I found this to be an interesting article in the Old Farmers Almanac, 2009 edition.
Did you know that certain flowers, herbs and trees have symbolic meanings?
Well, I knew that roses did, but not really any others.
For instance Honeysuckle‘s symbolic meaning is Bonds of Love.
I knew there was more to them than just their sweet smell and tasty nectar!
Basil – good wishes, love
And Pine – humility
Willow – sadness
Fern – sincerity
Do you have a favorite flower, tree or herb and want to see if it has a symbolic meaning?
My favorite flower is a daisy and it’s not on their list.
I wonder what its meaning is???
