Post About Flower Symbolism and Gifting Flowers May 9, 2018 12:21 PM   Subscribe

I vaguely recall a post about the gifting of flowers and the symbolic meaning behind them. And I think it's also a post that talks about this being done in a specific period of history, like the 20s/30s (could be very wrong about this part) and how this relates to the type of relationship you're trying to establish with a person? You'd give a person a rose if you wanted to send this message or a yellow tulip if you wanted this type of relationship. Please and thank you.

Yup, that's it.

My friend Tommy and I like to play this game where we cast our close friends in various ways based on their personalities. If so and so was a drink, they'd be this. If you were a colour, you'd be this. Etc. We were on the subject of flowers and I was wanting to find this post.

Fizz, if you were a flower, what flower would you be?

According to my friend Tommy, I'd be a snapdragon. :)
