Birth Flowers

 

Hello Everyone! 

 

In today’s blog post I will share with You my expertise about Birth Flowers. I love making floral tattoos and this topic is especially close to my heart. Every month has a unique flower ( or more as we’ll find out ) that is a representation of it, creating something like a floral horoscope. Probably most people are aware of their horoscope sign. You were Born on the 14 th of June? Obviously – TWINS! But do You know what Your Birth Flower is? Let’s dive into the sea of those beautiful plants and discover the connections between every month and the BIRTH FLOWERS
