Traditional Birthday Flower Guide

You have all heard of birth stones...and you have all heard of the traditional gift list...

...but have you heard of the traditional birthday flower guide?

If not....today is your lucky day!

I was taking a break one day and found this list online at a site called homestead garden. I have never heard of it, and decided to share!

January~~Carnation

February~~Violet

March~~Jonquil

April~~Sweet Pea or Daisy

May~~Lily of the Valley

June~~Rose

July~~Larkspur

August~~Gladiolus

September~~Aster

October~~Calendula

November~~Chrysanthemum

December~~Narcissus

I hope you enjoyed seeing which one you are! (at least no one is a Dandelion)

What is YOUR birthday flower? Mine is May (lily of the valley) Not my favorite flower…but it’s pretty!

I hope you all will join me for the weekly garden flaunting party! The party starts Thursday evening and closes on Sunday night. It is so much fun to see what others around the world are flaunting each week!

Hehe Dandelions are cute in the spring... BUT I don't like them at all!!! They spread everywhere!!!
I try to take them before they dry up and send their little seeds off... but then I have a neighbour that just doesn't care.. and they have 1000's!!!! :-(

mrsben said...

Oh I'm a Narcissus. Guess it beats being a Dandelion and/or a Pointsetta.
My daughter just dropped in and she noticed your picture and said "hey Mom who's that, she could be your daughter. She looks more like you than I do". She thought YOU were cute! (She never says that about me.)
HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A GOOD DAY. {{Brenda}}
