The Magic of Flowers
 
 
 
                                    


Flowers in the cannied wall,
I hold you out of the crannies.
I hold you there, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower- but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.”

These beautiful lines on flowers are given by Alfred Tennyson. Flowers which are amongst the best things of life are the best creature by nature. according to me if there are no flowers then there is no life. Flowers are the most beautiful part of nature. They are one of the most important part of our nature and to give them more importance DDA organized a flower show in Japanese park in Rohini(Delhi). Their fragrance gives us the feelings of heaven. Flowers have become very popular amongst the people. Flowers are also used in worshipping God. Flowers gives us a kind of feeling of the heaven. “I don’t think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell. I have been looking at it. I know the beauty of our Lord by it.” This excellent thought was of Gerald Manely Hopking. If we can explain these lines then only we would be able to know what is the beauty of flowers is. These 3 lines itself telling us many things. Another beautiful poem is given by a famous poet ‘Any lowell’ and the lines of the poem are:
 
Oh! To be a flower
Nodding in the Sun,
Bending then Unsurprising
As the breeze run;
Holding up
A scent brimmed cup,
Full of summer fragrance to the summer sun.
 
Flowers can be classified according to their season also. In winter there are flowers like Mariegold, Penzy, Caredulla, Ashtar, Stock, Dailia etc. the flowers for summer season are Coachia, Gramfina, Gladia, Cladium, Venka, Lotus etc. Jasmine, Raat-ki-Rani, Rose, Chandani, Champa, Tulsi etc are the annual flowers found in our country.
Bonsai is also a very famous thing in our nature. bonsai is a short version of a full tree. There are many kinds of bonsai and they are:Pine, Aerogaria, Bhogan Velia, Banyan, Pilkhan, Inu pairas etc. Bonsai is bacsically a Chinese technique.

This all is what we can say about flowers. They are the important part of our life and it is good to see that people are taking inerest in them.
