Hypertext Webster Gateway: "flowers"
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary (easton)
Very few species of flowers are mentioned in the Bible although
they abounded in Palestine. It has been calculated that in
Western Syria and Palestine from two thousand to two thousand
five hundred plants are found, of which about five hundred
probably are British wild-flowers. Their beauty is often alluded
to (Cant. 2:12; Matt. 6:28). They are referred to as affording
an emblem of the transitory nature of human life (Job 14:2; Ps.
103:15; Isa. 28:1; 40:6; James 1:10). Gardens containing flowers
and fragrant herbs are spoken of (Cant. 4:16; 6:2).
