I thought it might be fun to write about the Flowers of the Month!
Let’s talk about April.
First, a little history.
Birth month flowers refer to certain species that are associated with each month of the year. It is said that the characteristics of each flower will pass down to the people who are born that month. You can also see them mentioned as “flowers by month” but they refer to the same thing.
The Origins of the Flowers by Month
Culturally speaking, it is important to see what flower to choose for a gift, depending on its characteristics (such as color, appearance or scent). But how did we get to offering flowers on birthdays? People think that the Romans were the first ones to use flowers to celebrate such events. They had seasonal flowers which were more than mere decorations since they offered them as gifts for people’s birthdays. As such, most likely this is how birth month flowers appeared. But let’s see what flowers fit each month!
Daisy, Sweet Pea
In April, we can already see spring in full bloom. (Those of you who know me are aware that Mr. T, my desert tortoise, who has been hibernating all winter, peeks his head out in April to welcome Spring!). But which are the birth month flowers for this month? April comes with the daisy and the sweet peas for those who are born now. Daisies are used to represent purity, loyal love and innocence. Yellow daisies are also popular choices when it comes to giving flowers. Moreover, friends give this flower to each other to signify keeping a secret.
Daisies are no longer boring! A professionally designed bouquet of all daisies, as seen here, is long-lasting and refreshing. When we add other flowers, WHOLA!
The sweet pea symbolizes blissful pleasure. However, they are also used to represent goodbye. The fragrance of this flower keeps flies at bay, so maybe this is a good kind of goodbye!
