Do Flowers Really Have a Language?

I recently read, The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh I loved it! Talk about moving, the main character moved in and out of the California foster care system enough to fill her own address book. The one constant that remained was her thirst for knowledge of plants and flowers. The references used to write the book and the history of flowers and their meaning date back to the 1800’s. While I love getting flowers, arranging flowers and having fresh cut flowers in the house I have never really given much thought their meaning or using them as a means of communication when you send them. I don’t want to spoil the story in the book but suffice it to say if you are intrigued by our website, if you have joined the move or are thinking about it then I hope you go out and buy a bunch of daffodils. They represent new beginnings. If you never read the book or any reference material on the language of flowers I have at least added to your repertoire with the meaning of daffodil. I challenge you to brighten someone’s day by inspiring them or get inspired yourself.
