The background of National Plant a Flower Day
Since their first apparition 145 million years ago during the Cretaceous period, flowers have literally altered the appearance of the planet. Before there were blooms, the world was covered in ferns and conifers, forming an endless expanse of verdant paradise.
Flowers diversified swiftly as a result of insects and dinosaurs ploughing their way across the land. The proliferation of plant varieties and colours precipitated the emergence of numerous plant families.
Flowering vegetation are essential to life. They provide humans and animals with the sustenance necessary for survival.
Flowers have an elevating quality that captures the imagination more than anything else. Many flowers bloom only briefly, typically in the spring or early summer. Few things can compare to the majesty of flowers in full bloom, despite their fleeting nature. Perhaps their ephemeral, incomparable beauty inspired the symbolic significance of flowers in diverse world cultures.
Throughout history, flowers have been associated with beliefs and symbols. Their fragility has come to symbolise either mortality or rebirth. Occasionally, they also represent gods and deities. There is no denying, however, that flowers in full blossom are a universal symbol of happiness.
In Europe during the late 1800s, a novel concept regarding flowers gained popularity. These exquisite flowers became a means for people to express their emotions. Through flower arrangements, the unsaid could be articulated. As soon as codebooks are created to decipher the language of blossoms, communication will be simplified. A field clover, for instance, signified “When can I see you again?” A red rose petal signified ‘yes’. Green flowers indicated the recipient has a heart of stone!
The era of intricate flower codes has long since passed, but flowers continue to bring pleasure and significance to our lives. It’s possible that we’ll never know who created National Plant a Flower Day. The real query is “why not?” and not “why?”
