June Discussion: The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh: The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions, but for Victoria Jones it’s been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, Victoria is eighteen and emancipated. With nowhere to go, she sleeps in a public park where she plants her own small garden. When a local florist discovers her talents, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through flowers.
