Have you ever wondered what your favorite flowers might mean and what you could be saying when you send somebody a special something from your local florist or your own garden? I have and after doing a little bit of digging I came across some of the meanings behind the beauties I love the most and the ones I like to have in my home. It was fun to see how perfectly they fit into that part of my life. For example:
The Gerber Daisy (my wedding flowers): Innocence, Purity and Cheerfulness
The Pink Peony (ones I love to gush over and admire): Bashful
Ranunculus (my favorite to have on my window sill and if I can ever get the knack at growing some I would love to give them away just to say): "I am dazzled by your charms"
Dahlia (the confusing flowers in my garden): Dignity, Instability
Scarlet Poppy (the wild flower I can't seem to grow): Fantastic Extravagance
Lily of the Valley ( These sweet little bells remind me of my Gammie and my Mother): Sweetness, Return to Happiness, Humility, "You've Made My Life Complete."
