PREFACE.

This little volume contains a brief sketch of the mytho

logy and symbolism of flowers; some hints with regard

to their practical utility; selections from the poetry inspired by them; and a full explanation of their language,

in the shape of a Vocabulary and Flower Dialogues. A

game for home is also suggested, to be played with these

lovely gifts of nature. Thus, it is hoped, that alike in

sunshine and shade—when June's red roses delight 'sn

or

“rain and wind beat dark December"-our readers

may enjoy a perennial Bouquet.
