The Language Of Flowers








Flowers may be combined and arranged so as to express even the nicest
shades of sentiment.

If a flower is offered reversed, its direct significance is likewise
reversed, so that the flower now means its opposite.

A rosebud divested of its thorns, but retaining its leaves conveys the
sentiment. I fear no longer; I hope. Stripped of leaves and thorns, it
signifies, There is nothing to hope or fear.

A full-blown rose placed over two buds signifies Secrecy.

Yes is implied by touching the flower given to the lips.

No by pinching off a petal and casting it away.

I am, is expressed by a laurel leaf twined around the bouquet. I
have, by an ivy leaf folded together. I offer you, by a leaf of
Virginia creeper.
