Say it with Flowers

The language of love in Shakespeare's plays

01 January - 31 December 2013

Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens

  • General interest

Our popular exhibition Say it with Flowers, now due to run into its second year, explores the symbolism of flowers during the Elizabethan period and how Shakespeare used them in his works. It also looks at the Victorian language of flowers as a tool for communicating messages of love. The exhibition features some wonderful items from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's Collections, starting with some beautiful pieces of Elizabethan embroidery.

You can even share your personal love stories on a special Sweetheart Board.

The fragrant theme continues in the garden with a delightful heart-shaped Lavender Maze and a riot of blooms, forever changing with the seasons.
