Description of Circle of Love

A “Language of Flowers assignment in a Botanical drawing class is based on floral arrangements that send messages.  The practice began in the middle ages and became popular in the Victorian age with tussie-mussies and nosegays used in courting.  My ‘Circle of Love” was a gift to my husband for our 37th wedding Anniversary.  The plants chosen are: Banboo for loyalty, steadfastness, Circle for undying love, Bleeding heart for fidelity, Ivy for fidelity and marriage, Red Rose for love, passion, Rosemary for remembrance and the wedding rings for the bond or marriage.  the blue ribbon represents something blue in a wedding.  many prints have been given as wedding and anniversary gifts.
