Fun Flower Facts
Is it ok to wait for someone to get home from the hospital before sending the flowers?
Absolutely. While patients can look forward to home's familiar, comfortable environment to help ease pain and speed recovery, recovering at home can be lonely. Flowers are a great way to let someone know you're thinking of him, even if you can't visit him in person.
I heard that flowers are good for your health. Is that true?
According to recent behavioral research conducted at Rutgers University, the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy, said Dr. Jeanette Haviland-Jones, lead researcher on the study. Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being.
