|The Herbal Husband's First Tussie-Mussie!|
A red rose (“I love you”); carnation (pure and ardent love); daisy (“I will think of it”); baby’s breath (everlasting love); and some herbs from the indoor plants: peppermint scented geranium (cordial feelings), lemon verbena (“You have bewitched me”) and rosemary (for remembrance). I didn't get a chance to mention the daisy meaning is because we are both getting older! Really when a gentleman used daisies back in Victorian times the "I will think of it" meaning meant she made a wreath of daisies to wear around her head to remind her that she had a proposal to think about.
I just want to mention and give a shout out to my local florist Z Florist in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. They have beautiful flowers and at reasonable prices. I also want to give a very special thank you to my friend, Elizabeth Bergstrom Case who made a very special potpourri for Valentine's Day in time for this post. You can check her beautiful cards and potpourri blends at Benevolent Botanical Greetings
Hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day and hopefully Elizabeth and I have given you some ideas in this digital age to surprise your valentine! It is still freezing here in the 'Burgh. Hope you are warmer wherever you may be in the world. Talk to you later.
