Flirtatious flowers

By Debra Dobbins

Webster’s notes that “flirt” came from the Old French word fleurer, which meant “to touch lightly” and literally meant “to move from flower to flower.” The French word for flower is fleur.

As noted in a recent blog, sending flowers can be a fun and fascinating way to flirt, because flowers stand for various thoughts and emotions. For more details, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Language_of_flowers.
