Floriography or the language of flowers was popular in the Victorian era. Flower dictionaries where each flower is given a particular meaning were widely used. Mythology, folklore, and legends explained how flowers obtained their symbolic meanings.
Flowers by Selina offers bespoke floral design services for the home, business, and event. Curated bouquets are offered for sale most weekends at The Reading Room in Katonah. Selina is a graduate of the Floral Design program at the New York Botanical Garden. This is a floral blog that reflects my love of flowers in literature, art, travel and more.
