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?

How to select the best vase for your flowers?

How to select the best vase for your flowers?

A beautiful bouquet of flowers, whether for a friend, family member, colleague, or yourself, is guaranteed to put a smile on a special someone's face and can brighten even the darkest of days. But, if you want to take it a step further, why not include a vase as well?

There are vases to suit all tastes and styles, from simple, sophisticated glass designs to brightly colored vessels, each promising to add that extra "wow factor" to your blooms.

Selecting the perfect vase for the job

 

 

When it comes to selecting the ideal vase, there are numerous factors to consider, just as there are numerous ways to bring out the best in your blooms. Here are a few key things to consider, ranging from colors, textures, and shapes to trying something out of the ordinary...

Size

First and foremost, you must select the appropriate vase size. It's pointless to try to fit a large bouquet into a small display case. Similarly, placing a smaller bouquet in an overly large vase will only make your flowers look misplaced.

Colour

Consider where the vase will be placed and what kind of flowers it will hold. Choose a neutral vase that will complement all bloom colors or a color-contrasting vessel, such as a blue vase for orange flowers or a yellow container for purple blooms, to ensure your flowers look their best. If you want to display your flowers in a room with neutral decor, choose a contemporary vessel in a neutral color. Choose a vase that is patterned, has a bright color, or is embellished with various decorations if you prefer a more eclectic style.

Height

As well as considering the breadth of your vase, it’s important to consider the height too. Too short a vase will cause flowers to bend over the edge of the vase or worse still, topple over. A vase that is too tall however will hide blooms, which defeats the object of displaying flowers as a whole.

Shape

Do you know the difference between a bud vase and a column vase? If not, don't worry; we're here to help! When it comes to displaying different types of flowers, understanding the shape, style, height, and breadth of your vase is crucial. A robust, short square vase, for example, is designed for shorter, wider blooms, whereas tall, slender vases are better suited to elegant, long flowers like delphiniums.

Aside from the types of flowers you have, think about the amount of space you have in your home or office to work with. A tall, light vase is more appropriate for use on a shelving unit or mantelpiece. Something more solid may be preferable when creating a focal point in the center of a table.

Traditional isn’t always the answer

Vases do not need to be identical in shape. Various vessels, such as milk bottles, jam jars, watering cans, colored bottles, and more, are now being used by interior designers to display blooms of all shapes and sizes. Don't be afraid to get creative if you don't have a traditional vase on hand.

Some key types of a vase

BUD VASES: As the name implies, a bud vase is made for extremely delicate stems, such as those with buds rather than blooms. Flowers like lily of the valley, eucalyptus, ranunculus, and gypsophila thrive in these vases.

 

 

SQUARE VASES: This vase style is more contemporary and one-of-a-kind. They are available in a variety of heights and are perfect for displaying dense floral arrangements such as violets, tulips, hydrangeas, anemones, or frangipanis.

ROUND VASES: A round vase is softer in style and better suited to those with classic tastes. Rose bouquets, peonies, snapdragons, delphinium, dianthus, tulips, alstroemerias, and gerberas are frequently displayed in these vases.
