenuous to bring forth interpersonal relationships.

The perspective of time makes us value the capacities, abilities, and talents that, with daily effort and the right conditions, end up flourishing. Feel empowered to handle adversity and flourish again after having suffered.
