5-STAR REVIEW by Carla Trueheart for Readers' Favorite

Floriography Today by author S. Theresa Dietz covers just about everything you need to know about the meaning and symbolism of flowers. Included in the book is an introduction that explains the meaning of flowers and how those meanings have become lost or confused over time. The reader will then learn how to use the book and what is important with flower reading, such as symbolic meanings, folklore and facts, color meaning, and possible powers of particular flowers or plants. Here and there, the author has sprinkled little poems or sayings that add much to the book. The middle section of the guide breaks down each flower in alphabetical order for ease of location, and assigns each flower a meaning and a fact. All the flowers are covered from A-Z, making this a terrific reference guide and companion for those who want to understand the symbolic meanings of various flowers, trees, and plants. 

Not only does Floriography Today provide meanings of flowers, it also includes a handy Plant Name Index so you can hop to each flower location with ease. As a reader, I was especially excited to learn about roses and their color meanings — red for beauty and love, yellow for friendship, and many others — and the folklore and traditions surrounding the rose. Any flower I could think of was in the guide, and I spent much time reading through and learning about plants and flowers. At the end, there is even an index for symbolic meanings, such as wishes, art, luck, beauty, desire, and love. S. Theresa Dietz has done meticulous research on this topic, and it shows. I would highly recommend the book to those seeking knowledge in the field of flowers, plants, and trees - brides, florists, gardeners and flower lovers!

About the author

Long before moving from South Florida to The Enchanted Mountains of Western New York State, Suzanne Dietz...writing under her studious non-fiction pseudonym, "S.Theresa Dietz"...took an immense interest in the subject of Floriography. As a matter of fact, her 440 page tour de force on the subject of the symbolic meanings and the possible powers of trees, plants and flowers began well over twenty years ago. Floriography Today started out as a short handwritten list on one side of lined school paper, to ultimately grow to be the extensive, concise, meticulously researched, consolidated, and impeccably organized reference book on the subject of Floriography that it is. 


Destined to be a classic reference on the subject, Suzanne's exemplary skills in research and information organization will serve readers of this reference book for generations to come. 

Suzanne lives quietly alone in a small rural town in The Enchanted Mountains of Western New York. She wishes Peace to you, whoever and wherever you are.

The gorgeous engagement ring on my finger mimics my happiness. 

I feel so sparkly, glittery, and full of promise, because I absolutely know he's that boy. 
The boy I want to marry. My prince. My happily ever after. 

But then our pastor starts asking lots of questions. 
His parents say I haven’t dealt with my past.  
I have horrible wedding disaster dreams. 
I can’t find the perfect dress. 
I have to manipulate him to get my way. 
An old boyfriend asks me to run away with him. 
My best friend says I'm going to ruin everything. 
And forever starts to sound like a really long time. 

Which totally freaks me out and makes me question everything I know. 

Should best friends get married? Will my past affect our relationship? Are my horrible dreams a warning? Will I ever find a dress? Could his sexiness be clouding my judgment? Am I going to ruin everything? Or is it just a case of cold feet? 

And then I have to decide. Am I willing to give up on true love forever, or am I going to listen to my heart and marry him?

Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, are altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.
