The Secret Language of Flowers
Did you know that Lily of the Valley can be used as a tonic to help calm and strengthen the heartbeat and was prescribed to men returning from World War One as a restorative tonic? While bunches of daffodils, ever immortalised in that Wordsworth poem, have come to represent goodness and forgiveness.
Flowers have been used as a means of communicating feelings and emotions, at many different periods of history, by many different societies through the ages, with each flower having specific meanings and values. In this illustrated book Samantha Gray delves into these meanings and significances, bringing out a whole secret language behind many of our varieties of plants and flowers.
