“Botanists estimate there are more than 240,000 types of flowering plants on Earth.” (Most people can recognize thousands of logos of products yet cannot identity even a dozen local plant specimens.) However, as sensual human beings, we are attracted to the majesty of each flower’s individual fragrance, color, and symmetry. Flowers are supposed to be sexy – after all, they must seduce the buzzing birds and bees into intimacy for their own successful reproduction through pollination.

In the Springtime, we rejoice at the sign of bright colors popping through the ground, and the delicate blossoms of the fruit trees waking up from their winter’s sleep. These wonders can inspire us and offer a sense of hope and feeling of happiness. Celebrate Spring!
