"We pulled our kids from the house for a much-needed long evening drive in the country during the worldwide pause, at the beginning of the pandemic."
We drove for a while until we came to dirt roads flanked by rows of corn taller than our pickup truck. Then we waited.
When the sun dipped just below the tree line, we watched the first firefly send its light into the newly dimmed evening air. Soon after, the fields lit up with hundreds more. They all had the same goal, to find each other. That night was a shift in perspective for me.
The fireflies reminded me to see the light in this time of uncertainty, and with that shift, I was able to design our Language of Flowers collection.
Ginkgo, which symbolizes endurance, longevity, and resilience, seemed especially fitting. Poisonous and Prickly, well, that seemed fitting too!
We expanded the collection to include Gratitude, Friendship, Joy, Harmony, and Unity, feelings that pulled at my heart.
The Language of Flowers, also known as Floriography, is the hidden meaning of flowers derived from ancient folklore and symbolism from around the world. In the 1800s, during the Victorian era, people used flowers to communicate things to others that were too difficult to speak out loud. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we shared our feelings, both good and bad, with flowers again?! We hope you love our new additions as much as we do!
