FYI: Tuzzy Muzzies

Sunday, October 06, 2013

During the English Elizabethan era, tussie mussies were frequently exchanged between lovers; many Elizabethan tussie mussies included Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), Marjoram (Origanum marjorana), Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) and the Mints (Mentha spp.).Tussie mussies soon became a secret code between lovers, as different flowers began to carry different meanings.
