Hawthorn floriography - for hope
Floriography, also known as the language of flowers, is the practice of attributing meanings and symbolism to flowers, and has been recorded in traditional cultures around the world for thousands of years.
Hawthorn is steeped in mythology and legend. Historically it’s also known as the fairy tree and was believed to be a gateway to the otherworld, inhabited by powerful fairies. Young girls wanting to ensure their beauty in the coming year rose at dawn to bathe in dew gathered from the flowers. A witches besom (broomstick) is traditionally made of hawthorn wood. Perhaps Britain’s most famous tree the Holy Thorn of Glastonbury is a hawthorn tree said to date back to Joseph of Arimathea, which blooms twice a year. Once in May and again around Christmas, a sprig of which is traditionally sent to the Queen to decorate her breakfast table on Christmas morning.
