In the dark and cold month of January, nothing lifts the spirits quite like ebullient, colorful flowers. Would you be as surprised as we were to learn that the Snowdrop is the flower for the month of January! How beautifully wonderful to see these beauties push through the snow.

The carnation comes in several different colors, which convey different meanings, much like roses. A pink carnation means affection, while a red carnation means ‘I love you.’

White carnations mean pure love, striped carnations mean regret that a love is not shared, and yellow means rejection or disappointment.

The Snowdrop

The snowdrop used to be considered bad luck because it always seemed to grow in graveyards, but nowadays, this delicate flower signifies hope and beauty.
