Spread the Love, Decorate the World, Join in the Flower Show

February 14th is the Valentine’s Day Flower Show! It’s almost here!

“But, What Is It?”

Simply put, it is US! On February 14, dress your profile as a flower, and take part in the Show!

“But, Why?”

Well, there are plenty of reasons. Here are a few possibilities:

  • Because it’s fun.
  • Because flowers are pretty.
  • Because it’s Valentine’s Day, and there’s someone you want to send flowers to.
  • Because it’s Valentine’s Day, and you want some flowers for yourself (and let’s face it, you deserve them!)
  • Because you like real flowers, but the Valentine’s nonsense will have driven the price up by 300%.
  • Because online flowers won’t spark your allergies.
  • Because you have a viciously competitive streak and you’re hoping to show up all your friends with the most awesome display.
  • Because you’ve grown all these great bouquets of flowers on your Farm, and you’re just dying to show them off to your friends who aren’t addicted to the game… yet.
  • Because it’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere and you’re sick to death of gray and snow and ice and cold, and you want a little taste of springtime.
  • Because it’s so darn hot in the midst of Southern Hemisphere summer, and a little springtime sounds kind of nice and refreshing to you about now.
  • Because it’s oddly fascinating and kind of cool to look around the community and see people all over the world sharing with you in this experience passed tangentally from person to person and group to group.

If none of those work for you, make up your own reason. Your reason for taking part is just as good as anyone else’s!

“But, How?”

Gosh, you are just full of questions today, aren’t you?

Well, actually, that’s a fair question to ask. To take part:

1. Select a flower image (following the usual rules about formats, ownership rights, file sizes, etc).

    How should you choose? Any way you want! Maybe a flower you grew in your own garden. Maybe one you took a picture of while away on vacation. Maybe a famous work of art that you enjoy with a floral motif. Maybe one that reminds you of someone you love, or maybe one in memory of someone you lost. Maybe just one you found somewhere, that you thought was pretty, or is your favorite color, or is your birth-month flower. There are a million ways to pick one, and a billion pictures to choose from out there. Hey, it’s your entry, make yourself happy! Or dedicate that picture to your Special Someone, and make them happy. It’s all up to you!

2. On Feb 14, set the picture as your default profile picture.

    If you have a profile on Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo, Twitter or any other socialish networky site, you’re welcome to join: change your image, profile or avatar (as the case may be) and spread the word. Yes, that’s right…

3. Pass the word along!

    One measure of a successful Flower Show is the volume of flowers it encompasses. (Quality is of course not an issue, because naturally you are all of Very High Quality indeed.) So let your friends and connections know what we’re doing! And as you travel through the ‘nets that day, visit the pages of other people who’ve decked themselves out to share in the Show!

Oh, this is going to be awesome! I can’t wait to see what a gorgeous garden we make together! I can’t wait to see our Flower Show come to life!

Spread the word, invite your friends, and let’s make the internet bloom!
