We don’t know where the allure of blossoms comes from, but I think we can all agree that it is universal and undeniable. It may be that flowers represent to us the most appealing and accessible aspects of nature: all the beauty with little of the danger.

As such, I think the true power of flowers is that they remind us to enjoy every moment of beauty and happiness as we encounter it, no matter how fleeting.
