Flower Power

"When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other".
Yeah, we all have perhaps nodded our heads at this famous quote at some point of time. And for ages, flowers, with their vivid colours, forms and fragrance have uplifted our mind again and agin. That's why most people consider flowers to be the God’s greatest creation

And they are the most popular design aspect that we come across in our daily lives —be it in prints, paintings, jewellery, ceramics….  At this very moment, if you look around your house, I am sure you will find at least ten items with floral motifs. As I did…
