Bisexual women and lesbians used to give violets to women they were wooing, symbolizing their "Sapphic" desire. In a poem, Sappho described herself and a lover wearing garlands of violets. The giving of violets was popular from the 1910s to the 1950s.

Violet bouquet. Reminds me of the bunch mom picked for me years ago. I have them dried and think of that Kodak memory of my heart. Love you Mom!
