Hi there all of you Garden of Eden Flower Shop (and chocolates and gifts) fans! We’d like to welcome you all to our new Feature Flower Friday! Each week, we will be feature a different type of flower, the meaning behind them and the reasons you would give or present them to someone else. Join us this week, as we cover the lotus flower! The lotus flower is a beautiful, aquatic flower that has religious ties dating all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. In many cultures, the flower represents peace and life, but the Victorian tradition has placed some other meanings to this flower as well. While there are multiple religious meanings for the lotus flower, some of the commonplace meanings include that of patience, purity, and self-awareness. Of course, the lotus flower also symbolizes a devotion to religion and spiritual well-being. The natural ability of the flower to lose and regrow blooms on a daily basis means that this flower can serve as the perfect personification of “rising above challenges.” No matter who you think the lotus flower would be great for, know that the Garden of Eden Flower Shop is here to help. With several different kinds of fresh flowers available daily, we are sure to have just the right one to fit your needs. Stop on in today and see what we can do for you! Enjoy your weekend!
