Flower power - hippy hippy shake. - Ian
Ian, That tumblr is in it's early days with not that many posts, but I did see your current favouriteLee Jong Suk buried away in there and looking seductive as always.
What a beautiful post, and about something I've never really made a connection between before, boys and flowers. I think the only time I have ever worn a flower was as a member of a wedding, or with formal wear. At work a year or two ago, we had a formal dance and we were supposed to wear formal wear. I have a black tuxedo and black patent leather formal shoes, I chose to wear a rose boutonniere and people raved about it, that seems to be all that they saw. A red flower against a black background, really wonderful.Lots of great photos here and on that Boys and Flower website. The valentine flowers in the red cube vase is a magnificent display, and the single flower you have here is utter perfection. The beautiful Asian boy "smoking" the daisy is just that, beautiful. On that website, there is a naked boy with gorgeous large red flowers on his head, he looks so wonderful. I am thinking from seeing these pictures that red and pink are really the best flower colors for a boy; one might not normally think that would be so!
Tom, Flowers certainly can be an addiction for some whereby they need to see fresh cut flowers around the house every few days.Perhaps you might say that it does just slightly soften and feminize boys when they're covered with flowers whether it be daisy chainsand garlands around their neck or worn like a floral crown in their hair.I remember one time when some wild flowers I had picked fresh from our garden really had quite an effect when I presented them to my Auntyin Hospital. Apparently all the flowers in the Hospital gift shop were mostly fragrant free and some were even artificially coloured, but they stilllooked spectacular to the patients. But when I walked into the Ward with my bunch of flowers, and I picked the two varieties because my Aunt waspassionate about them.I had picked several branches that were fully flowered from our white Lilac Tree as well as a few clumps of Lily of the valley. And as I walked in tothe Ward several patients AND Nurses remarked on such a beautiful aroma that these natural flowers were giving off unlike all the other expensiveless aromatic flowers spread around the Ward. My Aunt told me the following day that the flowers had an amazing effect on everyone in that smallWard and it seemed to drown out all those familiar hospital smells that you get like cleaning fluids and disinfectant. So there you go, the power offlowers. Just a shame though that with my history of Sinus problems I'm not always able to smell most things.
Ahh the flower of youth....... such sweet delights for the senses.
