they are there, they are beautiful
they are abstract
they are a way to pay homage to beauty and life
they are reminder of death
just realized that last week, the morbid aspect of flowers. i saw a picture of a bouquet of funeral flowers..never really noticed it before.
i have always taken offense to people judging flowers to hastily. degrading them with a word like "nice" (unless it's the persons second language, then nice actually means something).
