The Language of Flowers Part 1

In Victorian times floriography, the art of sending messages using flowers, was quite popular. Entire dictionaries were available and mothers taught their daughters the language of flowers. The meanings vary from source to source so I picked the most often used meaning.

Daisy- innocence

Ferns- fascination

Roses- love, unity
I'll be adding more to my floral dictionary throughout this month as the flowers come into bloom in my garden. At the end of this series I'll share my directions for making a tussie-mussie so you can send a message with flowers!
