April’s birth flowers are the daisy and the sweet pea! By April, spring is in full swing, and these birth month flowers are ready to express its happy plans and intrigues.
The daisy conveys innocence, loyal love, and purity.
Yet, the daisy is also a flower given between friends to keep a secret; the daisy means “I’ll never tell!”
The Sweet Pea
The other April flower is the sweet pea. With their lovely scent, sweet peas are a lovely flower to grow.
While sweet peas may signify blissful pleasure, they are also used to say good-bye. Perhaps Shakespeare had sweet peas in mind when he wrote the immortal words: “Parting is such sweet sorrow.”
Then, of course, there are the good-byes we’re glad of, such as saying so long to flies; these insects find the sweet pea’s fragrance offensive and will leave its environs in a hurry.
