A word a week Challenge: Flower

Sue from A word in your ear has ‘ A word a week’ challenge. The word this week is ‘flower’.

In India, not only are flowers appreciated but also venerated to a great extent .  Besides  being used for decoration and  offered as a symbol of love and friendship, flowers also have a spiritual significance in Hinduism. They are used to worship Gods at home and in temples not only on religious occasions but also for the everyday puja. Women adorn them in ther hair- some wear them on special occassions like a  wedding or a puja and  some women , specially in the South, wear flowers in their hair every Friday as it is considered an auspicious day.

My favourite flowers are the Frangipani  and Jasmine for their divine fragrance and  Geraniums and Hibiscus are they are fairly easy to grow 🙂
