Michael: Just as every animal instinctively puts us in touch with certain qualities; so, too, do flowers. The study of our subconscious relationship with flowers goes back hundreds of years. In an age before most people were literate, many people sent each other symbolic messages by sending dried or cut blooms.
As a precursor to spring, today we bring you wisteria...a long time symbol of the delicacy, fragility, but constantly renewed circle of life. Because of its yearly renewal, wisteria represents rising again and again from the ashes of the past, reliably putting forward new growth every year and therefore instinctively filling us with a sense of continuity and longevity.
