The Language of Flowers
Before my mom passed away, she was highly involved in the local garden club… serving as president a few years. In thanks, the club gave her the book Tussie Mussies: The Victorian Art of Expressing Yourself in Flowers by Geraldine Adamich Laufer, which is now in a special place on one of my bookshelves. When the book called The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh showed up on the NPR Paperback Bestsellers, I had to read it. It blew me away.
Warning: I treat myself to pedicures from time-to-time. I finished this book during one. I know everyone in the place thought, “Why are tears streaming down that lady’s face?” It was that good of a book.
