Image Plants and Their Relationship to Human Emotions
By Larry Rettig on September 29, 2010

In a previous Cubits article I explored with my readers one kind of relationship we can have with plants, that of likening flowers and flower parts to objects we’re familiar with in the real world. In this article, I’ll explore ways in which flowers and plants evoke emotional responses.

A very beautiful and informative article, Larry, thank you.

It's nice to know that others have deep rooted connections to favorite plants.
(That was an intended pun, of course.) I have so many plant stories, so many emotional responses to them, I could write for years and never cover them all. Bet you could, too.

Right you are, Sharon. I could branch out in a number of different directions with this topic, including another willow story. Puns aside, I thank you for the nice compliment.
