Scarlet Quince-The Language of Flowers

So one of my main hobbies is cross stitching. Currently I'm working on a chart from Scarlet Quince called 'The Language of Flowers.' The artwork is by G.D Leslie. Don't ask me why I decided to stitch this as I have no logical answer. In an attempt to save my sanity, I stitch on it for a stretch of a few weeks and then it goes a way for a while. Sometimes a long while. Last weekend I got the urge to work on it a bit. This is my progress through yesterday.

So far I've finished the first two pages and started the third. There are 24 pages. I figure I'll have it finised in a decade....or two....
Stats on LoF:
Stitch count: 444 x 343
Stitched on 36 ct. linen, 2 over 2
Finished size (if it gets finished!): 25" x 19"
# of colors: 122
