Say it with flowers — Hitting 60…

It was during the Victorian era, where every flower began to symbolize something. It is said that because of the strict protocol of that era, feelings and thoughts were not openly expressed between men and women, leading to an elaborate “flower language” or “floriography” being developed.

I loved this article and wanted to share it with all of you, especially since we may finally see spring soon.

 

I worked in a flower shop back in Detroit many moons ago so I had to learn the customary meanings of the different flowers and their colors, but some of this I still didn’t know.

 

Many people don’t realize that colors of flowers and even the flowers themselves symbolize something, so I’m sure this will be interesting to some of you. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did.
