Flowers can help us express so many emotions and feelings and are the universal language of love. The language of flowers began with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in the late 1900s and they would express their love for each other with different flowers. You couldn’t just come out and tell someone how you felt at that time, so they created a secret language using flowers. Incredibly romantic, and it shows that flowers have a way of speaking to us in their beauty and simplicity.
