Flowers with Sass

                Flowers have always had meaning within art. Though the craze for flower language in England did not start until the nineteenth century, the choice of flowers within this textile is quite deliberate as it combines flowers native to both Britain and the Americas in ways that they would not appear in nature. While a designer cannot be identified for this pattern, it is most likely that he or she knew the meanings of these flowers when combining them.
