There was a reason the original Valentine poem was full of flowers and sweets. It was a classical tribute to love and adoration. “Roses are Red, Violets are Blue…”
Fresh cut flowers sure make a noteworthy gift for the one you love most, but in addition to being a cliché choice, they are cut from their roots and not propagation friendly, so their delivery means fleeting beauty and an inevitably quick demise, destined for the trash. Because of this and our love of plants and our planet, we believe the best solution is a potted pick. At Siam Clay we have the perfect collection. Try a cactus for something edgy and fun, a cascading string of hearts, or a bright and colorful Bromeliad Neoregella. Whatever your partner’s plant preference, be sure to gift it with a gorgeous Thai inspired pot for a finishing touch to last Valentine’s celebrations for years to come.
Here are a few poems to transcribe and share alongside your green gifts this Valentine's Day.
Cactus Poem: “I(You) will not be another flower, picked for my(your) beauty and left to die. I(You) will be wild, difficult to find and impossible to forget.” -Erin Van Vuren
String of Hearts Poem: “The sweet strains of music, the way it has always pulled on my heartstrings… It cannot compare to the way your love moves me and shifts my very heart until it settles as close to yours as possible.” -A.M Ream
Bromeliad Neoregella Poem: True Love
“True love is a sacred flame That burns eternally, And none can dim its special glow Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones And hears with gentle ear, True love gives with open heart And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands It neither rules nor binds, And true love holds with gentle hands The hearts that it entwines.” -none su
