I've fallen in love with the old British setting, the characters, and your new of of telling a love story through flowers. It was very cute and easy to read. I love that even though she got what she wanted, which was a proposal from Adrian, that she refused and through that she learned to love him.
I learned a lot about flowers from this story and ended up looking up each image of the flower mention to see what they look like. Some flowers looked the same as others though even if they had different names. But it's cool! I'm not an expert on flowers. :D I really love this story! At least for now, until I read through the rest.

What an innocently sweet story! I like the last line "In a nearby village, a young girl sat in her garden, plucking petals from a flower. "He loves me. He loves me not. He loves me…"" It seems to suggest that the same story might happen somewhere else and brings a sense of continuation to the ending of this story. Thanks!

Hi! I really enjoyed reading this story and thought it was absolutely wonderful! Great job! Also, what did you use to find all the meanings of the flowers? Did you use a website? If you could write back, that would be great! Thank you!

This is seriously one of my favorite stories. Its original, well written, and absolutely adorable! I loved how you had the conversations with the flowers. I never knew that they could have so many different meanings! I loved the story and characters, but Jack is probably my favorite he reminds me a lot of one of my best friends :)

Cute. Cute. Cute. I am so in love with this story, with the whole world you've created in Regency England. You're amazing! Keep writing, please!

Also, I think it's adorable that Adrian's friends set him up. It's so adorable.
"I truly do believe they belong in Bedlam. In fact, I'm going to try and have them committed as soon as we get you home." Makes me grin every time.

Oh nooo! Annabelle's adventure has gone consistently awry since the very beginning! I'm afraid it will spoil her taste for escapades. No wonder she prefers puttering around the garden, I think she might be genetically inclined to botch anything more perilous. I love her.

And angry Annabelle makes another appearance! This time, though, I think she's being just a bit irrational, because it is traditional and honorable to ask the father first. My brother-in-law came and took my parents out together a full three months before proposing to my sister. He explained exactly how he was going to budget his salary to take care of her. Spreadsheets were involved.
Anyway. Poor Adrian, getting thrown out of the house! Sad sad. Annabelle is perhaps going overboard with her new assertive side here. Oh well. Necessary bumps on the road to balance. But she does raise a valid point about avoiding Adeline. This is not my favorite chapter, just because I don't like seeing them on the outs, even though I know they're getting a happy ending.

Ooh, angry Annabelle.
I was cringing the entire time, hoping that she would give him the chance to explain and all would be well again immediately, but I admit that this is more logical, and makes for a better story. And the buckbean! Nice touch.
By the way, you've spoiled me for almost all romance. I know that probably no boy I ever date will know the specifically poetic meanings of flowers, but I can't help wishing for one that does! Maybe I'll have to marry a horticulturist ... an anthropological horticulturist ...

Ooh, I love this chapter! It's so sweet the way he refuses to believe that she's not the one for him.

Oh my goodness I love it when Melanie 'hints'! He finally gets it! Love, love, love, love, love.
