Picking The Right Flowers For The Right Sign

Every sign of the Horoscope has it’s own unique idiosyncrasies. Whether it be colors, gemstones, planets, moods, etc. certain signs will be drawn to different flora and fauna just like each sign represents a particular energy or style of that sign.
This being Spring it’s time to relish what beauty nature gives to us so what particular flowers are you drawn to and do they coincide with what sign you are?
I had always thought that “Lily Of The Valley” was not only a flower I adored but being a Taurus one that went with my sign. Well, was I surprised, and see if you are too starting with (of course) my sign.

If you’re so inclined to know more about this see Zodiac Sign Flowers, they have some nice information.
Now that you know what flowers to pick for your Horoscope sign what can you do with the information? You could start a Horoscope themed garden, or give your friends one of their plants on a birthday! How about a Zen/Horoscope garden? What fun!
Now I know why I’m so good at growing my roses! My roses were the best in the neighborhood in the old days. Oh the smell! I have always liked poppies, violets, palms and figs too so I’m pleasantly surprised. Not that it really matters because I love to garden and I will grow anything I’m interested in. I have grown poppies from bulbs and it’s great fun.
Did you know what kind of plants and flowers went with your birthday and did any surprise you?

I hope you like the geekiness and topics that I write about in Wonderland. This is an older blog so I don't write very often anymore, however, the posts from the past are still enjoyable and I wrote on a plethora of subjects so give my Wonderland a try you may like it. Big hug!

BTW I have Comment Moderation turned on for the rude ones who have to leave fake comments with poorly hidden links in them. You ruin it for everyone but you already know that.
