{74} The language of flowers

I've been doing some reading about the old fashioned 'language of flowers' and I think it's such a charming, old fashioned concept.
This is an icon set using that idea. I've got a textless icon, and then one with the flowers meaning like so:





1/ 2/
3/ 4/
5/ 6/
7/ 8/
9/ 10/
11/ 12/
13/ 14/
15/ 16/
17/ 18/
19/ 20/
21/ 22/
23/ 24/
25/ 26/
27/ 28/
29/ 30/
31/ 32/
33/ 34/
35/ 36/
37/ 38/
39/ 40/
41/ 42/
43/ 44/
45/ 46/
47/ 48/
49/ 50/
51/ 52/
53/ 54/
55/ 56/
57/ 58/
59/ 60/
61/ 62/
63/ 64/
65/ 66/
67/ 68/
69/ 70/
71/ 72/
73/ 74/

The language and meaning of flowers is entirely fascinating. I'm always trying to read the secret meaning of flowers. Not that I get any from anyone, but as soon as I do....
Cool idea.

i took the tulips, the buttercup, and the daffodil (all textless. i'm on a textless kick right now.)

love them all though. can i ask where you got your images of the tulips? i want to redesign/add to my website, but the thought of tracking down more useable tulip pictures makes me a little tired. (never said i wasn't lazy!) and your tulips are beautiful. also, i LOVE the "fragile" icon you used in the above comment.

i have so many of your icons, it's getting to be slightly embarrassing. ;)

(i vote for you doing the color theme again! but then again, i'm greedy, and have like, every one of your green icons saved. hah! how appropriate!)

I'm really glad you like my icons - it's nice to be appreciated :)
The orchid icon I'm using is by daylight_mirage, who I've only just discovered.
I get almost all my base images from getty images, you're bound to find some nice tulips there!

It took me all day, but I managed to save all of them. (There were some breaks in between.) I've always been fascinated with the language of flowers and I have so many flowers that I love, that I just couldn't decide what to take, so I saved them all. :)
