Actually it also helps alot to leave a good and delicate impression on a girl, to make her feel that she is quite important in your life.
Flowers signify pure love, beauty and peace. Different flowers express different feelings or expressions like in our society, red roses become the symbol of love, white flower symbolizes friendship and yellow flower shows hatred. No one knows where this division comes from actually, but people believe on this.
There is vast variety of flowers. In this universe there are lots of unique and diversified forms of flowers.
There is an incredible flower which grasps the attention of everyone who had seen this flower i-e “parrot like flower” in “Thailand”. The biological name of this flower is “impatiens psittacina” which actually means “parrot like”. This farfetched flower seems like a parrot. No one can believe that it is actually a flower at first sight. Many believe that it is just a photographic magic nothing more than that. Many researches had done research to solve mystery of this flower. Finally, they discovered that parrot like flower actually exists. It is the protected specie of Thailand. The plant is 6 feet in height. Its leaves are broad and sharply pointed. The blooming season is October and November. The growing condition which is required for this flower is tropical, humid rain forest and it is one of the important reasons why so few people have grown this plant successfully. Another important reason is that Thai authorities restricted the export of this flower. The Thai government has strict rules prohibiting the harvest and smuggling one out of Thailand.
In Thai language the flower is called DORK NOK KHAEW which means dok=flower, nok=bird and khaew=green. The word dok is used with the name of every flower in Thai.
These kind of unique and unbelievable things make non-Muslims believe that GOD exists somewhere who makes this inevitable flower. Watching this flower is really a delightful treat for one’s eyes.
