What is your Birth Flower?

Flowers are a beautiful medium for expression; they convey a message symbolising how we feel at a particular time. They often say more than words could and we use them for this very reason. We have different flowers with different meanings to help us express ourselves. An amazing quote on flowers I came across is “Perfumes are the feelings of flowers,” Heinrich Heine, The Hartz Journey. The colour of the flower is often a point for expression with the same flower in different colours having different meanings; the Tulip is an example of this:

  • Pink                       Caring
  • Purple                  Royalty
  • Red                        Love
  • White                    Forgiveness
  • Yellow                  Hopelessly in Love
  • Violet                   Faithfulness

We are also given a birth flower, which has a special meaning to us throughout our life, the following is a list of our Birth Flowers:

  • January               Carnation
  • February             Iris, Violet
  • March                   Daffodil

Flowers mean a lot to people are an amazing way to express your feelings.
