Description

Inspired by the Victorian-era language of flowers, a posy is a small, round bouquet of flowers, herbs and plants meant to convey a message, such as dahlias for gratitude, sunflowers for adoration or thyme for bravery. These floral poems have become Teresa Sabankaya's signature. Brides want them for their weddings, but a posy is a lovely gift any time of year, and one that readers can easily put together from their garden or with blooms from their local florist.

In The Posy Book, Sabankaya shares step-by-step instructions, floral recipes for more than 20 posies and ideas for seasonal variations. A modern floral dictionary, with 12 original paintings by celebrated illustrator Maryjo Koch, will help readers craft their own posies filled with personal meaning.

Review quote

This gifted flower grower, designer, and keeper of floral meanings has collected her best message-laden posy recipes to fill The Posy Book with beautiful blooms that tell a story. I hope, like me, that you will be inspired to adopt her modern language of flowers when you share botanical sentiments from the garden.--Debra Prinzing, Founder of Slow Flowers(TM)
