The Carnation ... January's Birth Flower

Can you believe it, 2015?   Another year gone, and a new one's just begun.  Happy Birthday to all January babies!

I thought a mixed bouquet of carnations, your birth flower, would be a fitting gift! Carnations  may look fragile because of their delicate ruffled petals and long, slender stems, but they are surprisingly sturdy and long lasting. The flowers vary in shades of pinks, reds, yellows, purples, white and even striped petals. They are also fragrant, possessing a  slightly sweet, spicy scent comparable to cloves.  The most popular colors are

red ... signifying love

white representing devotion

and pink, a symbol of motherly love and widely used in Mother's Day flower arrangements.

Happy Birthday, January's Child
