    I ask you, is it right to murder poor defenseless flowers for the sake of a pretty window or table setting? What did a flower ever do to you to deserve such cruelty?

    Two words: Asexual Reproduction. Lucky bastards.

    I've honestly no clue if you're joking. If not, then my real answer would be "because they can grow back"

    Because they look prettier than weeds or sticks in centerpiece or bridal bouquet.

    Not in years. They have this annoying tendency to die. I mean, what's that all about? Don't they know who I am?


    Oh, maybe that's why they die.:frown1:


    I knew a woman a few years ago, she would become livid when presented with flowers.

    How can they grow back if they're stuck in a vase? So confusing.

    Well the way I look at it most flowers sold are cultivated specifically to be sold. If people didn't buy them then they would never get to show their pretty heads.

    Barbra Streisand got upset when Neil Diamond did not bring her flowers.

    Wouldn't she expect Eric Flower to bring her flowers and Neil Diamond to bring her diamonds?
