Irene Virag's Garden Party

I'm Irene Virag -- a writer, a gardener, a cancer survivor. I think ideas are like plants. They need nurturing to grow. And gardeners share both. So welcome to my blog. It’s all about what’s happening in my garden and beyond.

Searching for Flowers

With Valentine's Day upon us, it's no surprise that flowers are on our minds. And Yahoo! Buzz -- which sifts through the millions of searches that the curious, the confused and the computer-dependent among us make on any given day -- has issued a list of flowers getting the most action on the Web.

Here's the Top 20, followed by the traditional sentiment associated with each bloom. In the lexicon of flowers, apparently Calla lilies, Gerbera daisies and Star Gazer lilies have no special meanings. Anyone out there want to speak for them? Send me your thoughts.

I love the idea that each flower has a meaning, I received lysanthium, my favourite flower on Valentine's Day. I would love to know the meaning of this flower?
