Hermes is the mythological emissary who would carry the messages of the Greek gods with speed and grace. One legend tells of Hermes accidentally, and fatally wounding his dear friend Crocus, whose spilled blood gave birth the Crocus flower. Although we may not be privy to the gods or have Hermes’ winged sandals, we too may send meaningful messages with grace with flowers. Take for example these flowers that start with V.
As you decide on a gift and a message for a dear loved one or a fellow flower enthusiast, consider the symbolism behind the bloom.
