Love and flowers

The relationship between love and flowers goes back as far as the 1700's. It's a tradition that has lost favour in more recent years but presenting flowers on a date goes back to when Charles II of Sweden returned from a trip to Persia with "the language of flowers" - something still used today. He believed different flowers could be used to communicate different sentiments and claimed you could have a whole conversation with just a single bouquet!
