Flowerpaedia is the book I couldn't find in my three decades of work with the Language of Flowers and Botanical History and to support my passion for all things connected with gardening, plants and nature. I have long wished for a reference book which would hold an extensive cross~section of Flowers and their meanings that I could not only use myself, but I could share with others. Just over ten years ago, not being able to find such a book, I set about to write it. That wish and dream is about to be released as Flowerpaedia!
In one book, over 1,000 of the world’s flowers in a Language Dictionary format to provide you with easy access to the most accepted meanings of each blossom. Perfect for those seeking a better understanding of Flowers and their meanings for so many reasons ~ creating bouquets which say exactly what we mean; planting gardens of healing and meaning; crafting botanical treasures such as perfumes, aromatherapy and body care items; to use in oracle and divination practices; designing art from tattoos to paintings; making floral inspired craft items and decorating homes, offices and events with the energy, sentiment and messages we wish to surround ourselves with and share with others.
flowers to meanings
The first section of Flowerpaedia provides you with an alphabetical listing of over 1,000 flowers followed by their correct botanical name for accuracy in identification. Each Flower then provides the most common meanings attributed to it. What does that Flower mean? Ask Flowerpaedia!
meanings to flowers
To immerse you deeply in the Language of Flowers, the second section lists meanings alphabetically and then the flowers which connect with each so you can never be at a loss for the Flower which will convey exactly what you are wanting to share, say and feel.
Flowerpaedia also contains Flower lists from around the world and across many cultures and beliefs in it’s final section such as blossoms connected with astrology, popular Scottish clan flowers, days of the week and month flowers, official flowers of countries, those connected with gods and goddess and many more explorations into the correspondences of plants.
No book containing such a wealth of botanical history and wisdom would be complete without a botanical nomenclature (scientific name) index. This will provide you with the perfect way to look up each flower, especially if you are unsure about common names which do vary across time, culture and distance. If you are unsure of how to find these scientific names, Flowerpaedia will show you in it's introduction.
The introduction will assist you in using the book as well provide ways to enrich your life, events and celebrations with the Language of Flowers.
I hope Flowerpaedia will bring to life the Language of Flowers for you also.
You know this ancient language, you have simply forgotten it's subtle tones
in our busy, noisy world.
With Flowerpaedia, I hope to encourage us all to listen to Nature a little more closely,
not just for us, but for the world as well.
