Can Flowers Talk?

February 14, 2017

"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.

 

Baby's Breath: Pure heart, Happiness, Festivity

Carnations: Fascination, Woman Love, Pure Love

Daffodil: Unrequited Love, Your The Only One, Chivalry, Regard

Daisy: Innocence, Loyal Love, I'll Never Tell, Purity, Innocence

Gardenia: You're Lovely, Secret Love, Joy

Iris: Warmth of affection, Faith, Valor, Wisdom, Inspiration

Lily (White): Virginity, Purity, Majesty, It's Heavenly to be with You

Primrose: I Can't Live Without You, Young Love

Rose (Red): Love, I Love You

Tulip: Love, Symbol of the Perfect Lover

 

The color of the flower reveals the giver's feelings.

White is for Innocence

Yellow is for Friendship

Orange is for Enthusiasm

Pink is for Sweetness

Red is for Romance

 

Can Flowers Talk?  Yes!  They can say, "I like you"  "I love you" "Thank You"  "I'm Sorry" and so much more!
