Unbelievably, I found *The language of fruit*. So here we have the gooseberry and it's meaning. A fitting companion piece to my language of flowers series...

Thank you shitake,taniwha and AF.

taniwha: These were at one of those church hall flower/fruit shows. If you're not familiar with them do try to get to one. They're usually in the suburbs or villages. I love them! The dedication to presentation is quite staggering. Uniform rows of beans, onions with little collars and wondrous flower arrangements featuring enormous delphiniums and tons of sweet peas. God! I sound like a frustrated WI member!!

My Young Friend is dragged along to these shows and fetes all summer with a long suffering expression on his face and his eyeballs a-rolling......

Ah the joys of the Village Produce Association :)

But the language of fruit?!? Seriously did the Victorians not know when to stop when it came to things symbolizing other things?? You've got to wonder :D

Spiderbaby: I was shocked when I discovered the language of fruit and a little disappointed too as I was planning on inventing my own version...

You still should. Who's to say the other fruit language translator got it right? there are bound to be all sorts of dialects and such like :)

But I fear my own language of fruit would read like some disgusting fruit kink fest. I'd best stick with the Victorians and some of that sounds a bit rude as it is....
