The flower is God’s finest workmanship in the world. It is his finest gift to the mankind.
We have seen the flowers of many kinds and to many colours. In India we see the flowers like lily, lotus, rose, marigold, jasmine and champak. Daffodils are common in the European countries. Every fruit or seed is preceded by a kind of flower. The mongo blossoms in India are seen in summer. The mustard flowers are yellow and beautiful in winter. The violets grow on the moss.
Flowers are really very soft and beautiful. They appear in thousands of colours and of mixed colours. They look very beautiful and attract our sights. There are many people who are lovers of flowers and have raised gardens of flowers. The poets sings the praise of these flowers. People compare the beautiful faces and palms with flowers. Hence, flowers are really beautiful.
Flowers are very useful too. They beautiful our garden, our courtyard and the front and back of our houses. They beautify the sides of our houses. Bees collect honey from the flowers and store it in their hives. We get this honey from the bee-hives. We make garlands of flowers for the deities and from our honourable guests. We offer flowers to our deities. We put flowers on the flower-vase to beautiful the table in the meetings. Scents are drawn from flowers and are sold for thousands of rupees. A flower or a flower-garden gives us sweet smell. Poets write about the flowers and enrich our literature.
If we smell a flower we, of course, get sweet smell, but there are some worms that get into our nostrils and do harm to us. So, we should not hold a flower very close to our nose.
Flowers are very beautiful objects. They give much pleasure to our mind. We should enjoy them from a distance as they dance upon the creepers.
