Comments Off on April: Delightful Daisies
April’s flower is the dainty daisy symbolizing happiness, innocence and purity. There are specific meanings associated with different varieties of daisies also with white daisies with a yellow centre carry the meaning of innocence. Pure white daisies with white centers are often associated with purity.
The daisy also symbolizes new beginnings, true love and harmony – making it a perfect flower for any kind of gift. They are particularly common in bouquets for mothers and children.
The word “daisy” comes from an Old English word meaning “day’s eye”. This association came about because daisies only open during the daytime.
A single daisy flower is actually made up of two separate flowers – the centre petals are one flower and this is surrounded by the “rays” of another flower. The daisy grows all year round and is naturally resistant to many diseases and pests, making it a perfect flower for those exploring their green thumb!

Comments Off on Daffodil: March’s Flower
Daffodils – the birth flower of March – are trumpet-shaped flowers that come in a variety of sizes and colours. Traditionally, they are a sunny yellow but can also be white or pastel yellow. Across many cultures, the daffodil has an uplifting meaning. Typically they symbolize creativity, inspiration, renewal, inner reflection and forgiveness. In Chinese culture the daffodil symbolizes good fortune, while in Japan it means joyousness. French people see the daffodil as a symbol of hope and in Wales the first to find a daffodil bloom will be blessed for the upcoming year.
Perhaps the most universally known symbol for the daffodil is its association with the Cancer association.
The daffodil flower is a trumpet shaped bloom on a slender stalk. The unique flowers can range from ½ an inch to 5 inches depending on the plant size. Native to the Mediterranean, they originally grew in Greece and Rome before becoming wild, and then being cultivated by Europe.
The message of the daffodil is uplifting and energizing. This makes it the perfect bloom for new beginnings and to express a positive sentiment to a friend. It’s a wonderful flower for births, housewarmings and to treat someone special.
