My beautiful baby girl is getting so big- on July 12th she is turning 4 years old! Gone are the days when I had to feed her by hand or get her dressed, my little firecracker is very independent and wants nothing more than to feel grown up. I decided that I am going to arrange her very first flower delivery on her birthday this year, so I started researching “birth flowers”. Apparently, like birth stones, there is a flower that corresponds to every month of the year. Perhaps this was a tradition created by florists, but it works!
It just so happens that July’s birth flowers are the Water Lily and Larkspur. Now, I really don’t know where I can get water lilies for delivery, besides the Monet print hanging in the hall! But I do know about larkspur. What a beautiful delicate flower, that perfectly captures my little blondie’s kind spirit. I think we are going to splurge, and go for the Wonderful Day Bouquet. I can use it for a centerpiece at her party, and I know she will love the purple and pink flowers that so reflect her joyful heart.
