Famous Songs About Flowers

Flowers are regarded by many as the world's natural works of art. When you consider how magnificent some of the world's most beautiful flowers are, it's easy to see why. This is why there are some works of art that are entirely based on one or more flowers. Flowers and art can be brought together in a variety of ways, including painting.

Music is a great way to incorporate flowers into the mix because it is also considered an artistic form of expression. To that end, there are a slew of songs out there that are either about flowers or use flowers as metaphors to convey a message. The following songs are the focus of this article:

Ace of Base – Life Is a Flower

This is yet another song about flowers, and it comes from the Swedish pop group Ace of Base. This is the same band that brought you the fantastic Dark Clouds. This song was written with the intention of focusing on the more positive aspects of life. As previously stated, the beauty of flowers is so amazing that it is frequently compared to and described as art.


Ace of Base wanted people to realize that the glass of life is not only half full, but also a beautiful glass. Flowers are included because they are known for their ability to make people smile. This is especially true for bright flowers like sunflowers, which are known for their incredibly cheerful disposition.

Seal – Kiss from a Rose

This song, which was released in the mid-1990s, is a smash hit that has sold over eight million records worldwide. Seal is a British singer who performed the song. Aside from the incredible record sales, the song has won a number of awards. Many people who were familiar with Kiss from a Rose at the time were curious about the motivation behind its creation. It's an incredibly beautiful song, so it's no surprise that fans were curious. Unfortunately, Seal never went into great detail about his motivation. Instead, he stated that the song was inspired by a relationship, which also served as inspiration for the lyrics.

This is a song that sticks with you because it was featured on the Batman soundtrack for a long time. Seal, unbelievably, did not believe in the song when he first recorded it. He was initially disappointed, but he eventually decided to have it released. The rest, as they say, is history, as the track is one of the reasons he became as famous as he did.

Bon Jovi – Bed of Roses

This song stands in stark contrast to the Hard Rock and big hair culture associated with the late 1980s, when Bon Jovi first became a household name. Bed of Roses was one of the songs on Bon Jovi's Keep the Faith album, and it was the album's best-seller. The album was released in 1992, but due to the song's success, it was released as a single the following year.

This song was just one of many that exemplified the band's more mature sound. This song is considered long by today's standards, clocking in at over six and a half minutes. Jovi was always regarded as one of the best songwriters of his generation, and this song was written in a hotel room while he was hungover and missing his wife.

Poison – Every Rose Has Its Thorn

This is a song that grew far bigger than the rock band Poison could have imagined. In fact, this is widely regarded as the band's number one hit, and the statistics back this up. Bret Michaels, the band's lead singer as well as a songwriter, is credited with writing the song.

After spending the day watching women mud wrestle for his attention, Michaels performed this song on Rock of Love to show his sensitive side. The song, which was written in a laundromat, has a country feel to it. Michael's girlfriend at the time was an exotic dancer. He dialed her number and was very upset when he heard a male voice in the background.

After writing and singing the critically acclaimed song, he went on to explain that the rose represented the band's growth. The thorn represented the idea that his continued success had an impact on his relationship. In any case, everyone can appreciate that, while the song is realistic, it is also sad.

Conclusion

Not only are flowers beautiful, but they also embody a slew of characteristics that makes them perfect representations of various feelings and happenings in the world. This is the reason that there are so many songs about flowers that you can enjoy. Even if the message isn’t entirely about the flower, there is some metaphor used that makes the flower relevant. Four of these songs were covered above, and they are known worldwide as some of the best.

Flowers Have A Significant Impact On Health

Flowers Have A Significant Impact On Health

Flowers and plants, as we all know, are natural healers. Our blooming friends hold the keys to a better mood within their delightfully delicate petals. They can also have a significant impact on our health by reducing stress and assisting us in finding peace of mind. What's the science behind it, though? Is it really as simple as putting a full vase of flowers on your table to calm your nerves?

 

Colour Therapy

We all associate different colors with different emotions: red can connote love, anger, or danger, while yellow is typically associated with joy and sunshine. Blue is associated with calm or sadness, while green is associated with safety, which could explain why having a lot of leafy plants around creates such a relaxing atmosphere.

Furthermore, each of us has our own personal relationships with colors, which can evoke happy or sad memories and influence our reactions. Choosing the color of your flowers suddenly becomes a bigger decision than you anticipated! Of course, it's also an excellent opportunity to elicit a specific emotion or feeling in the recipient of the flowers.

Flowers can help you sleep

Sleeping well is essential for overall health and well-being. The scent of lavender has been shown to lower your heart rate and blood pressure, allowing you to unwind! The more relaxed you are, the more likely you are to fall asleep. Other flowers, such as Gerberas, can help you sleep by increasing the oxygen level in your room at night. Orchids absorb carbon dioxide during the day and release oxygen at night, so keeping these flowers on your nightstand can mean restful sleep.

Fresh flower evokes memories

Smell is one of the most powerful senses, capable of eliciting immediate memories. With just one flower, the strong scent of a rose or a lily can fill a room. Choose flowers or bouquets that remind you of happy memories from your wedding, family members' favorite flowers, or a special occasion.

 Flowers can help you heal

A recent study by the American Society of Horticulture looked into whether plants have a therapeutic effect on surgical patients. What were the outcomes? Flowers can actually make you feel better physically!

 



The study involved 90 patients who were divided into two groups: those who had plants in their rooms and those who did not. Patients who were exposed to flowers and plants had lower blood pressure and heart rates, lower pain ratings, less anxiety and fatigue, and more positive feelings and satisfaction with their rooms.
Flowers are not only beautiful, but they also help to heal and nurture!

Flowers can make you more productive

Plants in offices have been shown to improve brain performance and encourage creativity in studies. Sparse, clean offices may appear impressive to passers-by, but they provide no visual stimulation for those who must spend the entire day there, potentially lowering productivity.

 



It isn't just workers who are affected. Plants in classrooms and lecture halls have also been shown to increase attendance in studies. Plants, it turns out, can make you happier and more attentive, no matter where you are!

Parade Of Flowers For Halloween

Who hasn't heard of the Halloween tradition? Every year on October 31st, the streets are overrun with ghoulish monsters, repulsive zombies, ghastly ghosts, good-natured friends, and trick-or-treaters. Every house and building turns off their lights to summon the world of darkness, while children in a parallel world dance the night of horrors away.

 

 

Flowers and Halloween flowers also play a role on this special night, albeit in a more subtle way, in shades of orange, red, and dark colors purposefully chosen to evoke the feelings typically associated with this feast. Girls dress up in costumes, adorning their hair and skirts with flowers, in order to appear both feminine and zombie-like.

 



Chrysanthemums, flowers associated with tragedy, gerberas, and roses are transformed into unique Halloween decorations. They can also be used to decorate the house, bringing a sense of levity and style to the lives of humans and ghosts.

 

Yellow, red, and white flowers, for example, can be used to decorate doorways and porches by arranging them inside traditional Halloween pumpkins as if they were vases. And instead of the usual sweet treats, why not give trick-or-treaters a colorful and fragrant flower?

A Few Advantages of Having Flowers in Your Home

A Few Advantages of Having Flowers in Your Home

We're all spending more time at home these days, so why not make it more beautiful by bringing nature inside? Adding flowers to your home décor is a great way to liven up any space, and there are numerous advantages to bringing beautiful blooms indoors.

Sophy Crown Flowers understands firsthand the advantages that bouquets and potted plants can have in your home. Here's why she thinks it's a good idea to decorate your home with flowers.

Cultivate certain moods 

Your home sets the tone for your day and can have an impact on your happiness and outlook on life. You can control your mood by surrounding yourself with flowers that cultivate the mindset you desire.

 



“When I see a bouquet with a softer palette, it makes me feel calm and serene, so it lowers my stress level,” says Sophy Crown. “I prefer soft pastels because they are relaxing to me. I also like white flowers because they have a calming effect and create a peaceful environment. Bright colors are energizing and can really boost your energy, making you feel exhilarated and happy.”

Depending on the room, you can change the color of your floral arrangement — soft neutrals for a relaxing bedroom, or bright accent colors in the dining room to encourage lively conversation.

Flowers are natural conversation starters 

Choosing floral arrangements that reflect your personality allows you to stand out while also serving as a natural conversation starter in your home décor.

“I am a big fan of cymbidium orchids because of their shape, beauty, and color, as well as their longevity,” Sophy Crown says. “They are a statement flower that stands out from the crowd, elegant and statuesque to the point where even a single stem is a talking point.

Add a sense of intentionality to your space

 

 

A bouquet of fresh flowers completes any room and can even make the space feel staged for a showing. Choose your indoor flowers with care to achieve the desired aesthetic. Sophy Crown, for example, adores peonies' soft petals and almost translucent colors for their ability to calm down a busy décor space and tie competing elements together.

You’ll feel more in touch with nature 

There are numerous advantages to bringing a sense of the outdoors into your home. People are more inspired than ever before by nature and how flowers and plants can bring them closer to nature, enhance their environment, and create natural ambiance.

Bring large potted plants into your living room or use hanging baskets to hide a window. You'll benefit from the fresh, filtered air they produce, as well as the mental health advantages of being outside.

Keeping large plants in your home, on the other hand, can give the impression of more space. A natural environment in your home can make you feel like you have more space and are a part of nature, which is very enlightening.

Elevate your mood 

When you're surrounded by beauty, it's difficult to have a bad day. Flowers have been shown in studies to improve our mental health by eliciting happy emotions and even positive social behaviors.
For example, one Harvard study discovered that even one week of decorating with a fresh bouquet made participants feel more compassion for others, experience less worry and anxiety, and develop fewer feelings of depression. Best of all, these effects lasted for them while they were at work, even when there were no flowers in the office.

Positively influence your sense of smell 

Scents are a multibillion-dollar industry. Who doesn't enjoy lighting candles and diffusing essential oils from time to time? However, if you want to enjoy fresh floral scents in their purest form, nothing beats flower bouquets in your home.

Flowers have a distinct and wholesome scent that can be both uplifting and pleasurable. Every flower has a natural scent, but some have a more provocative scent that is truly unforgettable. Because your sense of smell is linked to memory, if you smell a specific flower while you're relaxed, you may feel the same relaxation and calm when you recall that scent.

Sophy Crown Flowers recommends a bouquet of lilies, roses, hyacinth, garden roses, peony, oriental lilies, freesia, lily of the valley, gardenia, or honeysuckle for their fragrance potential.

Get the satisfaction of caretaking 

When your world shrinks down to the size of your home, caring for plants within it provides a lot of satisfaction. Pruning, watering, and fertilizing potted plants gives you something to concentrate on every day. As Sophy Crown points out, having a room full of healthy plants that are only there because of you is rewarding.

Add a pop of color 

 

 Flowers are a great way to change things up if you've been wearing the same outfit for too long. You can add a pop of color to neutral spaces like bathrooms with a bold-hued bouquet, and you can change the color scheme every week.

Bring flowers into your home for beauty and a better mood 

 

 

Bringing flowers into your home, no matter what your goals are, will provide you with a plethora of health and happiness benefits. Consider incorporating some into your home today, and your living space will benefit as a result.

For versatility, mood-lifting potential, and the ability to make a big impact with a small investment, this all-natural décor is hard to beat.
