Review for Floriography

Review for Floriography

Floriography: An Illustrated Guide to the Victorian Language of Flowers, Flowers, Flower Language, Bouquet, Ribbon, Jessica Roux, Black, Non-fiction, History, Uses, CodesI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I LOVE flowers and I love gardening. I am so delighted that I finally have the chance to do some gardening again. Last year I moved to a new home which has a front/back garden. I had plenty of work ahead of me as it was overgrown. But this year I am slowly adding new flowers and seeing what works. Next to my garden I love filling my home with flowers. So this book is perfect for me.

This book gives us gorgeous art of flowers. Really, that really made me request this book. I love botany art, some people are just too darn talented and make it seem like you can grab the flowers or plants out of the pages.

Next to the gorgeous art each flower has it’s own page with all sorts of details on the flower. The meaning of the flower, origin (which various from mythology/history/people/believes to uses and more), and what you can pair it with and what kind of meaning that would have. Like if you mix belladone which stands for silence with columbine and begonia it is used to urge someone to keep a secret! I loved reading these little bits of text though, unless I add the book to my collection (which is a big possibility), I won’t remember them. I learned quite some new things though, and I love that!

At the end we even gets some fun bouquets for several occasions. I liked that this was added!

All in all, this is one book I would recommend to fellow flower lovers! Gorgeous art, interesting information.

Star rating, 4 stars

    1. Oh no, sorry to hear that! 😣 Thankfully, these days you can get some very realistic plants/flowers, though it is not the same as growing something yourself. 🙈 Thanks for commenting~
