blue glass flowers irises jug still life

According to the language of floriography sending the iris is a message of power.
Flower power then…?

Floriography was quite big in Victorian times, because they were all so bloody repressed I guess. Secret messages were often delivered in floral terms.

Anyway it’s not only the colour of roses that mean something, and I don’t mean how much cash you’ve got to spend, though if you send 999 roses to say: I will love you to the end of time, you are indeed also saying hello, I’m pretty awesomely cashed up, how ’bout it?

Twelve roses means Be mine, 13 apparently Friends forever.  Good to know. However send  me 12 or 13 roses of any colour and you can be mine good friend forever til the end of time. Thank you, come again.

FYI: 1 rose of any colour = simplicity or gratitude.

So I found this info here, if you

a] don’t believe me,

b] are inclined to learn more about the age old art [developed by the Turks in the 17th Century] of flower meanings or

c] want to learn what unconscious messages were delivered this Mother’s Day.

Lucky enough to have seen the real Irises by Vincent van Gogh with my own eyes.
It sold for $53.90 million in 1987 to Alan Bond who  did not have enough money to pay for it. Later re-sold to the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. It sits at Number 10 on the list of most expensive paintings ever sold.

Passed up this print for $20 because I didn’t much like the frame or the typography.
Now have Regret seeing as the glass and the image alone were worth more.
Don’t you hate that?
