   A woman is a mystery which men can not solve for centuries. But as most representatives of the fair sex believe, they do not need to be solved – it is just enough to love and to take care of them. It already became a wonderful tradition to give women flowers on the International Women's Day. What do we know about flowers? They are beautiful plants that accompany a person at all stages of his life. Different kinds of flowers have different symbols - confession in love, manifestations of loyalty, friendship, respect, and even memory. Cultivating and growing flowers began more than 4 thousand years ago in Egypt. Flowers have their own symbolism.
Rose is a symbol of love, hyacinth means sadness, poppy is youth and beauty, peony gives health and longevity.
