The Language Of Flowers
The Language of Flowers - Flowers have been used as a way to convey messages for thousands of years, but it was popularised by the Victorians. Plants and flowers were used as a means to convey coded messages, often between lovers. Armed with floral dictionaries they would exchange small bouquets or Tussie-Mussies.
The way in which flowers were presented could alter their meaning. For example, a flower presented with leaves on its stem expresses afirmativley the sentiment of which it is the emblem. Without leaves it has a negative meaning.
There is much written about the subject, and I find it fascinating. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
