The return of happiness...


Lily of the valley

These flowers signify the return of happiness as far as floriography is concerned. Floriography is the language of flowers developed over centuries but especially used in Victorian times to express ones feelings. Let's hope they signify this for us as we start to clamber back from such a tough year.

There's other firsts in the posy today such as homegrown purple irises, ranunculus and aquilegia, as well as some gorgeous sweet peas from Lincolnshire.

What's in the posy?
