The most admired is certainly that of flowers, extremely symbolic species, both in the myths of the past and in more recent tradition. There are so many, in fact, the legends that feature flowers and their various and numerous meanings. Of course, the term "language" does not mean that the flowers speak, although on closer look, sometimes it seems to tell us something. With flowers, in fact, you can say without speaking, expressing emotions and feelings even unmentionable. The flowers, in fact, are assigned different meanings. Many species have flourished a sacred meaning, almost religious. This language belongs to white flowers in general, the highest expression of candor and innocence. Opposite meaning, however, for the flowers of red, where it symbolizes love and passion. There are also red flowers that do not necessarily express feelings of love or falling in love. We cite, for example, amaranth, plant leaves with dark red or amaranth, in fact.

Of course, we hope that the flowers are always given away for positive reasons, maybe even sentimental. Saying "I love you" with a flower is worth much more than in the words. It 'so important to know a priori the flowers with a meaning of love.

Blood Betrayal Excerpt :

Saxson Olaru is one of the select, the few, the elite... As a ruthless sentinel sworn to protect the ancient Vampyr king and the house of Jadon, he has “HOJ” literally inscribed on his heart: a heart that was tragically broken centuries earlier, when human hunters slayed his mother and Dark Ones murdered his father. Having survived the unthinkable, he never dreamed he would come this close to another human predator, let alone a female pretending to be his destiny. Kiera and Kyla Sparrow are twin sisters: humans, living very different lives. While Kiera is selfless, clever, and talented, Kyla is dark, duplicitous, and damaged—she belongs to a secret society of vampire-hunters, and she has sworn to destroy as many as she can. When Saxson’s Blood Moon appears in a February sky, and the matching constellation, Cetus the Sea Monster, appears on Kiera’s wrist, Kyla knows exactly what it means: The celestial gods have chosen her beautiful sister to be the eternal mate of an immortal vampire—she just doesn’t know which one. And it really doesn’t matter. If Kyla can recreate the sacred emblem on her own inner wrist, she can take Kiera’s place and commit the ultimate Blood Betrayal. When duty, obedience, and honor clash with a deep, gnawing intuition, an honor-bound warrior will be forced to choose between allegiance to the house he loves and the quiet voice within, whispering: “Warning!” One wrong move. One wrong choice. And all will be lost forever.
