Since I was a child I have always been exposed to flowers. Since setting up my own home I try to have fresh flowers in my apartment all the time. Most men resist the inclusion of flowers in their life as they feel they are too feminine or they will tarnish their masculine reputation.
Waking each day and seeing flowers always make me smile. Different flowers remind me of different occasion and times in my life. Lilies in my apartment always remind me of my grandmother, while hydrangeas remind me of my mother.

Understand their origins, if they are Dutch, bring tulips when they are in season, if they are English bring them roses.
