From the Station of the Lecturing Knight

This is the last article for me as the Lecturing Knight.  The year has been somewhat hectic to say the least, but very eventful with lots of fun in between and I thank you all for your support. 

Let me finish up with the birth flowers and continue with the month of July.  July’s birth flower is larkspur.  Each color variation of the larkspur has a different meaning pink means fickleness, white conveys a happy nature and purple normally represents a first love.  Generally, larkspur indicates strong bonds of love.  The other July flower is the water lily, which signifies purity and majesty.  August’s birth flower is gladiolus or ‘sword lily’.  Gladiolus represents remembrance, calm, integrity, and infatuation.  With gladiolus the recipient’s heart is being “pierced with love.”  The other August flower is the poppy.  A red poppy signifies pleasure, a white poppy is given for consolation and a yellow poppy wishes wealth and success.  September’s birth flower is the aster and are mainly symbols of powerful love.  The other September flower is the morning glory which is a simple symbol of affection.  The October birth flower is the pumpkin bloom.  Just kidding it’s actually the marigold which often is given as a sign of warm or fierce, undying love or as a way of saying that you’re content with being with the recipient.  The other October flower is the Cosmos which is a symbol of order, peace, and serenity.  November’s birth flower is the chrysanthemum.  A red one means “I love you,” a white one means innocence, purity, and pure love: a yellow one means slighted love.  December’s birth flower is the narcissus which embodies the idea that you want your beloved to stay just the way they are.  The other December flower is Holly, which symbolizes your wish for domestic happiness.  Now that you have all the knowledge about the months’ flowers start using the various flower meanings on your significant others!
