A Menopausal Language of Flowers
I reckon this time of year makes me think of a rainbow of flowers in every yard. We’ve been getting our April Showers, to the May Flowers should be right pretty.
When I was younger, I right enjoyed the Victorian idea of a “Language of Flowers.” Who’s to say we can’t do something like that for Menopause, too? I reckon my flower would be forget-me-nots, because I need all the help I can get to remember just about everything!
Here’s a few more flowers and what I’d reckon to be their menopausal meanings:
- Agrimony or Campanula – Thankfulness for still being around and kicking!
- Baby’s Breath – Because we’re sure not having any more of our own
- Yellow Carnations – For when we feel all down in the dumps
- Coriander or Lime Blossoms – For when we’ve lost that bedroom-drive
- Elderflower – Because we’re turning into elders, whether we like it or not
- Aloe or Marigold– For when we’re grieving lost youth
- Lobelia – For those right nasty mood swings
- Olive – Because we’re searching for some peace and quiet!
- Poppies – For all those nights when we just can’t sleep
That’s all for now. Take care, y’all!
