Week of Pink ~ The Language of Flowers

It can’t get any sweeter than Keiller’s marmalade and roses. The “language of flowers,” sometimes called floriography, dates back to 19th century Victorian England, and placing roses in these marmalade jars seems so appropriately vintage. My mother has always collected these sweet Dundee jars, and I too have built my own collection. Each one is always a bit unique from the next, which gives them such charm!

Today, the sun broke through the cloudy February skies and I finally felt the promise of spring…until it snowed again this evening! Regardless, I love the way that Valentine’s Day flowers break the gray of winter with their warmth. The Washington Post put it perfectly when they said:

Giving or getting a flower that typically blooms in the summer on Valentine’s Day, in the middle of the frigid month of February? That something so delicate can come from so far away, so cheaply, and at the moment when it’s just about to bloom – it’s truly a miracle.
