"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Flowers mean as much now as they did a few hundred years ago, they just have a broader language. Roses will always say I love you or I’m thinking of you, but your favorite color is what matters as opposed to the traditional meaning behind it. Daffodils and Gerber daisies make everyone smile, whatever the situation; a hand-tied bunch of tulips will happily greet anyone in their new home; and forsythia on a cloudy day means that I am lucky to be here in the shop, where it is prematurely spring and ever so cold outside.​
