A flower is not a flower alone; A thousand thoughts invest it'

All over the world, including Ireland, flowers are an integral part of human culture whether it is the perfect table centre for a wedding, a beautiful bouquet for a birthday, a message of thanks, or to pay one's respect at a funeral. But, while everyone knows that red roses signify love, few may realise that an entire language of flowers exists with every bloom, foliage and plant having a particular emotion attached, be it hazel for reconciliation, wisteria for welcome or ivy for fidelity. 

This unique language was created by the romantic early Victorians who carefully planned every bouquet and posy so as to deliver a desired message. Bringing the language to a new generation, this beautifully illustrated miscellany contains fifty profiled flowers, a dictionary searchable by emotion, and ideas for creating bouquets and arrangements for specific occasions. This gift book is a novel present that any flower lover will want to own.

A unique and thoughtful gift idea, perfect bundles with a packet of Irish Wildflower Seeds for Valentines day or Mother's Day.
