February spotlight: birth flowers. Please see the Meetings page
for information about primroses.
This month is associated with St. Valentine’s Day and red roses.
However, the flower for the month is Violet. The flower
symbolises faithfulness, humility and chastity. Gifting violets in
the Victorian era conveyed the message’ I’ll always be true’. The
flower is found in shades of blue, mauve as well as yellow and
cream. One must remember that an older English name for the
plant is "heartease."
