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. How could it be otherwise, with such inclusive love?
