Autumnal Equinox: Have you heard about Flower Astrology?

Autumnal Equinox: Have you heard about Flower Astrology?

With the Autumnal Equinox upon us (and trending on Twitter today #AutumnalEquinox) the romantics over here at Mills and Boon are especially loving the sound of Flower Astrology!

What, you’ve never heard of it? Flower Astrology is basically matching flowers and plants to a person’s star sign, so you can make them feel that extra bit special… or better still, they can make you feel that extra bit special once they know of your new-found fascination and decide to buy you a gift (ahem).
