Flowers Talking

If birds call to us, flowers certainly talk.  The language of flowers has always fascinated me.  In days gone by, people would send messages without writing a word, by bouquet: the flowers themselves did the talking.  I used http://www.languageofflowers.com to translate some of the blooms in our garden (photos from the last two summers).  I don’t guess I’ll be giving anybody hydrangeas, though.  A big thanks to my husband for cultivating our beautiful flower garden!
