Looking for something enchanting to read? Try this book by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, The Language of Flowers.
The story is actually about the language of flowers, so much so that there's a dictionary in the end of the book. The dictionary translates as it were, a flower into our language. So a pansy would be "think of me" and parsley "festivity" and lily of the valley "return of happiness". When you make a flower arrangement of those three, there is a complex message to be read (of course only if you both speak the same language of flowers...) The iris on the book cover means: This is a message.
A dear friend was having her birthday, so I had this bouquet put together for her.
Not only pretty to look at, but it reads a special message. Clear as day, if you can read it. In order it to be legible I gave her the book as well. I wonder if she succeeded?
