Event Description

The Language of Flowers

In the 19th century, flowers and plants were given special associations and were used to convey feelings and emotions. As botanical motifs found their way onto gravestones, they took on hidden meanings. Discover these exquisite carvings during a tour with Elise Ciregna, the Trust’s Curator of Historic Collections. Learn how the Victorians communicated coded messages with poppies, lilies, ivy and oak leaves on their beautifully carved memorial stones.

Meet at Main Gate. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water; this is a 2-hour walk (with frequent stops) over varied terrain. Admission: $9.
