    FOR YOUR INFORMATION…presents
    Henry Flowers and the Language of Flowers
    Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 7pm
    at the Round Top Family Library
    206 W. Mill St., Round Top


    Since ancient times flowers, herbs and other plants have been
    used as a symbolic means to convey feelings and as a means of
    communication. The ancient Romans crowned great poets and
    successful warriors with bay laurel as a symbol of glory.
    Shakespeare's Ophelia reminds us that pansies are for thoughts
    and that rosemary is for remembrance. But it was the
    Victorians that brought this language to a greater height and
    turned the act of giving flowers into an art form. Through books
    and live floral examples you will learn how to convey your
    feelings with the language of flowers and won't have to utter a
    single word.
