Shoot. I’m not even that fond of pink and I think these are pretty! And I think the red ones are bromeliads. Here, we call them exotics and sell them for lots of money in the grocery stores – especially for father’s day, since they’re apparently considered a flower a father can appreciate without being thought “girly”. (The American merchandising establishment is so silly.)
The American merchandising establishment is just trying to grab your hard-earned money from your pocket. In my opinion, usually they do a good job. People are buying things they really don’t need our of peer pressure and a blitzkrieg of ads.
