Flowers With Meanings
Whether it's for that special romantic dinner for you and your lover or given as thoughtful and loving gesture, flowers are seductive. In the early 1900's men would express their sentiments by sending certain flowers that carried specific messages.
Today, both men and women send flowers to each other and there are no hard and fast rules on the variety of flower sent. Yet, if you wish to revive this old fashioned tradition, here's a guide to the meaning attached to certain flowers.
