Make other people happy

[great big story]

Some of the best roses in the world bloom in Kenya. While the country is widely known for its scenic national parks and wildlife reserves, it’s also a major flower producer. Winnie Gathonie Njonge is the production manager at Nini Flowers, which sits on the shores of Lake Naivasha. She knows all there is about growing perfect roses and oversees the harvesting of 300,000 to 450,000 a day. “The ultimate goal of growing roses is to make other people happy,” she says. It brings her joy to know the roses she cultivates are sent to the United States, Japan and other countries, spreading love and beauty all over the world. This Great Big Story was made possible by  Kenya Tourism

“In the garden, birds sing, bees hum and the flowers and butterflies bewitch me.

Every bug and beetle, petal and leaf grants peace to me in the present moment.

As I tread upon emerald blades that gently sway below crystal skies,

the garden unveils to me the philosophy of life.”  

― Amelia Dashwood

The Joy of Giving Flowers

“The history of flower giving extends back thousands of years as a way for people to communicate with each other. Ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Chinese all refer to the use of flowers in their stories and myths. The Greeks considered flowers to be particularly important and associated them with the gods.

Flowers have a therapeutic effect on us. They just make us feel good. Flowers have the power to lift our spirits.

A random act of kindness is defined as a selfless act performed by someone wishing to either assist or cheer up another individual. Anne Herbert reminds us to “Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.” Practice random acts of kindness through the gift of flower giving and reap the rewards from it!”  Read more HERE

monochromatic

adj :  having or appearing to have only one color

If everything in your room is pink, your room is monochromatic — all of one color.

In physics, monochromatic describes light that has the same wavelength so it is one color. Broken into Greek roots, the word shows its meaning: monos means one, and khroma means color. Things that are truly monochromatic are rare — examine the green leaves of trees and you’ll see lots of different shades.
