Monthly Birth Flowers and their meanings

Since reading ‘The Language of Flowers” (Vanessa Diffenbauch)  last year, I’ve become fascinated by flowers and their meanings. This fascination lead to me to discover birth flowers. Each month has a birth flower (like a birth stone) that holds a special meaning.

And Finally…

Birth flowers can differ from country to country. However, I’ve concentrated on the UK birth flowers and their meanings in this post.

The language of flowers, in general, is a fascinating topic and I’m looking forward to sharing more of my discoveries in the coming months 🙂

I have created some birth flower star sign prints of the floral images you see in this post. Personalised framed versions can be found in my Not On The High Street shop as well as my Etsy store.

Have an inspired day
