The Language of Tropical Flowers

Whether it's the origin of a flower's name, it's symbolism or relation to mythology, or just it's distinctive characteristics, almost everyone likes flowers of some sort or another. Flowers have been associated with different meanings throughout the ages. They are a frequent symbol of love worldwide and have even been used by governments as thank you gifts.

These next ones are from a good friend's gardens, who's gracious enough to have agreed to be growing us some of our organic lavender and mint this year.
