National Water a Flower Day
National Water a Flower Day is celebrated on May 30 of every year. National Water a Flower Day is a yearly reminder to show our flowers how much we appreciate them for their beautiful colors, their fragrant blossoms and their medicinal, or sometimes lethal, properties.
“The more often we see the things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin
History of National Water a Flower Day
The inventor or creator of National Water a Flower Day is still unknown. The Flower is the reproductive part of a plant which produces seeds. Plants that produce flowers and fruit are called angiosperms. There are nearly 300,000 species of angiosperms, and their flowers and fruits may vary significantly. Fruits and flowers are among the most useful features for identifying the plant species. Many modern cultures recognize flowers attractive, and scholars have been fascinated with flowers for nearly thousands of years. Dioscorides, the first-century physician of Greek, wrote the most influential early book on plants, De materia medica. It was the first text about the medicinal uses of plants, and it contained many diagrams of plants and their flowers. The book helped other physicians to identify the kinds of plant to prescribe to their patients for a particular sickness. De materia medica remained an essential reference on botany (the study of plants) for more than 1,500 years. Hence National Water a Flower Day gives us an opportunity to care our gardens.
