Popularized during the Victorian Era, the Language of Flowers expressed the giver’s sentiments towards the recipient.
In that era, flowers adorned nearly everything. Today we enjoy vintage décor, china, jewelry and stationery bearing beautiful images of flowers – conveying messages.
Women would wear flowers in their hair, men in their lapels and it was quite common to give a bouquet of flowers to a loved one or to a friend giving wordless expression

With this in mind, I was thinking of the meaning of the flowers that are adorning my garden this early spring.
Daffodils represent chivalry, crocus=represent cheerfulness and gladness, iris represent faith, wisdom, promise in love, wisdom and valor and hope, Christmas Rose/Helleborus represents relieve my anxiety and snowdrops represent hope.
It is such a lovely thing – to ascribe meaning to the lovely flowers that grace this earth – especially if they’re meant to express love and cheer.
I think I would like to learn more about flowers, flower combinations and their meanings.
