FLOWERS






The flower is God’s finest workmanship in the world. It is his finest gift.Their sight is a joy forever. They are a subject of poetry and no Natural description is complete without reference to flowers. 
Their beauty is sung by some of the best poets of the world. The sweet scent of flowers makes the atmosphere fresh and pleasant.

In their range of colour, size, form, and anatomical arrangement, flowers present a seemingly endless variety of combinations. They range in size from minute blossoms to giant blooms. In some plants, such as poppy, magnolia, tulip, and petunia, each flower is relatively large and showy and is produced singly, while in other plants, such as aster, snapdragon.

The main purpose of flowers is to aid in plant reproduction. Flowers provide an eye-catching attribute to an otherwise plain, green-leaved plant. When insects, birds and some bats dip down 
to take a look at the flower and steal its nectar, they are inadvertently pollinating the plants by moving pollen or plant sperm from the male stamens to the female pistils.

The basic parts of a flower include: 
The “Calyx”, also called the sepals, whose function is to enclose the bud in a proper place while it is in the blossoming stage. These are often green in colour. The “Corolla”, also called the petals, whose purpose is to attract the insects for the process of pollination. 

A wide range of coloured petals of different flowers enable the attraction of insects which help in the pollination.  Also, these petals are the parts due to which the flowers smell sweet.
Flowering plants usually face selective pressure to optimize the transfer of their pollen, and this is typically reflected in the morphology of the flowers and the behaviour of the plants.

Pollen may be transferred between plants via a number of 'vectors'.
Some plants make use of abiotic vectors — namely wind anemophily) or, much less commonly, water (hydrophily). Others use biotic vectors including insects (entomophily), birds (ornithophily), bats (chiropterophily) or other animals. Some plants make use of multiple vectors, but many are highly specialized. 

Flowers are sold in the market. They are used for decorating houses, temples, and are allude in weddings and festivals. In our country India, worshiping God is not complete without flowers. 
We offer flowers to God for his blessings.  Flowers are thus, a source of income also for many people.  They sell them in various forms of attractive garlands and bouquets and make their living.Also on a greater scale, import and export of flowers are done all around the world. Businesses are also being carried out through on-line sites, where buying and selling flowers has become convenient for both customers and florists. 

Besides, that flowers can uplift anyone’s mood by their presence,  flowers can also soothe our taste buds with their deliciousness? Yes, there are more than 100 types of flowers which are edible and using which you can make many appetizing dishes. Using flowers like roses, dandelions, clovers, violas, Lavenders, Hibiscus, and many others, you can make some of the best lip-smacking dishes, beverages, and desserts. A lot of studies even proved that flowers have healing properties as well. Presence of multicolored flowers can produce joyful impact on people’s mind.  A garden or a park full of different flowers is the best place to spend some quality time. If we are worried or depressed, we can see how these flowers impact our moods. We feel relaxed and refreshed sitting in the park or garden with flowers blooming around.  

Also, flowers are an integral part of many cosmetics that are being  used by women. Nowadays, flowers  are also being used in spa and therapeutic clinics to make feel rejuvenated and lively.
