PREFACE.

THIS little volume contains a brief sketch of the mythology and symbolism of flowers; some hints with regard to their practical utility; selections from the poetry inspired by them; and a full explanation of their language, in the shape of a Vocabulary and Flower Dialogues. A game for home is also suggested, to be played with these lovely gifts of nature. Thus, it is hoped, that alike in sunshine and shade-when June's red roses delight 'sn or "rain and wind beat dark December"—our readers may enjoy a perennial Bouquet.
