THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
Flowers have been greatly esteemed since the dawn of civilization. Ancient Egyptians painted them on their temple walls and the withered remains of flowers have been found in ancient tombs around the world. The colorful and fragile beauty of flowers has give rise to countless culturally symbolic meanings, and folktales about flowers have abounded from the earliest times--although not in the Western World until the end of the Middle Ages. Floral representations have been added to all forms and materials of artistic effort--paintings, metal ware, furniture, fabric and so on. Floral names have even graced our daughters. Although less common now, names such as Rose, Daisy, Myrtle, Pansy, and even Honey, were once quite popular.
