People give flowers to express emotions. You might give someone flowers to show that you love them, especially on special occasions like a first date, a wedding anniversary, or Valentine's Day.
A bouquet of flowers can also say "I'm sorry," "get well," "thank you," "good job," or express sympathy for a loss.

People have used gifts of flowers to express emotions for a very long time. In ancient Greece and Rome, some flowers were associated with gods and goddesses, and therefore with their dominant qualities.
Emperors, heroes, and winners of ancient Olympic games were crowned with a wreath made from certain plants.
During the Victorian era (the 1800s), "expressing feelings in words was not considered good manners," so "people demonstrated their feelings by giving flower bouquets." There were strict rules about giving flower gifts, and flowers of various types and colors had very specific meanings.
Even children can pick wildflowers from parks or their own backyards to give as gifts. But what if you can't pick flowers where you live? Draw them instead!
