Please Don't Misunderstand Me!

I have a great old book about the language of flowers. In Victorian times you had to be a little careful about what flowers you sent in your bouquet!

What a fun book! It's really interesting to see what different flowers meant.

I've always loved the old Victorian meanings of the flowers. I wish it was still in fashion. It looks like you've found a delightful way to possibly make that happen. ;)
