"When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other." ~Chinese Proverb
Some people believe that flowers can talk. Silently they express the thoughts and feelings of the flower giver. Giving flowers to a special someone for Valentine's Day is a no-brainer. Who doesn't want flowers? Flowers are joy-makers!
The history of giving your loved one Valentine’s Day flowers comes from the old-fashioned custom of sending floral bouquets to pass on non-verbal messages. Introduced in the 18th century by Charles II of Sweden, each flower had a specific meaning attached to it, making it possible to have an entire conversation using only flowers.
Today, people continue to send flowers on special occasions or to express sentiments of love, friendship, and admiration.
The type of flower given sends a message to the receiver.
