Queen of Hearts Tour Game

I'm playing the Sweet Treats for the Queen of Hearts tour game, part of Random Magic Tour: Vive L'Amour (Feb. 1-14), feel free to compete with me: How to play.

In the game of love, hearts play for keeps.
In the Queen of Hearts tour game, I play for this book:
The Language Of Flowers:
A Treasury of Verse and Prose Scented
by Penhaligon's Sheila Pickles

This lovely little tome is scented and has artistic illustartions of flowers. It explores the language of flowers, something that the Victorian era turned into art, and somethung that has always caught my fancy.

Here are my five hearts!

♥ #1 comes courtesy of Velvet
+ I commented and entered this lovely contest.

♥ #2 courtesy of Book ♥ Soulmates
+ I left a comment sharing my favorite flower and what it says to me.

♥ #3 is courtesy of The Book Worms
+I commented and picked this as my favorite quote:
“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.”
Isn't that lovely and true?
