When A Flower Isn't Just A Flower

I have been wearing a flower in my hair since I was a pre- teen.  Every since watching Diana Ross in Lady Sings the Blues I fell in love with the look.  “What’s the matter, you don’t like gardenias?”  (line from the movie).  Yes, I am one of those people who recites the movie when watching.  J  Anyway, this past summer I went to Hawaii and of course I packed my flower stash.  I mean who goes to Hawaii without flowers to adorn her tresses?  It’s a must.  While browsing in one of the shops, they were selling flowers, as they do on all of the islands and my “play cousin”, Jewelee, noticed this and immediately brought it to my attention. 

Enjoy the clip!

Who knew flower placement was a public service announcement about your relationship status???  I never knew it was that deep.  I simply placed it wherever I thought it looked cute. J

I didn't know the way we wore flowers had special meanings. Thanks for the info.
