I have to say November is my favourite month of the year and not only because it’s my birthday month! I love the beautiful warm spring days, the cool breezes and evening walks and of course all the gorgeous flowers that come into season. This month we celebrate not only my birthday but my daughters first birthday too, which got me wondering about our birth month flower.
For centuries the meanings of flowers have fascinated people. This age-old art form of understanding and deciphering the different meanings behind flowers has been a little lost for the past few years, but it’s something I’ve always found very fascinating.
After looking into my own birth month I’ve put together all the months and their associated flowers, so you can find out your birth month flower too. People love to dress up their gardens with flowers that represent them but it can also be a great way to add a special element into your wedding bouquet.
