On most romantic occasions like valentines and anniversary, a bouquet of roses are given to the girls. Why roses? I don't know. I guess it enhances the romantic ambiance for some reason.
Personally, I don't really like roses. But my Chinese name is related to rose. It's translated as, as beautiful as a rose. Sometimes I feel that my Chinese name resemblance me in a way. I'm not trying to praise myself by saying I'm as beautiful as a rose, but everyone knows that roses have thorns. Those who directly pluck a rose from a rose bush, well, if not carefully done, they will get scratches, or get hurt. So, I believe that, I'm a rose with thorns. From another perspective, thorns are a kind of protection as well. It can hurt somebody but at the same time it's to protect itself from being hurt.
Although most girls like roses, I like daisy the most. Just found out that it's scientific name is called Asteraceae. Don't ask me how to pronounce it. I have totally NO IDEA. And also, I just only knew that sunflower is under the same category. Oh my. My favorite flowers are daisy and sunflower. Love them because they are so colorful, and i love colorful things. It makes me happy when i see colorful things.
See. Aren't they pretty. =)
