Love is.../ Blue Monday

Had to share this Love is...for Valentine's day! I thought it would look sweet with these flowers I am thinking will add the perfect Valentine's Day touch!
Blue roses! Dreamy and thinking Spring should be here soon!
Daisies for all the friendships I have formed here.
A bouquet of lilies for two lovely ladies Marydon and Sally. They host Love is... and Blue Monday each week. Stop by for a visit and say hello!
With Valentine's Day around the corner here  is an interesting list of flower meanings:
Flower & Plant Information and Photos - Meanings of Flowers
In Victorian times, certain flowers had specific meanings because the flower selection was limited and people used more symbols and gestures to communicate than words. But today, with so many flower choices, there are no rules - it's the sentiment that gives the gift its meaning. Your florist can help you send the right message. Many people assign their own personal meanings - a flower or color that might remind them of a special event or moment in their lives. For those interested in the historic meanings of flowers, the Society of American Florists has compiled this list from a variety of different sources:
Alstroemeria aspiring
Amaryllis dramatic

Apple Blossom promis

Baby's Breath festivity
