BIRTH FLOWER OF THE MONTH: April..."The Daisy"


The Daisy...

Symbolism of the Daisy...
The daisy represents INNOCENCE, MODESTY, STABILITY, and CHEERFULNESS. I don't know how on earth a flower that comes in so many bright colors is considered modest, but hey, whatever they say ...we're gonna roll with it.



Color Variety...
Daisies come in literally DOZENS of colors (one of their best attributes!) You are most likely to see white, pink, red, yellow, and purple. I seriously love stocking our cooler up with gerbs because of the bright, GORGEOUS colors they add in my studio!

Fun Fact...
OK, hold onto your seats because we actually got TWO fun facts for you this month! (Come on, admit it, you secretly love knowing random, useless information like this!)

1. Gerbera daisies actually are from South Africa orginally. That is quite a hike. Thank you kindly for somehow making your way all the way over here!

2. The word "daisy" comes from the phrase "day's eye". Daisies actually tend to open up more as the sun rises, and then when the sun sets, they close up more and stay that way during the night (much like our eyes do, you catching on now?) So I guess you can say as we drift off to dream land, so do they.

So there you go, you learn something new everyday!



Happy Birthday April babies!
(PS. Your alternate birth flower is the SWEET PEA! They are called that because of their sweet fragrance! Mmmmm, lovely!)

Daisies are my favorite flower - mostly because they are so cheerful! Thanks for all the fun facts!
