#92 I miss the italian language of flowers

Crisantemi, Chrysanthemums.

Pretty, pretty, colorful flowers.

That you should NEVER give to an Italian woman, since in Italy these are the flowers of death, used mainly in funerals and cemeteries.

Zagare, or fiori d’arancio (‘orange blossoms’)

Brides’ flowers

Lilies

symbol of innocence, perfect to celebrate a birth.

Gerani, Geranyums and Azalee

Grandmother’s favorite. They decorate any italian balcony, window sill, and garden.
