The Language of Flowers: Combinations to Say What You Really Mean

Have you ever read The Language of Flowers?  It is a sweet novel that will appeal to anyone who has ideas about living a charming life as a florist but who also loves a good story. I recommend it.

As valentines day approaches, and in the spirit of the book, I think it is fun to think of messages that can be sent with flowers.  Maybe not traditional messages, but ones with a bit more nuance.  Sending messages through flowers was a trend among Victorians but ever the rebel, I tend to feel inclined towards more modern messages.  Something that would make your average priggish late-1800’s lady flush.

Here are some of my ideas… do you have any combos of your own?

    LOVE THIS!!! I really think people need to step away from the typical giving of roses …. I do love roses, but give me some wildflowers and I find it so much more special. I have never thought about the meaning of flowers and found the info so interesting! Love it! Might have to look up my favourite flowers and see what they mean 🙂 And will look up your recommended book too as it sounds like a delightful read.

    I love this and I love going that step beyond just grabbing a bunch of flowers from the local supermarket, but really thinking about what message you want to convey. Thanks for sharing.
