Hearts and Flowers

It is said that in the 16th century the Sultan of Persia displayed his affection by presenting a crimson tulip to his beloved as a symbol of the burning flame of his love. The tulip’s velvety black center represents a lover’s heart, darkened by the heat of passion.   Tulip is the flower of spring and symbolises imagination, dreaminess, the perfect lover and the red tulip expresses irresistable, undying, passionate love.

Our friend Philippa who is helping us design a labyrinth walk for our wedding came to see us this week and brought these delicious heart shaped cookies.

I used this portrait of my hands taken by our wedding photographer Emma Solley to make a Valentine’s Day card for Steve.
