10 Most Beautiful Flowers in the World


"Flowers are the music of the ground. From earth’s lips spoken without sound."
Edwin Curran

If someone asks me, “Which is the most beautiful flower in the world”? I would rather ask him, “Is there any flower which is ugly?” Because whenever I listen the word, “FLOWER”, the first thing that clicks to my mind is the beauty and delicacy. To me the world’s most colorful, scented and beautiful thing is a flower. According to Luther Burbank, “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.”
Out of 400,000 species of the flowers in the world, there are some flowers which are not as delicate and fragrant as rose, but these are only few. And there are many…many flowers which are close to rose in delicacy, colors and even in smell.
