I picked this flower from the different sets of fresh blooms displayed in the office each week. Instant flashbacks:
- My Japanese hair.
- Before attempting to count the petals, I had to refresh my memory about the parts of the flower. I was not so sure if the pretty little pieces at the middle are still petals or are the pistil’s stigma.
- On a lighter note, it reminded me of the little girls who play with each petal with “he loves me, he loves me not…” Anyway, I haven’t tried it. Though I wish I did. Had I tried, maybe I selected a flower with the fewest petal (which one?) or the one like in the photo, depending on my appetite of prolonging the agony (read: knowing the results). We know that there’s no truth in it. But it’s funny how at some point one’s innocence is entrusted to the petals for decision making.

it doesn’t matter how many petals the flower has as long as the last one is “he loves me”.:p

67 total — 18 B, 28 M, 21 S petals — sorrounding the 22 mini-petals of the pistil.
I’m just kidding. I didn’t count.
But yes, like most people, I too played the same love me-love me not game. (Disparagingly used santan flowers which were a plenty in our school during my elementary days).

Lol. Natawa ako bigla dun sa line na he loves me, he loves me not. Hindi ko rin yan na try. Kasi naman pag in love tayo lahat nakakalimutan sa kilig.
sandali, bibilangin ko lang. LOL
