My Fascination with flowers
Since childhood, I have been drawn to flowers like moths to fire. As a youngster I would pluck any flower that held my attention, no matter how many times my parents reprimanded me for this embarrassing habit. Well, it was embarrassing to them; to me it was an immense source of joy. But unlike other kids, my mother tells me, after plucking the flower I used to very carefully keep the flower with me even after it dried.
Growing up cured me of this quirkiness. Now, I love to look at flowers on plants and can very well restrain myself from plucking them, but they still fascinate me. Instead of plucking them, now I try to read and inform myself about flowers and their fascinating lives. I write about them on my blog and try to compile information on these sources of joy.
I also like reading about flowering plants.Recently, I read this very clever book by Carol Klein, who has categorized plant into such groups as "the Cinderella plants" or "shooting Stars" based on their habitat or certain characteristics. The pictures in the book are beautiful and I just loved the way the authors have used some of the characteristics of the plants for grouping them.
Flowers are a boon in this ever complicated, ever busy life of man. No wonder they say that one should stop and smell the roses. I feel, a beautiful flower has this amazing power, like a young toddler or a baby, that can make you hold your breath and stay enchanted for a few moments in which you can forget the hurries and worries of the daily life.

You put into words, very well I may add, just how so many gardeners feel about flowers Alfa. Each one that blooms is a small miracle and you just have to stop and take a look at the sheer beauty they dispay.
I agree of all of you..
