The language of flowers was invented in ancient times, whenpatriarchal foundations did not allow a girl and a boy to meet. Then the lovers found a way to express their feelings in such an original way. You can say that the flowers served as something like letters. The names of flowers people knew how we now know the alphabet, and the receipt of a plant spoke of many things - reciprocal passion, rejection, friendship, disposition.
Years passed, and the language of flowers was gradually forgotten.Although we like to plant flowers in the garden, but not only do not know all the names of the flowers, but also do not realize what they mean when we present a present in the form of a bouquet to somebody. Now the aesthetic harmony of the bouquet is more appreciated, its high cost. Therefore, recently, such emphasis is placed on roses, carnations and lilies, and wildflowers are considered a cheap gift. But for a person who knows the meaning, and therefore the true price of each flower, a bouquet of humble heather, pansies or forget-me-nots means as much as three roses in a cellophane wrapper.
However, the hidden message of the bouquet can now beto decipher. There are encyclopedias of flowers, where all the names of flowers are listed alphabetically - from "a" to "I", with the history of each flower, myths associated with it, and also indicating what this plant means in the language of flowers. But, deciphering the gift, do not be scared: because the language of flowers is almost forgotten, the donor could give you, without any malicious intent, for example, a bouquet of cornflowers (resentment, hatred) or yellow carnations (refusal of reciprocity, contempt).
But why not try to resurrect thisgentle wordless language? After all, some skilfully composed bouquets can serve as whole messages! Of course, for a start you can not do without a verbal explanation of the value of the bouquets you have given. But if you manage to attract the girl, then you can exchange fragrant messages every day without using such jaded words as "I love you" and "I love you too" ... But first you need to study the names of colors and their meaning yourself, so as not to get trapped .
First of all, you need to remember that some flowersmean certain feelings, sometimes quite complex. Do you want to express love? But what kind of love - timid, passionate, faithful, ready for selflessness, platonic? Proceeding from this, choose the flowers of apricot, jonquilia, amaranth, heliotrope, acacia. Do you give flowers to your sister? Express her his sympathy (armeria), wish good luck (basil camphor or pink heather). Mom give pink carnations, and my father - irises or gladioli. There are certain names of colors that mean not certain feelings, but carry hidden information. So, azalea means "Fragile love is over," ambrosia - "I answer your feelings with reciprocity," the flower of orange blossom - "You're as pure as attractive", begonia - "Watch out, I'm capricious!".
Sometimes it is important to know not only the names of colors and theirvalue, but also the color of the plant. In some cases, it plays an important role. This applies, above all, breeding flowers, because they are all colors of the rainbow. So, a white carnation means innocence and pure love, yellow - contempt, purple - antipathy, red says: "In my heart only you!", And striped: "Forgive us, we can not be alone". An even greater variety of sensations and messages is expressed by the "queen of flowers" of the rose. Its crimson color means "I still love you", white - purity and innocence, white and red - reunion, beige - friendship, yellow - jealousy, orange - passion, red - love, pink - tenderness, pink-white - eternal love , dark pink - thanks. It also matters when to give roses. For example, for Christmas - the wish for peace and peace, for the wedding - a happy family life, for a birthday - for many years.
