The language of flowers

Nature and man

Man has always had a privileged relationship with nature; first of all it is its fruit (although too often it tries to make people understand the opposite by trying to control and govern it, unfortunately not having yet understood that this is very simply impossible), but above all nature (as an entity) is what it created , apart from us, also everything we see and therefore our whole world. For this reason nature must be respected but above all it must be lived on the waves of an objectively privileged relationship, given that nature has created everything with which we can live. In fact, man has always been fascinated by everything he sees naturally, letting himself be taken by the beauty of a sunset or a landscape, being fascinated by the scents that a field of flowers can emanate, or at the same time from those colors and that harmony of shapes that only nature can create, while we only replicate. Well, for this reason also plants, which are one of the most beautiful products of nature, have always fascinated and bewitched us, given that many times we are really taken by them and we take care of them all our life from beginning to end.

The flowers

We like many things about the plants we see, but above all else there are the flowers, which in themselves have a very practical task (in fact they supervise the reproduction of the plant, protecting the reproductive organs and at the same time attracting – with their perfumes and colors – the insects that must help the spread of pollen), but in the imagination of man they have taken on a very romantic role, given that human beings have always loved giving flowers on important occasions, deciding independently and spreading in also based on unwritten popular culture of specific meanings for each flower. It seems strange but it is absolutely like this: there is the flower of love and passion (the red rose), that of jealousy (the yellow rose), that of friendship (the yellow and red daisy) and there are many others. , reaching the flowers used for condolences or in any case to accompany the places where our deceased loved ones rest, and which are usually white, lilac and purple chrysanthemums. Obviously we try to assign a language to flowers because they have to express a thought, and this is, if nothing else, the basis of language: on occasions when words are not enough, there is the flower …

The language of flowers

But then, if flowers replace words, is there really a real language of flowers? Yes, and it is a language made up of simple and short concepts, but incredibly expressive and direct. Above all, what we express with flowers is always sincere, because they have the extraordinary power to involve only those who really feel it. In fact, we could also decide to lie with words, express something we do not feel, but not with flowers: once we love a person, we want to wish them a nice day or show them our sorrow for a bad occasion, well then if we decide to use flowers to express ourselves, it will certainly be a sincere thought. In short, the language of flowers is a language that comes directly from the depths of what we think, made up of symbols, but if we think about it, even words are symbols; in fact it is not that the word “table” is the actual table, it is an association that we have made. The same happens with flowers, only they are able to excite us like nothing else, and also to help us when the word is not needed, is not there or is not suitable.

Lack of words

But when does the language of flowers actually replace the verbal language we currently use? Saying it like this is not easy, even because if we are not in the situation it will be very difficult to understand it. But the typical situations are those that concern the deepest feelings, one above all love: when we are in love and either we do not know how to express ourselves with the loved one or we want to surprise her with a simple but effective gesture like little else, well that’s where it intervenes. the flower, because actually the word could do very little. The same happens when we want to make people feel closeness to a person dear to us who is going through a difficult period; in these cases the words are always superfluous, because in any way we try to express ourselves it will always be difficult to guess what, how and when to say it. Flowers, on the other hand, through their never intrusive and always sincere language, manage to make themselves loved, to communicate, even when those who should receive the message are not in the right mood to do so. Even if you want to take the flower and place it on the table without reading the message, the moment will certainly happen when you smell the perfume by chance or you will see a particularly enchanting shade, that’s where the thought will certainly run and the message will be received. as often not even words can do, in an incredibly simple way.
