Flowers are an indispensable attribute of any holiday. This is a beautiful creation of nature, which is impossible not to enjoy. The heady aroma of roses is so rich and slightly sweet, light and barely perceptible smell of lilies, and these fragrant field bouquets, how you can not love them. It seems to me that everyone likes flowers, especially women, and this love is understandable. Indeed, there are so many of them in the world, very different, from delicate girlish daisies to elegant adult roses and very unusual prickly cacti.
But now, when it has become so fashionable in the world to fight for the conservation of nature, how can we afford to decorate, for example, a huge banquet hall with fresh flowers.
