How do you show your love, to your loved ones, family & friends? What about the ones that live further afield?
A lot of my closest friends live far away and I don't get to see them as much as I'd like. It's difficult on special occasions or even when they're going through tough times, to be there for them as I'd like. I like to send little cards to let them know I'm thinking of them. And I've been known to send flowers too.
Do you like receiving flowers? For me, it depends who they're from.
When I'd receive them from my ex-partner, I always thought it was a cop-out; he'd regularly pick some up from work on special occasions because he couldn't be bothered to make any effort and put any thought into anything else. But when I receive them from a friend or family member that lives far away, I LOVE the fact that they've personally chose and purchased flowers online for me! Such a lovely feeling!
A recent survey found that Northerners are more likely to buy flowers than Southerners. What do you think of that? Being from the Midlands I'm staying well out of that debate ;)
What is your favourite flower?
Apparently 83% of people associate the classic red rose with 'love'. I do like to receive red roses as a token of love. However, my favourite flowers are tulips. I love different coloured tulips in the Spring time!
In Columbia, they have a special day to mark 'Love and Friendship'. Groups of friends gather together for dinner or drinks for a 'Amigo Secreto' (Secret Friend) event, similar to Secret Santa. I love that! Sending flowers to loved ones is also a popular way to mark the day.
While in Korea, they celebrate love and friendship every month! The 14th of every month is a celebration of friends and lovers. For example, May 14th is 'Yellow Day' where couples buy each other yellow roses! Cute.
Fancy telling someone you're thinking of them? Why not consider a flower delivery from Flying Flowers?
I think we should have a special friendship day here too, don't you?
Make mine tulips... just for future reference! ;)
