Love alone is one of the most powerful of powers that has shaped the course of human history and made it what it is. It cannot be suppressed or tyrannized by any other power. It is a relentless force that never ceases to matter. Most importantly, love is an emotion that binds two people together for a whole life, something that perhaps no other thing in this universe can.

Manifesting Love

Love might be an abstract emotion but it has to be manifested in order to gain strength just as words are meaningless unless said. Love needs to be manifested as well. It needs to be shown outwardly in order for it to have any effect. Over the years many symbols have emerged that stood for the portrayal of love, there were several gestures too. Flowers have been associated with love for a long period of time. Flowers are a constant symbol of love and affection that is always greatly appreciated, in almost all the cultures across the world. They are a favourite among the ladies as well.

Flower as a Symbol

When it comes to relationship, dates are important as well. The important dates need to be remembered and celebrated. These include birthdays, anniversaries and other important events. Anniversaries especially are special occasions to commemorate the love which has bound the relationship together for so many years. And no anniversary would perhaps be complete without the gifting of flowers on anniversary.

Anniversaries and Relationships

Anniversaries are the big milestones of a relationship. They make one remember the commitment that one has made to a relationship that has made it last for the time that it has. There are different flowers that are recommended for commemorating the different stages in a marriage. One might of course go ahead and choose one that he likes. But different flowers speak differently.

Years of Marriage

The second year of togetherness is to be celebrated with a gift that speaks of the constant love that is embedded in one’s heart and that time has had no effect on it. The flower known as Lily of the Valley is usually chosen to represent this phase of the relationship, in which no matter what is going on around the world, nothing has changed between the two lovers.

These flamboyant flowers should literally liven up the occasion.
