lilium candidum


{The Lily Project/Oct 2013} ——Like any other tropical countries where the rains and sunshine intermingle, here in Indonesia during the wet season, mornings are generally very bright and sunny, and afternoon rain showers are common. And in this beginning of rainy season, white lilies (local name: Bakung) start to bloom gracefully in my garden.

A Beginner’s Guide to the Language of Flowers

The language of flowers is not a complicated code, and it isn’t intended to be a cryptograph. While composing sentence-long messages with floriography is possible, it is not particularly complex. For ease of reference, this guide is organized by meaning, not by flower. It includes bloom cycles, taxonomic names, pictures, and any other facts of interest such as typical clime or edible/medicinal uses.

This guide contains only European, North African and Eurasian flora (at least, I’m pretty sure. I may have fudged it up in some places).
