In Victorian times, everyone was well versed in what is called the language of flowers. Every flower has a special meaning and any bouquet given was chosen carefully by flower type to convey the
correct meaning. If you are planning to send or give flowers for Valentine's Day, you might consider the various types and meanings before selection. For instance, the Anemone is symbolic
of unfading love, the aster of love's preference, the azalea means take care of yourself for me, fragile passion and is the Chinese symbol of womanhood. The bachelor button means celibacy, the bluebell means humility and constancy, and baby's breath is everlasting love.

    Thank-You Walksoftly, These are some of the postcards I found in my Grandmothers attic. I was trying to sort thru them and just started wondering what all the images stood for. Then as its almost Valentines Day, well, the timing seemed appropriate to post! I wish I had saved more of her postcards. The Easter one are my favorites!

    Beaux, is there a good chart of meanings somewhere? I would hate to send the wrong message next week!

    This one has a list that is from Victorian Age, maybe a tad outdated!
    I'm excited for spring, flowers are my love, and the vases I put them in too.
    Happy Valentines Day!
