A Victorian flower dictionary : the language of flowers companion by Mandy Kirkby( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A flower is not a flower alone; a thousand thoughts invest it." Daffodils signal new beginnings, daisies innocence . Lilacs mean the first emotions of love, periwinkles tender recollection . Early Victorians used flowers as a way to express their feelings--love or grief, jealousy or devotion. Now, modern-day romantics are enjoying a resurgence of this bygone custom, and this book will share the historical, literary, and cultural significance of flowers with a whole new generation. With lavish illustrations, a dual dictionary of flora and meanings, and suggestions for creating expressive arrangements, this keepsake is the perfect compendium for everyone who has ever given or received a bouquet.

2 editions published in 2015 in Norwegian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I fjorten år har Letty Espinosa hatt tre ulike jobber rundt om i San Francisco for å få endene til å møtes, mens hennes mor har oppdratt hennes to barn - Alex, nå femten, og Luna seks. De bor i en liten leilighet i et av San Franciscos fattige strøk. Når besteforeldrene bestemmer seg for å flytte tilbake til Mexico, snus Lettys tilværelse på hodet. For første gang må hun være en mor for sine barn og klare seg selv. Det er en utfordrende tid for Letty, spesielt siden Luna savner besteforeldrene. Samtidig forelsker Alex seg i en klassevenninne, og er lite villig til å gi moren en sjanse. Letty finner en måte slik at familien kan komme seg vekk fra det farlige nabolaget, men et feiltrinn kan sette alt hun har jobbet så hardt for på spill
Sekretny język kwiatów by Vanessa Diffenbaugh( Recording )

2 editions published in 2011 in Polish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jak nauczyć się porozumienia i miłości? Victoria spędziła młodość w rodzinach zastępczych i domach dziecka. Aspołeczna. Porywcza. Małomówna. Bezczelna-- oto, co zapisywano w raportach. Ale jest bardzo wrażliwa i kocha kwiaty. Nieufna, porozumiewa się z otoczeniem za pomocą języka roślin. Poznała go dzięki Elisabeth, jednej ze swych przybranych matek. Nieprzystosowana i zła na cały świat, napotkanym ludziom najchętniej dawałaby bukiet nagietków, oznaczający żal, lub osty, sygnalizujące mizantropię. Osiemnastoletnia Victoria zaczyna teraz dorosłe życie. Chce być florystką i dostaje pracę w kwiaciarni, gdzie przygotowuje bukiety o specjalnym znaczeniu, pomagające klientom w wyrażaniu wielu dobrych uczuć. Sama jednak nie chce o nich słyszeć, nie wierzy w nie, nie rozumie. Gdy spotyka Granta, który również zna język kwiatów w dziewczynie rozkwitają wcześniej nieznane uczucia. "Sekretny język kwiatów" jest pasjonującą opowieścią o odkrywaniu prawdziwych sensów, znaczeń i intencji, odbieranych inaczej przez każdego z nas. I o tym wspólnym, najintymniejszym obszarze porozumiewania się, możliwym, gdy w grę wchodzi to jedno jedyne, najpiękniejsze uczucie. Vanessa Diffenbauch podarowała nam prawdziwy skarb: bukiet z paproci (szczerość), mimozy (wrażliwość), dzięgiela (inspiracja), portulaki (wyznanie miłości) i dzwonów irlandzkich (szczęście)
