Dancing Dahlias

By pamelajean
From the garden of a lovely couple who used to live next door.
Both have now sadly moved to a higher place, but leaving me with pictures like this to bring back fond memories.
From the Victorian “Language Of Flowers”, dahlias symbolise “Forever Thine”, which I think is so appropriate, because my neighbours had been together since childhood, and are now together again.

The Language Of Flowers, sometimes called Floriography, was a Victorian-era means of communication in which various flowers and floral arrangements were used to send coded messages, allowing individuals to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken.
Just as a calligrapher uses his quill, or a photographer relies on his camera, flowers are the Floriographer’s form of expression. The Floriographer gives each bloom a voice, creating something beautiful not only to the eye, but resonating on a much deeper level; the impalpable sense of the sentiments themselves.
