I am fascinated by the language of flowers, both their Latin names and the Victorians subtle system of sending messages by flowers. They produced many books on the language but they could differ in meanings, and could over time change meanings. No problem wondering about the meaning with a postcard one can send it directly through the post. In this case it was sent with a unrelated, and practical, message on 3rd September 1909
Dear Mum, Received box and bedding allright but couldn't make out what day you were coming as you never said but shall be up to meet that train today Friday if not tomorrow. With love Bert and Nance. The card was posted in the morning at 10:15, I wonder if 'Mum' received it before she set off for the station.
