The beauty of flowers has inspired civilizations to attribute symbolic and mystic meanings to each blossom. Throughout the ages, beautiful and poetic thoughts have been conveyed by the presentation of a single blossom, and whole messages were communicated by bouquets in which each flower chosen offered a significant idea.  In his plays and poetry, Shakespeare was a master at the use of symbolism through his choice of plants and flowers.  Join Master Gardener Volunteer Cathie Gifford from Cornell Cooperative Extension Come and hear about Shakespeare’s genius, including “And there’s Pansies, that’s for thoughts” (Hamlet).
