Morning Glory Heart -Guest Heart Thursday
In Victorian times, flowers were given various meanings. One could know the nature of a lover's feelings by the bouquet he sent. The Morning Glory came to symbolize great affection. These beautiful flowers blossom in the morning, but die by nightfall. Some were convinced they represented the fleeting nature of love. Yet because the vine produces new flowers every day during its growth season, it also came to represent the renewable aspects of romance and the heart.
In Chinese folklore, the Morning Glory represents a single day for lovers to meet. Here's something else I didn't know--these beautiful blooms also represent the month of September and 11th wedding anniversaries!
Have a wonderful day! Happy Guest Heart Thursday!
