    Your post has taught me that there are a wide variety of flowers to choose from that can best fit any occasion. A luscious red tulip as a sign of one’s true love, vibrant sunflower that symbolizes new hope are some of the well-known flowers used to express such feelings. I’d like to give you two big thumbs up for listing the less popular flowers such as gerberas and birds of paradise.
