Flower Magick

Who doesn't like flowers?  Well OK apart from the allergy thing...who doesn't like to look at flowers?

Well they aren't just beautiful and they aren't just for the bees.

Each flower has magickal properties that you can work with.  Each particular flower has specific energies and each colour of flower has energies too.   Work with them and see what you come up with.

Flowers also have their own language - roses for beauty, chrysanthemums for cheerfulness, daisies for innocence, lilies for purity and modesty.   (from Mary M Griffin's Drops from Flora's Cup, 1845).

Use the petals in your spellwork, dry them and use them in incense or put some fresh flowers in your home.  Also if you are giving fresh flowers as a present, check out the properties to correspond.
