Papaya Flower

For this flower, I tried to give a little bit painterly look.

“Flower is happy in a vase, because vase is nothing but an ornate coffin for the flower” Mehmet Murat Ildan

Mehmet Murat Ildan is a Turkish Playwright, Novelist, and Thinker, received many awards.

Some of his  flower quotes 

“I am against the florists and floristry! Let the flowers not be the toys of our pleasures!”

“Teach your sweet child to leave the beautiful flowers in the soil”

“Flowers represent hope for us, but we do not represent hope for them! Let us keep the flowers in the soil; no plucking!”
