About The Language of Flowers

The Language of Flowers celebrates flowers and the stories that have been told about them through the ages. Master storyteller Diane Edgecomb brings to life the legends that surround favorite garden flowers revealing the deep meaning cultures around the world have found there. The centerpiece of the performance is the Persian legend of the Nightingale and Rose. Diane’s original adaptation of this exotic legend follows the journey of the rose through the ages, weaving together the heartfelt myths that surround it.

Many other flowers are celebrated, including the delightful Native American story about the Dandelion. Accompanied by harper Margot Chamberlain, the performance features songs and Celtic harp interludes as well as entertaining pieces about the mysterious “Language of Flowers,” celebrated in Victorian times. Diane’s humorous retelling of the Arthurian legend of Dame Ragnelle rounds out the program while answering the age old question: What do Women Desire the Most in the World?
