"Every Valentine's Day the makers and sellers of chocolates, flowers, and perfumes reap a fortune in sales because these products have become traditional symbols for love and devotion. These gifts seem innocuous enough. But imagine if you learned that the chocolates you bought or received were laced with rat poison, or that the flowers were heavily laden with toxic pesticides. Would you still eat the chocolates or inhale the aroma of the flowers, much less encourage your loved one to do so? But lovers give bottles of toxic chemicals to each other as signs of their affection yearly."

"The fact that Laurie "saw" (in her mind, Step Five) Susy's control picture as "purple and green, many circles and shapes, possibly a vase of flowers, a 'rainbow' of flowers," and Susy's drawing turned out to be a gorgeous, supercolor bouquet of flowers in a purple vase, was frankly eerier to Laurie. More interesting was what Laurie experienced when she tried to connect with Susy. Laurie heard no dialogue. No communication was involved."

"Friends from around the country, and even a few from other countries, sent him additional plants and flowers to test. However, as he readily admits, "I did not teally know what I was looking for, and so nothing I did made much sense! But I kept at it." Finally, after testing 112 plants and flowers, Peter found three that had energetically matched, or as he calls it "talked to," his own blood or saliva samples. Somehow these three plants matched the energy signature of his blood and saliva."

"First, garden flowers wither. Then wild flowering trees burst forth in scarlet and orange, the silk cotton and the coral and flame trees. Brilliantly flowering flamboyants line the sides of dirt roads, defying the ever hotter sun. By late March, the hardiest species have shed their flowers and leaves, even the golden yellow-flowered laburnum that adorns so many Punjab gardens. The sun heats and scorches as the days grow longer, drying the dew before it settles. Tinder-dry brush and woodland burst into flame, filling the dusty air with thick wood ash."

"Our caffeinated worms have been busy since we hired a guy with a small bulldozer to rip out the ragged, eighty-two-year-old turf lawn our house came with and reseed the yard with a mix of four different kinds of plants, two grasses and two forbs—one with little white flowers and the other with little red flowers. The flowers are a nice upgrade from our old lawn and we don't have to water it. Better still, the combination of four plants that grow and bloom at different times keeps out weeds. Our eco-lawn may be advertised as low maintenance, but we still have to mow it."

"The snakes and birds and the divinities of the woods and fields did him homage with flowers and celestial perfumes, heavenly choirs poured forth music, the ten thousand worlds were filled with perfumes, garlands, harmonies, and 36 Vircil. Ae.neM. VI. 8n2. shouts of acclaim; for he was on his way to the great Tree of Enlightenment, the Bo Tree, under which he was to redeem the universe. He placed himself, with a firm resolve, beneath the Bo Tree, on the Immovable Spot, and straightway was approached by Kama-Mara, the god of love and death."

"Observing how a plant reproduces reveals valuable information about its nature. Many flowers have male and female parts within the same flower, others have a male flower and a female flower on the same plant, while others may have separate female and male plants. You also may see the colorful spotted runway on the petal of a flower that directs a pollinator to the nectar that lies deep within. You will be able to see the very tiny hairs on the stalk or the sectioned veins on the leaf, unavailable for your viewing without the lOx lens."

"My stream-of-consciousness daydreaming went like this: "Flowers, blue and lavender cups with indigo stripes like antenna—pistil is completely indigo, full of busy bees. There's a dog roaming the hillside to the North, birds are singing, smells antiseptic. I'm walking on a dirt path with sandals in a white robe, like in Greece. Voices are calling; a woman is running, calling to the dog. Tastes very menthol, numbing—lots of saliva, feels so soft and sticky. There's a sensation in my head, behind my eyes. My third eye opens, stepping out of amnesia; I begin to remember with a fresh perspective."

"It was so many years ago, and yet I can still see in my mind's eye the bright orange color of her flowers and smell the strong resinous fragrance. I remember in the dream there was an intense glow as if the sun was burning so brightly that I was almost blinded. I could feel the warmth of Calendula and saw it in wave-like patterns, the way heat rises from pavement. At the time I was suffering from a wound that had become infected. Nothing I tried was healing it. After the dream I soaked in an infusion of calendula blossoms and the infection healed immediately."

"The underlying message in the television ads filled with sunshine and flowers was that prescription drugs were safe and even good for you. Some pharmaceutical companies had helped fuel the nation's epidemic of drug abuse by advertising even those products that were the most addictive, despite an international treaty that prohibited such promotion. The Convention on Psychotropic Substances was signed by dozens of countries in 1971 to limit the abuse of addictive psychoactive drugs like barbiturates, amphetamines, and LSD."

"Other ads featured Joan Lunden, the former host of ABC's Good Morning America, hiking through a field of flowers and telling viewers that Claritin had cleared her head. The marketing worked beautifully. Led by Claritin, sales of antihistamines soared by 612 percent between 1993 and 1998. The cover story in Medical Marketing £r Media, an industry magazine, in May 1999 praised Schering for creating memorable ads that were like the "edutainment" created by Disney. Quickly, another new drug, introduced in 1998, took the game to a whole new level. "Viagra changed pharmaceuticals as a business," J."

"Although the berries, leaves, and flowers all have activity, the most potent cardiac effects appear to reside in the leaves and flowers. Conclusion Despite recent advances in drug therapy for individuals with CHF, some of the most dramatic effects are still obtained with magnesium, CoQIO, taurine, and other natural substances. These natural treatments are safe, and they can be used in conjunction with conventional therapy. If the medical profession would take a closer look at these treatments, millions of heart patients would benefit."

"PHANTOM VISIONS Seeing floaters and flashes is one thing, but what if you start seeing fanciful flowers, flocks of flying birds, or frolicking ferrets that aren't really there? Don't freak out—you're probably not going crazy. You're most likely experiencing the classic signs of Charles Bonnet syndrome. In this condition, mentally healthy people see phantom visions, a form of visual hallucinations."

"Buckwheat also produces flowers from which bees make a dark, rich-flavored honey. A Serving of Food Lore. .. Buckwheat originated in central and western China and it was cultivated there in the tenth to the thirteenth centuries. The Crusaders brought it to Russia and Europe by the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. It was first introduced to the United States by the Dutch in the seventeenth century, and has been used for human and animal consumption ever since. Buckwheat hulls are also used as filling in specialty pillows for the head, body, and eyes. Where Is Buckwheat Grown?"

"It was presented to the winners of athletic games in Greece, much like we give bouquets of flowers today. The first use of celery as a culinary ingredient was as a flavoring and the earliest printed record of its use as a food is from France, dating to 1623. The Chinese also cultivated celery as early as the fifth century. Where Is Celery Grown? Celeriac variety is grown widely throughout Europe. France, Germany, Holland, and Begium are the main producers, with fifty percent of the harvest going to the pickling industry."

"Each day would offer something to celebrate: the smell of flowers from the corner store, the kindness of a longtime friend, the chance to continue to be independent despite his ailments. Focusing on the positive during each day, Adam's days added up. Three years went by and Adam was still living independently. Five years later, he and his close friends couldn't help but credit his positive approach to life with keeping him going strong. Eventually, AIDS did take him, but it was nine years after the doctors had forecast that he had less than a year to live. Adam's story is not unique."

"After he had passed safely the lions that guard the foothills and the scorpion men who watch the heaven-supporting mountains, he came, amidst the mountains, to a paradise garden of flowers, fruits, and precious stones. Pressing on, he arrived at the sea that surrounds the world. In a cave beside the waters dwelt a manifestation of the Goddess Ishtar, Siduri-Sabitu, and this woman, closely veiled, closed the gates against him."

"I look again and can read what the card says: "Showers of flowers, on your birthday and every day! signed: the Universe." I was still grinning when I woke up. Yes, it was my first, and I hope and expect not my last lucid dream. I am going to try asking out loud for a lucid dream. Lucid dreaming happens naturally to people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. If you can remember a dream?if you possess that much awareness in the dream state—then you only need to increase your awareness a few degrees more to become lucidly aware. Consider the "dimmer switch."

"Plants, flowers, and vegetables were growing in long rows against all three walls of the fence that squared off the yard from the main building. "These are my tomatoes—oh, look, I've got a ripe one! See that hydrangea over there? When I first came here, there were some as tall as me. Then somebody cut 'em down, and now they are growing back." Some people walked by and Marge waited until they were out of earshot, then said, "There are some folks in here who are 80 years old. I was out still working when I was 80.1 tell them, T'm old enough to be your mother!'"

"Other flowers, like day lilies, close up every evening and bloom again every time they see the sun. Sunlight is essential to the growth of all green plants. Plants know this. They turn toward the light, stretching themselves open to take in as much as they can. Scientists call this the heliotropic effect. A similar heliotropic effect has been described in people.1 Positivity is essential to the growth of all humans. We know this instinctively. We turn toward positivity, stretching our minds open to take in as much as we can. I call this the broaden effect."

"In the center picture, taken in Kerr's family room, his lab staff poses together sporting goofy hats—straw hats with flowers, caps with cascading pink rose petals, panamas, and fedoras. One researcher holds a stuffed Elmo to his chest. They are laughing; they exude the aura of a family. In the lab today, country music plays softly in the background. A half-consumed chocolate bar sits on a stool top. Beakers and bottles covered with aluminum foil fill the shelves of the glass and blue metal cabinets that line the walls, and a glass vase holds purple orchids."
