It is more than just a plant that grows in landscapes and yards, it is a symbol of love. I remember when I was little and saw a patch of wildflowers, I would race to pick a whole bunch of them and give them to my mom. What is one gift that is a traditional symbol of love? Flowers, you say? Yes, that is true.
When I was a child, in elementary grades, my mom had me do some flower studies. We would go outside and find flowers, whether we knew what they were or not, and bring them in the house to see if we could find the name of the specimen from the many field guides we had lying around our house. We would then press them, laminate them, and/or dissect them. For added assignments, we would read the Flower Fairy books by Cicely Mary Barker.
As we got into our Junior High/High School years, we learned more in-depth about flowers, with Biology 101 and some experiments. We learned about Vascular and Non-Vascular plant systems, about how you can tell it a flower is a male or female, and much other cool stuff!
