    Flowerpaedia: Flowers for Every Star Sign

    BY CHERALYN DARCEY FOR NEW SPIRIT JOURNAL MARCH 13TH / 0 COMMENTS

    The language of flowers shares with us the meanings of flowers and we have used this information for centuries to not only better understand our natural environment, but also ourselves.
