The Language of Flowers - Book Giveaway

A month ago I was luck enough to review Vanessa Diffenbaugh's début novel The Language of Flowers and the publishers, Pan Macmillan have offered me two copies of the book to be given away on my blog.

One of the main reasons I loved this book was the ancient art of saying things with flowers! I was aware that some flowers were sent in particular circumstances and I always remember my nan taking flowers to my granddad in hospital from his garden and telling me not to pick red and white as hospitals didn't like them as they represented blood and bandages however I was unaware of the many flowers and their meanings.

Pan Macmillan has launched a website to mark the publication of the book on 18th August and enables you to send a virtual bouquet to one of your friends. What's your message

  1. become a follower of my blog and comment on this post only (1 entry)

  3. Hi Sarah, This is the 3rd review I've seen of this book and all have been very positive. Isn't it strange about different flowers. I was always told not to buy Yellow chrysanth's as they were to do with funerals. Never heard about the red and white rule though.
    I've retweeted this. Thanks for the chance to enter.
