February's birth flower is the Primrose.  The alternate is Violet. I have this little primrose plant in my window.  It keeps company with the Amaryllis and brightens up the kitchen. I'll post a picture of the cozy pair for you in tomorrow's post.

The Victorian language of flowers gives the Primrose meaning as: Young Love, I can't live without you, and I am yours forever.  How appropriate for the month of February and Valentine's Day! 

*The Primrose has the botanic name of Primula vulgaris and is a low to the ground herb that flowers and is found mainly in western and southern Europe including the British Isles. It is also known as the Common Primrose and the English Primrose. It is one of the earliest spring flowers to bloom, and when left alone can quickly cover the ground in open woods and forests.

The Primrose is a relatively small flower, generally 25-40mm across and is normally found in a light yellow, almost white hue, with a bright yellow center. However, in some areas wild pink Primrose can be found growing, and as with the Carnation, cultivators have created Primrose in various other colors. *Botanical info source: babies online

Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you've got to let it grow. John Lennon
