In our daily life, we have a preference for flowers over thorns or even plants and their fruit. Why is it so? What is so special in flowers, while they wither away much faster than a plant or thorns?
A flower is liked and loved for its three inherent qualities. First of all it is soft, delicate and soothing in touch. One loves its silky petals and even tries to feel its smooth silky surface on one’s face. Secondly, a flower is beautiful and charming to look at irrespective of its colour. We have almost all colours in different flowers and they are loved for their attractiveness. Even a flower of rose has many colours–pink, red, yellow, white etc.
Romantic English poets like Keats and Wordsworth have sung praises of the fragrance of flowers in the lap of nature.
