Flowery Language Tags

What's up, buttercup? I have something brand-new for you:
Ode to Spring/Earth Day/May Day Tags!
(Or Flowery Language Tags for "short".)

You have possibly never come across anything as monumental as these tags before, and your mind is spinning with all the earth-shattering repercussions the preceding sentence holds for you:

  • You imagine attaching the tag to a seed packet! Then you can hand it to someone, send it off in a card or letter, or maybe punch a hole in the top of the tag and attach it to a copy of the month's message.

  •  You visualize yourself taping the tag to a Popsicle stick, and inserting it into a container as a plant marker. Incredible! What an amazing gift for Earth Day (or any other day) you've just thought up!

  • You consider taping the tag to a wooden skewer and including it with a bunch of flowers from your garden...or nursery or florist. Hmmm, isn't it almost May Day? What timing! The blossom one is just perfect for that...

These are what I like to think of as "Tokens of Affection" tags. They're just a little something to let someone know you've been thinking of them. For your VT sisters, and everyone else you'd like to acknowledge with a sweet little gift.


P. S. Buttercups are really hard to find where I live. (It's just as well. Turns out, they are poisonous?) I came across a packet of Burgess Buttercup squash seeds at Home Depot from Ferry-Morse.
