    Well I couldn't agree more. I always love to buy and have flowers throughout my home and studio but never had a scientific study to back me up....wheee...now I can go buy those tulips I was planning on and know that 'scientifically' I'm helping myself and my environment.

  2. Flowers are a expression of love in the now. What a wonderful way to communicate! No words, no jestures, only pure vibrating energy. The Birds and the Bees appreciate that vibration too.
