The Language of Flowers

We don't just love working with flowers because they look pretty, but because they have their own language!  There are lots of different 'dictionarys' that you can refer to - the Victorians, the Renaissance, and even dating back to Biblical times - flowers have been used as symbols in paintings or to send hidden messages between lovers.

These are some of our favourites:
