“A flower is not a flower alone; a thousand thoughts invest it.”
Daffodils signal new beginnings, daisies innocence . Lilacs mean the first emotions of love, periwinkles tender recollection . Early Victorians used flowers as a way to express their feelings—love or grief, jealousy or devotion. Now, modern-day romantics are enjoying a resurgence of this bygone custom, and this book will share the historical, literary, and cultural significance of flowers with a whole new generation. With lavish illustrations, a dual dictionary of flora and meanings, and suggestions for creating expressive arrangements, this keepsake is the perfect compendium for everyone who has ever given or received a bouquet.
