The birth flowers for the month of January are carnations and snow drops.
I do love carnations, some find them a bit old fashioned but I just love the shape and their frilly appearance. They also come in array of fabulous colours so compliment any arrangement. White carnations symbolise pure love and good luck, light red for admiration and a dark red would represent deep love and affection. So they are a flower to be used in any bouquet if someone means a lot to you or maybe in a wedding bouquet.
Snow drops are just so dainty and remind me of winter, probably through their name (funny that). I love to see them peering through the snow if we get any during our winters here in the UK. They seem to be a bit on the warm side at present so we may have to wait a while for some snow. Snow drops are the first flower of the year, taking us through a transition from winter into spring so therefore these flowers symbolise hope for the up and coming year ahead.
If you are considering and floral arrangement or tribute then bear in mind including these flowers this month. Thank you for reading and if there is anything you do require regarding flowers, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
Bye for now…..
