The Victorians turned flower giving into an art, and Sheila Pickles's The Language of Flowers explores the meanings and significance ascribed to certain flowers. Penhaligon's "Violetta" perfume scents the book, and violets are one of the more than twenty such English flowers whose my myths and legends are explored and their subtle language revealed. Favorite poems and prose selections by classic authors illustrate these themes and are accompanied by richly decorative, floral paintings. This treasury makes the perfect gift for occasions when something more lasting than flowers is appropriate.
