What's Blooming Today?

In the Victorian era lovers often used floral exchanges to convey a message. I suppose you could have fun with it in this day and age too.

Species (wild) tulips popped up in the garlic chives

A mix of daffodils

Daffodils mean respect, regard and “the sun is always shining when I'm with you.”

Pasque flowers

Pasque flowers or prairie anemones in a bouquet mean “you have no claims”, unpretentious.

Hellebore or Lenten Rose

Hellebores signify scandal or slander. (Hmmmmm….)

Tulips

In the language of flowers tulips mean “perfect lover”.

Kinda looks like “two lips” in the middle.

Wild violets…sometimes look blue…sometimes purple…they grow wild all over.

Violets say “I'll always be true”, faithfulness, watchfulness.
