Violets

Site Title

In the language of flowers, it has had various symbolic meanings. Its color may indicate the love of truth or, conversely, the truth of love. In keeping with the latter, it is said that the tomb of the Roman tyrant Nero was decorated in the spring with violets by unknown persons who had secretly admired or loved him. Violets were often used as symbols of fasting or mourning. Source : http://www.americanvioletsociety.org/HistoryTraditions/Traditions.htmPhoto © Daniela Serra 2016 – All Rights Reserved
