Flowers and Their Secret Meaning.
I've got no idea what this flower is called but I thought it was very pretty. Note to self - I really must start trying to find out the names of flowers.

I'm reading a book at the moment called 'The Language of Flowers' by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, it is quite interesting as it is basically about the meaning of flowers. Apparently this idea dates back to Victorian times when flowers were used as a form of communication. For instance did you know that Lavender means Mistrust, and that a Purple Coneflower means Strength and Health. It's all very interesting and at the back of the book is a dictionary of flowers giving all the meanings. I now look at flowers in a different way. (I just have to find out what the unusual flowers are called).
So, if anybody knows what this is called I'd be happy if you would let me know!!
