  • Description or summary of the book: You?ve been told to say it with flowers. Do you know what you are saying? We are surrounded with symbols. These symbols have meanings, sometimes dating back to the earliest records of human history. Throughout civilization, flowers remain an intricate expression of emotion and feeling. A handful of daisies or a dozen long-stemmed roses entice passion in the soul. The fragrances of creation can overwhelm one's senses launching the spirit into an ecstasy of life. Although unknown to most, flowers have very specific meanings. Why do we have national flowers? What use is the poppy? What is the significance of mistletoe? The evolution of these meanings have developed into intensely varied definitions. Inferred through superstition and ancient lore to the physical nature of the plant, flowers have gained purpose for emblems, crests and celebrations of life and death. Mixed with poetry, facts and notable quotations, The Ancient Language of Flowers gives you the meaning of over 700 flowers and flowering plants, cross referenced by meaning or name. Interwoven with over 50 illustrations, this book contains: Meaning by Flower Name Flowers by Meaning Astrological Flowers National Flowers State Flowers Provincial Flowers Flower Poetry Flower Quotations Factual Flower History, and An essay on Florology and Meaning This book is a treasure-trove of esoteric and arcane knowledge compiled from Victorian and historical reference works. You will discover a hidden world of symbolic messages almost lost in the age of technology. There are none who speak louder than those who speak in action. Learn the language and speak to yourhearts intent.
