    The Secret Language of Flowers

    The Secret Language of Flowers
    Whisper sweet nothings without saying a word.



    Have you ever heard a sunflower speak? A carnation chatter? A tulip talk?
    There may not be such a thing as a talking flower, but they
    communicate all the same. In fact, they've been used for centuries by
    lovers who wished to send messages to their sweethearts.
    In
    the Victorian era, lovers exchanged flowers to express risqué or raw
    feelings that were not considered proper to talk about in social
    settings.
    Flowers really are the language of
    the love. Their sweet aromas, delicate petals and vibrant colors make
    them an easy way to express love and adoration.
    While
    many flowers carry a traditional message, such as red roses conveying
    the message of "I love you," you don't have to follow standard customs
    when you present a bouquet to your beloved. Next time you're giving
    flowers, consider what they're saying, or be spontaneous and make up
    your own meaning by attaching a card or poem.

    Hi Myriam,your post is very nice since I think that no one knows the different definitions of flowers. I liked the " ORANGE BLOSSOM :
    Innocence, Eternal Love, Marriage and Fruitfulness"
