Bouquet recipe: Agape, for universal love

Agape: universal love

Agape is unconditional love; an all encompassing, selfless type. This love is also seen as universal kindness, a yearn for wanting the best for other people, nature and the world as a whole. The ancient Greek philosophers believed that this love always surrounds us.

The Agape bouquet

In an Agape bouquet, every flower – from clematis to delphinium – is welcoming. As an inclusive form of love, this bouquet is also open to other species, like fruits, like Gomphocarpus fruticosus.
