It May Be Beautiful... But What Does It Mean?

>> Wednesday, August 27, 2008

If you’re a sucker for romantic comedies (or historical romances) you know that every flower has a meaning. Remember this bit from Kate & Leopold:

The orange lily implies extreme hatred. The begonia and lavender danger and
suspicion, respectively. Every flower has a meaning, Charles. Might I suggest
the amaryllis, which declares the recipient a most splendid beauty. Or the
cabbage rose.

Which is unfortunate as I rather like the orange lily and lavender...

The most popular flower on the planet, the rose, has an entire webpage dedicated to the meanings of each color. Of course meanings don't mean quite so much when you really just want to lift someone's spirits and let them know that you are thinking of them...
After looking through the huge selection at 1-800-flowers.com (a sponsor of the American Rose Society) I chose this bouquet- with matching bear:


My grandmother got a bit of bad news today and I am hoping this will lift her spirits a bit. Would it make you smile?

How sweet of you! It definitely looks like a "grandma" sort of thing. I'm sorry your grandma got some bad news. I hope everything is okay!
