Flowers Speak

One night (or two nights?) after I received a very special bouquet, I played around with my siblings. Looking crazy. Hehehe.

I'm a flower addict. It is actually one of my weaknesses. Give me any flower, even a chain of sampaguita, and I will do nothing else but smile.

For me, flowers are like letters, e-mails, or text messages--they tell what one's heart wants to say. Here are the close-ups of some of the flowers and their meanings.
Grrrr. I don't like Tatay's cam. Dull.
