You need to be careful with that sort of thing. Different flowers have different meanings. Sadly, I don't have my dictionary of flowers to hand right now. Remind me later.

Lilies are appropriate at funerals.

I think Trumgottist should fight Nick Cave to the death in order to become the alpha-Bad Seed.

If you do use such a coded message, you should give the dictionary too along with the flowers, or the receiver won't know what you meant. (As you can tell, I find that business a bit silly.)

Whoah! I'd be toast quickly, methinks. Wasn't it the Thread™ that should be killed off here, and not fellow forumites?

So he sent two roses, a crocus, a fuchsia and an orchid.

That means he wants to juggle an elephant on Thursday in order to make raspberry jam.

I think it was more a medieval era thing (when the intended meanings would have been more commonly known) but I'd have to look it up.

Go on Trumgottist. You can take him. We'd all be right behind you.

Can I have a tenner on Nick Cave, please?

Is this flower business like the straight equivalent of the handkerchief code?

Or the communication through the use of a hand fan, as used by young woman to talk to young man in...I think the renaissance or something? Only, it was in france. And the bad thing was, their mothers knew the code too, because they used to use it themselves when they were young.

Got the book (the wonderfully informative " How to Hold a Crocodile" I have a hardback copy of the 1981 edition) In the 19th century there were apparently flower dictionaries to aid interpretation.

Good alternatives to Roses could be

Bluebell - Constancy
Cedar Leaf - I live for thee
Jonquil - Please return my affection
Spearmint - Warmth of sentiment
Water Lily - Purity of heart

But probably best to avoid

Red Balsam - Touch me not
French Marigold - Jealousy
Lavender - Distrust
Evening Primrose - Inconstancy
Snakesfoot - Horror

Well, at least we can give you some Bluebells for always being constant with your "Whatever" and stuff.

Oh, and why do you distrust me? Don't you like me? You know I'm your friend, do you? *pokes*

You're German, and ergo untrustworthy.

One minute there's a handshake, and the next you're running around the rest of Czechoslovakia.

Why don't you trust me, Jatsie? Don't you love like me? You know I'm your lover friend, don't you?

Sorry, couldn't resist.
