"The Victorian language of flowers was used to express emotions: honeysuckle for devotion, azaleas for passion, and red roses for love.  But for Victoria Jones, it has been more useful in communication feelings like grief, mistrust and solitude.  After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings."
