Countdown to Mother's Day Gift Guide

Because of my passion for old Victorian and vintage items I love to explore the traditions of our past. During the this period the type and color of the flower you sent had deep meaning. Even sending a card with their image would be sending a distinct message.  Flowers are also associated with your birth month.  You might say that during the Victorian age the Language of flowers bloomed.

 This week's picks are dedicated to those mother's born during the months of January and February

Snow Drops and Carnation in colors of White, Pink and Red
Conveys a message of deep love, affection, happiness, loyalty, constancy and strength
