Mother's Day is right around the corner and for flower lovers it is a fun time to pick out flowers for our mothers that truly express the message we are trying to convey. There are popular, or should I say, more commonly bought flowers that are given to mothers on Mother's Day. Carnations, tulips, and roses are just a few of them. However, just because they are common does not mean you are bound by having a floral arrangement just like everyone else's nor are you bound to just sending flowers on Mother's Day; any day, week, or month of the year is a great day to express your love and gratitude to your mother. The name of a flower and color can help you express just that.Numbers with flowers do not necessarily convey a stronger message although in some cases it can speak volumes. With a single flower, you can express to the receiver that you think they are considerate and thoughtful, yet a single long stem red rose can express love and affection. Therefore, it is not necessary that numbers bind you either. Giving someone three flowers is to reflect respect, whereas five flowers show affection, and seven express love. Yet, once again, a single long stemmed red rose can also express love.
