The language of flowers and fairies...


"A fox is a wolf who sends flowers."
- Ruth Brown

A flower can be more than just a plant.
It can be a symbol, a message of love or sympathy, bring joy to dark moments
and say what is not dared to be spoken.
Flowers have had their own language ever since the 1800s during the Victorian era, where small round bouquets called "Tussie-Mussies" were made with different symbolic flowers as means of communications.
Although "Tussie-Mussies" are no longer common in the modern world, the idea of different flowers having specific meanings is still alive. Red roses still imply romance and love, much like yellow roses are meant to show friendship and devotion.

Flowers have always been apart of fashion, but recently I've loved how they are worn as a hair accessory. My desire for a realistic flower headband has now been filled, I picked this up last Saturday at 'The Third Eye'
