Bouquet interpretation: hot and cold

The fancy florist that I walk past on my way to my favourite cafe has started putting some comparatively affordable bouquets out the front. Here's what you get for $20:

A bouquet of purple and yellow flowers wrapped in brown paper and sitting in the bottom of an old trunk, because that's how you know this is a fancy florist

Iris: I have a message for you

Yellow roses: decrease of love, jealousy

Delphinium: fickleness, haughtiness

This bouquet is either saying "I've got a message for you: your haughtiness is making me love you less," or it's saying "I have a message for you, your fickleness is making me jealous." Both of which are pretty coherent as bouquet messages go, but probably not what you would have in mind if you decided to splash out for some nice flowers on a whim as you were walking past the florist.

Still, if you're looking for a bouquet for your manager who can't make up their mind about anything, or for your smug coworker who thinks they are better than you, this would be a great thing to pick up on your lunch break.

I'm sure that will help.
