You have likely heard about birthstones, but did you know that each month (and sign) is associated with a flower, or several flowers. The flower that you are associated with depends on the month you were born in. The concept of birth flowers dates as far back as Ancient Rome, but they became extremely popular during the Victorian/Edwardian period.
