Note that Dutch bloem click to
  hear means 'flower,' not 'bloom' (blossom) - and in a strange coincidence, the Dutch word bloem also means 'flour.'
The bouquet, bunch of flowers, that you buy at the florist is een bos bloemen click to
  hear

  hear ('florist') (blue mist?)
(het) bloemperk click to hear 2 3 ('flowerbed')
Some Dutch and English words shift from F to V between singular and plural (leaf/leaves), and some Dutch words shift similarly from S to Z, like roos click to
  hear ('rose') to rozen click to
  hear ('roses.') Do note that the 'long-O' vowel sound remains the same here despite the different number of vowels written: once you understand the fairly easy Dutch spelling rules it will be logical to you too.
