February Violets

 Shelley teacup trio 
"Violets" pattern

February
The shortest month of the year, and the only month with less than 30 days.  
2015 is a "common" year with 28 days in the month, as compared to 
29 days in February during "leap" years. 
  • Its birth flower is the violet (Viola) and the common primrose.
  • Its birthstone is the amethyst. It symbolizes piety, humility, spiritual wisdom, and sincerity.
  • Its zodiac signs are Aquarius (until February 18) and Pisces (February 19 on).

Happy Birthday to all my February birthday friends!

Oh my word, Linda, that is SUCH a beautiful Shelley trio!

Interesting too.

I have no idea what October's flower is? I need to look that one up!

Have a blessed day, tea friend! : - )

What a beautiful trio! And I did not realize violets were the birth flower for February, but that make sense!

I appreciate all the info I learn on your blog. I have a question for you. I was looking on the Royal Albert.com site and somebody mentioned a "Tennis set". What is a tennis set?

Hi Linda,
I am so pleased to meet you. Your Shelley Trio is gorgeous! I love Shelley teacups and have some but not a lovely violet. I didn't know that February's flower was Violet. So pretty! Thank you for visiting me. Happy Tea Day! Karen
