    The language of flowers

    In the Victorian language of flowers, each flower conveyed a secret message.
    Some meanings from this dried flower project include:

    Red roses for true love & pink roses for grace

    Forget-me-knots for fidelity

    Viola – in my thoughts

    Happy Valentines Day!
