Spring blooms for Easter

With the days getting longer and the temperatures just a tad warmer, it's easy to believe that spring will soon be here. And shortly after the equinox is Easter.  Knowing that it will arrive faster than a bunny hop, I couldn't resist this charming photo of a stuffed rabbit and wrapped chocolate eggs posed before some beautiful yellow daisies.

A Bouquet for Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day being celebrated this Thursday it seemed appropriate that our weekly flower photo should play into the theme.  After all, nothing says "Be My Valentine" more than hearts and flowers, especially when the heart contains chocolate and the flowers are a beautiful bouquet.

February's Birthstone, the Violet

Symbolizing faithfulness, humility and chastity, the violet is the birth flower for the month of February.  Made popular in Victorian times the intent when given by a man to his love was that he would always be true.

While it comes in a variety of colour,  mauve and purple are most in keeping with the birthstone for the month, the amethyst.  We give you some of these pretty flowers with this week's photo.
