Growing Flowers Naturally.
Jackie French (Dennis Jones andamp; Associates)
have deep roots in the human psyche. Flowers make us think of love, passion,
harmony, peace, plenitude, beauty. Flowers are perhaps the most powerful - and
omnipresent - of all human symbols. We carry flowers to friends in hospital, at
a baby's birth or at a funeral; brides wear garlands of flowers or carry
bouquets; flowers can be pinned on the lapel or on the ankle - or lovingly
placed in a vase to bring their power indoors. Flowers are one of the few
seasonal harbingers we still keep with us - even if they are simply from the
florist we pass on the way to work. Daffodils in spring and roses in summer,
the season of chrysanthemums for Mother's day or gladdies at Christmas. Flowers
are at least a hint of the world of nature out of doors.
