Each of the twelve months of the Western calendar is associated with a flower. This allows us to work out which flower marks our birthday.
January: Carnation (or Snowdrop)
April: Tulip (or Daisy)
May: Sunflower (or Lily of the Valley)
June: Rose (or Honeysuckle)
August: Lily (or Gladiolus)
September: Morning Glory (or Forget-me-not)
October: Marigold (or Carmellia)
December: Holly (or Narcissus)
In Pure Spirit
Would you ever buy flowers for someone just because they tied in with their birthday? Would you pluck flowers from the wild or buy from a shop?
