Publisher Comments:

Familiar species, common plants, and natural phenomena are introduced in these beautifully illustrated guides to nature and the outdoors. Printed on the same heavy-duty waterproof stock as the titles in the popular Duraguide™ series, these Waterproof Pocket Guides are highly durable for use in the field. Each title provides a portable reference to a variety of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, butterflies, and insects and beginning nature enthusiasts as well as seasoned explorers will relish the abundance of detailed information packed within.

 

Highlighting the history, symbolism, and folklore surrounding the most common floral gifts, this pocket-sized guide translates the silent language of flowers. With a focus on the history of flowers as used by Victorian women to communicate with the outside world, this guide provides the information needed to convey appropriate sentimental and moral meaning with blossoms.

Synopsis:

In Victorian times, young women were protected and shielded from the outside world; to communicate with friends and lovers, they often resorted to the silent language of floral gifts which could have both sentimental and moral meanings. This beautifully illustrated guide highlights the history, symbolism and folklore surrounding 50 of the most common floral gifts. Now you can "say it with flowers" and have a clue what you are saying . A perfect, pocket-sized reference for romantics of all ages. Made in the USA.
