The Language of Flowers

Book Share Fridays: The Language of Flowers by Margaret Pickston

This is a flower reference book in the style that the Victorians might have done. Pages and pages of flowers are listed, along with their "meaning," when given to someone. Daffodil means "regard." Wild Grape is "charity." White rose "I am worthy of you." A fun and quaint little book.


  1. Love this! I've always wondered about the meaning of flowers. It's weird to think that society somehow decided, over time, what all these flowers mean. Pretty fascinating.

  2. Hello! You might be interested in checking out my debut novel, FORGET-HER-NOTS (HarperCollins, 2010). It's all about the language of flowers come magically to life.

    Have a wonderful summer!
