Simple Pleasures: Garden Tussie-Mussie

From my garden

Daisy: Gentleness, Innocence, Loyal love

Phlox: Sweet Dreams

A tussie-mussie or poesy is a small circular nosegay of flowers and herbs, tightly gathered and designed to carry a special message in the language of flowers. The traditional tussie-mussie is composed of fragrant herbs surrounding one central flower, a rose.
