What’s a Nosegay?

Oh for heaven’s sake. Do people really talk like that? Only if you live in historical novels…  a Nosegay is a small bunch of flowers given in sentiment. The gay aspect is that it makes us feel happy which usually is the case when we receive a bouquet of flowers. Long before there were floral shops, admirers would stroll the countryside and pick small handfuls of wildflowers or go into the garden, clip roses and chrysanthemums, tie them in a bow and present them to their lover. The scent of flowers can produce a profound tranquil effect when brought to the nasal senses. Who doesn’t love a Nosegay?
