A Victorian Flower Dictionary: The Language of Flowers Companion by Mandy Kirkby

A Victorian Flower Dictionary: The Language of Flowers Companion - Mandy Kirkby, Vanessa Diffenbaugh

I liked this even better than The Language of Flowers, the novel of which it is a companion (a rather disappointing novel, actually). The illustrations inside this book are not quite as "lavish" as the description on the back cover promised, and the lack of references lends a certain vagueness to the various flora-related anecdotes described. But what can I say, I just really like flower symbolism, I find it quite fascinating.
