February's Flower

In the early 1900's
Lady Mary Wortley Montague
developed a language of flowers in
which significant sentimental
meanings and thoughts
were assigned to many flowers

February's traditional flower
is the blue violet and
its sentimental meaning is:
faithfulness.

I've always loved violets. I was going to move back north if those were from your yard today!

love, Love, LOVE the wood violets. They always have such intense scent. And besides, they were Grams and are Mom's favorites too.

I should have mentioned that they are my favorite little flower!

That's a very appropriate sentiment to raise in this month of "Love". Red hearts carry emotion. Blue violets carry it a step further. By combining emotional attachments to faithfulness you have REAL love. I love violets.

Roses are red my love,
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet my Love,
But not as Sweet as you!

My sweetheart just sang that to me when I asked, "wasn't there a song with Violets in it in the 50's?"

So yes there was, now I remember, it went like this:

Roses are red my love,
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet my Love,
But not as Sweet as you!

But it sounded better when she sang it!
Love you Northern Lady!!!!!
