I discovered the Bird of Paradise flower at my local floral shop. Looking for something contemporary and out of the ordinary, I fell in love! The color exuding such warmth and aliveness. Bird of Paradise symbolize several things . . . a protector flower, flight to dreams, uncharted territories, personal paradise. And a magnificence and joy. Like a bird who is free to soar in the skies, the flower also represents freedom and liberty. I'm in.
