A Flower Bouquet can use the meaning of flowers to send a secret message of Love

Roses, the traditional flower of Valentine's Day and love, come from a Roman legend of a woman, named Rodanthe. She was pursued by many suitors who finally became so impassioned they broke down the doors of her house. This enraged the goddess Diana, who turned the woman into a flower and her suitors each into a thorn.

Many florists encourage you to 'say it with flowers'.  Whether your buying from a florist or making your own flowers, use the meanings of flowers described in a guide to the language of flowers that will send the right message to the special meaning of flowers for valentine's day person in your life.
