Flowers

As I have mentioned before I am an avid watcher of the T.V. show Bones, in this latest episode a form of communication through flowers was highlighted.  At least it was to me. It has been included in the show, briefly, before and sparked a little interest in me. I know from research into wedding practices, which I did before my own wedding, that in the victorian era tons of information could be gleaned from the flower a gentleman presented a lady with. I have now been married for 7 years and don’t remember the specifics, plus all my research was wedding focused.  This information is all over the place on the web so check it out if you are so inclined. Every list varies and there are modern as well as ‘original’ meanings.  To complicate this language of flowers even more, the color of the individual flower can change the meaning as well. For instance: a red rose can mean sincere Love, Respect, Courage & Passion while a yellow rose can mean joy, gladness, friendship and “I Care”, and a redtipped yellow rose can mean friendship, falling in Love; according to http://www.shabbir.com/romance/rosemean.html.
