Description
Once a coded language of emotions, desires, and unspoken messages, flowers had the ability to speak louder than words. Today the language of flowers is as relevant as ever. They can symbolize love, regret, passion, or remembrance, and have an ability to subtly convey a message that underlines the spoken word-if you know the right secrets and ideas. Fascinated by the historical symbolism of blooms, buds, and leaves, Shane Connolly brings together his passion for creative flower arrangements with his knowledge of their deeper meanings. Fifty-seven arrangements are explained in detail, with instructions on how to prepare and style the flowers. Detailed text about the historical meaning and associations accompany each arrangement, allowing you to choose flowers for every situation and emotion from friendship to devoted love, or even farewells and regrets. Complete with a comprehensive glossary and chapters covering expectation, births, and beginnings; innocence, simplicity, and youth; fun, frolics, and friendship; longing, loving, and lusting; anger, bitterness, and passion; forgiveness, happiness, and contentment; and remembrance, regrets, and farewells, The Secret Language of Flowers reveals a new way to speak your mind.
