The Message In the Flowers

What we read between the flowers:

Someone left this malicious little message on your pillow,

  1. French Marigold–Jealousy
  2. Frog Ophrys–Disgust
The language of Flowers French Marigolds, jealousy

The conclusion is clear: your jealousy disgusts them.

Who would do such a thing? My guess is your sister, the one who danced twice with the very gentleman whose notice you hoped to attract with skillful wielding of your fan. (Maybe you need to put more practice in to your fan wielding, click here for a refresher)

Or maybe it’s from a friend who is deeply wounded after you refused to rejoice with them over the news that Great Aunt Mabel is taking them on a continental tour. Not only did you refuse to congratulate them you stormed at them, ranted and raved before ordering them from the house.

A bouquet of flowers is so much more subtle. Instead of ranting and raving you might have sent a bouquet of your own.

What would you include in a bouquet to show bitter disappointment?

    My bouquet would be
    Syringa (Carolina): disappointment
    some dead leaves: sadness
    Convolvulus Major: Extinguished hoped

    Because I too was hoping to go on the promised continental tour with Great Aunt Mabel.

    (Perhaps Jo should have sent these to Great Aunt March?!)

      Hello Eleanor, I tried to reply to your comment weeks ago but something went funny with my account and it wouldn’t show the response.

      I love your bouquet and yes Jo was in my mind:-)
