The Language of Flowers was a popular form of communication in Victorian times.
Artist and photograher Joy Gregory takes this language as the theme for her exhibtion.
Joy talks about the technique she uses - cyanotype - to produce her prints. And she explains the Victorian's symbolic use of flowers: a sunflower meant 'your devout admirer', tulips said 'the perfect lover', elderflower meant 'compassion' and the rosebud indicated a 'heart ignorant of love'.
The Language of Flowers is at the Zelda Cheatle Gallery in Mayfair, London until 30 April 2004
