In March Our Hearts Yearn For Flowers (Guest Post)

In March the days are getting longer, birds are venturing out from their winter hiding places to encourage Spring to hurry up with loud chirpings and carryings on.

The “Language of Flowers” developed during the very conservative period of the Victorian era. The Victorians were strongly restricted by the rules of etiquette – and at that time it was considered totally inappropriate to express feelings of love or affection. Messages were assigned to a specific flower. A lover could then send flowers that conveyed a hidden romantic meaning, although you’d think that the entire society would catch on after a while. The Daffodil, whether in white, yellow or orange, meant "You are an angel".

Birth month flowers are also given as gifts for special occasions all over the world. Celebrations most popular for the Daffodil include the birth of a new baby, and weddings. The meaning of the flower adds interest to the message.
