What do the different flowers mean?

Posted by Kerry Meier on August 26, 2013 in Uncategorized |

Every flower has a meaning! The language of flowers dates back to the days before education was a common thing.  Because so many could not read or write, people used to send each other a small bouquet to give a message to another.  Imagine secret lovers sending a hand written note and being caught out.
