It's a wonderful gift, specially if it comes from your beloved. Orchids was the kind of flower my boyfriend used to send me for my birthday. During four or five yeas he bought it for me. Afterwards he decided it was better to buy something else, something worthy like jewellery or clothes I like. When I got married I chose for my wedding a beautiful bunch of roses. Its colour was soft and brilliant. My husband has not bought flowers for me anymore since then. I has been given other gifts but I miss those orchids...

What a stunningly beautiful gift of heaven! I mean what else could be more desirable to a girl or a woman? Unfortunately, however, I've never sent flowers to a girl i like yet, despite to my mother on mother's day! What a pity! So as far as I can see, I really need to win a girl in order to send her flowers! :) Tue 19 Jul 2011 20:04:35 GMT+1 vivienne0209 http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/general/expressenglish/2011/07/110714_ee_flowers.shtml?page=86#comment43 I am very happy to get flowers when my birthday.It's a happiness thing for a girl.many people will admire me!

I would love to receive flowers but my husband told me they are expensive. So, I hope one day he will give me a beautiful bouquet of flowers without thinking about the price. In my original country in South America, most people give flowers for an anniversary or for funerals. In the country of my husband, in Europe, some men give flowers and some others receive. In my country is unusual that men receive flowers, the give flowers but they don't receive.

Small, great, of clear or dark colors, the flowers for me are always beautiful, and I feel happiness when somebody gives a flower to me. Also it enchants to me to have the opportunity to give them, already that the people generally like of this type of gifts.

Whenever something to celebrate occurs, my boyfriend surprises me with the most artistic bouquets. It's a real pity that such beautiful coloured scented flowers are not going to last forever! Infact the only thing I don't like when I'm given flowers is the unpleasant smell as they start fading.

I know given flowers is meaningful, but I think flowers are more beautiful in natural. you don't know how to deal with the bouquet when you get one, it would waste a bunch of beautiful flowers.

She made it herself and gave me as a birthday present. Never had I received flower from anybody, I took a photo as monument. As well I made a card with this photo and sent to my friend as token card of our friendship. Flower will fade but our friendship will never end.

Here, in Brazil, it's common gift someone with a beautiful bouquet of roses. I like to receive violets, orchids and even delicate wildflowers. My town has all the avenues flowering, even in the winter, because our mild climate allowing year-round flowers.

But still, I usually feel really happy when I receive them, because just taking care of and looking at them relaxes me. But the way I feel about the flowers I’m given actually depends on the person who gives them to me. One time, I got a red rose from a guy who I just wasn’t interested in at all, and I felt really awkward...

For example, chrysanthemums are given to Buddhist altars, which are related to death, heaven etc. (so please don't send them to expressing thank you to your friends!!)The culture of giving flowers is common here, I think. On mother's day, children give carnations to their mothers (though on father's day, fathers are not given particular flowers, or even worse only thanking letters...)

My favorite flowers are red and white . it is because red flowers are symboles of love and white means honesty and friendship so when i buy flower to someone els , it would be either white or red. I do not like to give some yelow flowers because it is not my favorite colour .

I like to give and receive them. I have a small house on the inside with a beautiful garden where I grow roses, bouganvilias and orchids. There are 09 different colors of buganvilias. See them bloom is wonderful! It is not necessary to win them, see them it is as a gift!

Flowers (especially rose) represent the love. So most men give flowers to represent their love. I think flowers can attract the women's mind and whether they like the flowers or not, they can imagine that they get the awareness of their sweeties. Actually, as a man, I don't like flowers in a romantic way and I won't feel much romantic when I receive some flowers from someone.

A great aspect of this, is that kind of gift embellishes any environment.I live in South America and isn´t usual that men receive flowers. But some of them like this present.

Furthermore, that depends of whom, i'll be proud if that is a relative. However, i can give flowers to someone in a great event of his life.

Anyway, when it occurs it means to me that I have been a gracious hostess for my friends, or a loving mum for my child and a woman whose husband is still in love with after quite a long time.It's not necessary that the flowers be expensive orchids or something like that. As a matter of fact, a bunch of wildflowers or a daisy from the garden is nice enough for me, even if a bouquet of two dozens of roses is always welcomed of course !

Just like the girl said in the video, flowers are a romantic gesture. Every girl loves romance. Furthermore, flowers also mean greeting to me. Being given a bouquet is a lovely thing. However, how to deal with the bouquet received is a big trouble to me. So, in my opinion, I prefer one decorated flower.
