Flowers - What do they say?

Valentine's Day Flowers with Meaning

A bouquet of red roses says "I love you". 

However a posy of Petunias means something entirely different.

I love to have fresh flowers in the house. I don't even need an occasion to want to buy them. These vases would be beautiful filled with some posies!
