Narcissus

(https://jardinage.lemonde.fr/images/dossiers/historique/narcisse-145329.jpg)

The plant bears the name of a hunter from Greek mythology, completely imbued with his person.
Narcissus was so fond of admiring his own reflection in the water that he ended up drowning in it.
This is why narcissus always turn a little face down. Narcissus is also the national plant of Wales.
With double flowers, plain or spotted, with a large yellow trumpet (daffodil) or in small bunches of white flowers:
there are no less than 88 different varieties of narcissus, grouped into twelve categories.
All come from the wild narcissus, which has been growing since the dawn of time in the northern hemisphere.
The varieties we know at home have mainly spread from Spain and Portugal to northern Europe.

Magnolia

The meanings of the magnolia flower depend on its colour and the culture of the person giving or receiving it.
Magnolia flowers are most often given by men to women to say, "you are worthy of a beautiful magnolia".
A magnolia flower is often synonymous with Yin (the feminine side of life).
White magnolias symbolize purity and dignity.

Dandelion

(https://cdn.radiofrance.fr/s3/cruiser-production/2017/03/c04b1669-3c43-407d-8823-445bc9c93ba3/870x489_pissenlit_gelee_obrecht_gettyimages-75836683.jpg)

The humble and banal Dandelion has a surprising amount of meaning:

The healing of an emotional or physical wound
Intelligence, especially in an emotional and spiritual sense
The warmth and power of the sunrise
Surviving all challenges and difficulties
Lasting happiness and rejuvenating joy
May your wish be granted
Since the Dandelion can thrive in difficult conditions, it is not surprising that the flower is said to symbolize the ability to rise above life's challenges.

Lilac

(https://www.jardinsdebroceliande.fr/voy_content/uploads/2018/07/Lilas-3.jpg)

According to Greek mythology, the history of lilacs begins with a beautiful nymph named Syringa (the botanical name of the lilac).
Pan, the God of forests and fields, captivated by the beauty of Syringa, chased her through the forest.
Frightened by Pan's affections, Syringa escaped him by turning into an aromatic bush; the flower we now call lilac.

The flower of the eighth wedding anniversary and a symbol of the state of New Hampshire (symbolizing the resilient character of the citizens of that State), the lilac is often regarded
as a harbinger of spring, as the time of its bloom signals whether spring will be early or late.
In the language of flowers, purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love, while white lilacs represent youthful innocence.

My lilac is flowering a good month ahead of time. I've always seen lilacs flowering for (German) Mother's day (1st Sunday of May). In the past years, lilacs flowered in the second half of April and now early April - a sign that the seasons are changing...

The wood anemone, Anemone nemorosa is a plant that inhabits the European deciduous forests, which it covers with its pretty spring flowers.
It takes a long time to establish itself, even in its natural environment, which is why Anemone nemorosa is considered by biologists to be a fairly old, mature forest indicator plant.

Poppy

(https://media.ooreka.fr/public/image/plant/218/mainImage-source-9872868.jpg)

Few flowers have played such an important role in religion, politics and medicine as the poppy.

Restorative sleep and healing
Consolation after a loss or death in the family
Remembering the dead of various wars and armed conflicts
An active imagination
Peace in death
Book messages in dreams
Resurrection and eternal life
Beauty and success

Camellia

(https://www.meillandrichardier.com/media/page/resized/page/paragraphes/photos/8/0/587x0/cropped-8091-p1i1.jpg)

Like many flowers, camellia is both the scientific and common name for this beautiful flower.
Its name comes from Father Georg Joseph Kamel when Carl Linnaeus, creator of taxonomy, standardized the name of plants in 1753.
Ironically, Kamel, who was a botanist, did not work on the camellia himself.

This flower speaks to the heart and expresses positive feelings. Some of the most common meanings include:

desire or passion
refinement
perfection and excellence
loyalty and longevity

Lily of the valley

(https://edu.ge.ch/site/ellamaillart/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2018/04/muguet.jpg)


It was in 1561 that Charles IX offered strands of lily of the valley to his entourage, thus initiating what was to become a tradition that is still firmly rooted in customs today.

Beyond the symbol linked to the 1st of May, the lily of the valley has a meaning all its own in the language of flowers.
The lily of the valley is the symbol of happiness and more particularly of happiness regained.
We offer it when we want to mark the joy of the return of happiness in our lives, or when we want to wish the person to whom we offer it to find happiness as soon as possible.

It is also lily of the valley that you can offer to someone you have fallen out with, to invite him or her to reconcile, in order to regain the happiness of being together.
This can be the case for a friendly relationship such as a love relationship, to invite his or her companion to get closer, after an argument or a quarrel for example.

Tulip

(https://mybiggeneva.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/%C2%A9Vanessa-Hermann.jpg)

It may not be the most stylish flower in the garden, but the beauty and grace of a simple tulip has made the flower a symbol for these different concepts:

Perfect and lasting love between partners or family members...
Infinite and passionate love, whether the passion is rejected or shared
Royalty and Royal Nature
Forgotten or neglected love
11th wedding anniversary
Abundance, Prosperity and Forgiveness
Charity and help for the most unfortunate

Pungent buttercup

(https://img.over-blog-kiwi.com/2/16/44/27/20180610/ob_f2d33e_dsc02492.JPG)

Ranunculus acris, in Latin, belongs to the Renunculaceae family.
Ranunculus means "little frog" probably because of the many species of ranunculus that enjoy
the wetlands where these batrachians live; acris means "acrid", for the bitter reputation of the plant's juice.

Daisy

Daisy means:

Innocence, especially for white daisies with a yellow or pale centre.
Purity - also represented by daisies as white as possible.
A new beginning, which is why they are often found in bouquets offered to new mothers or children.
True love - because each daisy is in fact the harmonious union of two flowers.
That the giver can keep a secret. Keeping a secret is a way to show someone that you really love them.

In English, the word "daisy" comes from an Old English term and means "eye of the day" because these flowers only open during the day.

Pansy flower ? (Viola wittrockiana) 

(https://media.ooreka.fr/public/image/plant/50/furtherImage/2njaidl09gqok8cwg84gswoos-source-9682424.jpg)

Often confused with the violet because it belongs to the violet family, they are distinguished by its 4 petals upwards and one downwards.
Unlike violets, which have 2 petals upwards and 3 downwards.

In French,offering pansy simply means: "I am thinking of you".
It is the flower which makes it possible to say that one has an affectionate thought towards a close one.


It is also widely used to express remembrance because in Greek mythology, the young Io was transformed into a heifer
by her lover Zeus (to escape Hera's vengeance) and placed in a field of pansies to spend the end of her life savouring the memory of her love.
