My Inspirations- The Language of Flowers


This is such a lovely little book. It contains such pretty pictures flower flowers and their meanings.

Everyone knows a red rose means love. But did you know Lilacs mean first emotions of love or sunflowers mean haughtiness?
This book was a re- release of a book originally published in 1885. It is small and sweet in size. The illustrations were done by the famous Kate Greenaway who was known for her children’s picture books.
Why it inspires me: I love the romantic idea of giving meanings to flowers.
