Today when I received a special bouquet from FloraQueen I was reminded of a quote which is one of my favorites.

Although it's often been attributed to e.e.cummings, it actually appears in Hamatreya, by Ralph Waldo Emerson. A slight misquote, its meaning taken out of context is quite different than in the poem.

The full line in the poem reads: 

"Earth laughs in flowers, to see her boastful boys

Earth-proud, proud of the earth that is not theirs; 

Who steer the plough but cannot steer their feet

Clear of the grave." 

Out if context it's a light and cheerful image, warm and fuzzy even. In context, it's an illustration of nature's supremacy, mocking the arrogance of a humanity which thinks it holds dominion over earth-an immortal force created long before we existed and will remain long after we've gone. I definitely find the quote more interesting with the nuances of meaning the poem presents, and I still feel it's a cheerful pick me up as flowers are. 

To me "The Earth Laughs in Flowers" is a reminder to pay attention to fleeting instances of beauty and to appreciate what I have when I have it. Because as Emerson points out, the nature of life is transitory. Life and the people that bring joy to us should be celebrated.

I enjoyed receiving my bouquet so much I'm going to show my mom how much I appreciate her with a beautiful arrangement of flowers and chocolates from FloraQueen.

FloraQueen started selling flowers online in 2002 and over time realized that sending flowers to your loved ones is actually sending a message escorted with a beautiful bouquet of quality, fresh flowers or an amazing gift. 

Their mission has grown from sending flowers into sending messages of care and love, messages between people who trust them to deliver their gifts with care and punctuality. They turn any day into a special occasion! Whether you wish to send a bouquet of flowers or a gift to say "I Love You," "Happy Birthday!" Or "Thinking of You" you can count on FloraQueen.
