Cultural practice of wearing flowers every day

flowers in hair

What if our culture had a custom where everyone wore a flower every day–including to work and on the weekends. People would wear the flower(s) on their shirt, in their hair, or maybe around the waist. (Men, too). We might have a brighter, happier culture to see that every day on every one.

But what would happen to all our gardens? Would they get picked over? If there was a high demand for flowers, we’d have flower shops as common as fast food places. Wouldn’t it be awesome to live in a city that has flower shops everywhere?

Flowers would be so ubiquitous that there would be more gardens. This may sound obvious, but the thing with flowers is that you can grow them. It’s not like you have to manufacture a shirt. Not everyone can create shirts to wear (I mean, I guess everyone could make shirts, but it’s not nearly as easy as growing flowers. Instead of watering and slaving over lawns of grass, what if everyone had gardens. Like, everyone!)

Wearing a flower every day wouldn’t be wasteful if more flowers are grown. Or maybe I’m wrong, maybe it is wasteful to spend all that water on a garden only to pluck it off to a daily death. Whoa. this blog post took a turn. I don’t know if I have anything more to say about this, do you? If so, please leave your thoughts in the comments. Thanks!
