Floriography

It’s Valentine’s Day.  I often wonder about traditions.  Today I’m researching flowers and why we give them to our loved ones on this special day.  I found the term “floriography” on Martha Stewart’s beautiful website.  It’s a tradition started in Victorian England when flowers were delivered to express a love interest to a lady fair.  I found the photo I’m featuring above on a site that talks about the flower artistry of Rebecca Louise Law.  Ms. Law adorns the most unusual places with flowers!  Can you imagine the glorious fragrance?

I love this bouquet in a heart shape!  Colorful and capable of being dried and preserved to be enjoyed for years to come.  Somehow the flowers don’t seem to wasted in this form.  I hate watching cut flowers wither and fade away.  It’s always so sad when it is time to dispose of them.  This bouquet can live on!

I also love unusual containers!  Isn’t this a lovely arrangement?  The more unique the combination and presentation the better!  I hope you’ll enjoy and celebrate love today and everyday!  We don’t have to wait for February 14th to send a message with flowers!
