Forget The October Birth Month Flower?

The merry marigold (Calendula) is the birth month flower for October, my favorite month of the year. October birthdays mean a little more to me because my birthday falls in late October on the cusp of the Libra-Scorpio zodiac signs. A fall birthday can be tons of fun especially with so many wonderful holidays just a few weeks away. I don’t give myself gifts for my birthday but I have been known to post pseudo-selfless blogs entailing the wish list that I’ve been too fearful to display. This will not be one of those birthday gift idea blogs.

So I believe that I speak for every October birthday owner, especially those claiming October 23rd as their special day, when I say that unique birthday gift ideas are surprisingly easy to come by this year. Think birth month flowers for an awesomely creative birthday gift for your October friend. Whether falling under Scorpio or Libra in the zodiac signs, and I’ve been placed under both, the decorative and beautiful appearance of flowers will lighten up our smiles and put a springy little step in our feisty autumn feet.

The Calendula (Marigold) is quite the bold little flower. The bright oranges and yellows certainly draw attention. Most Calendula designs resemble daisies and give a lovely “look at me!” appearance to flower arrangements. The petals can also be layered to give the flowers a bushy or full appearance. This quality lends a lot of body and mass to flower bouquets, arrangements and gardens. Anyone that sees the marigold falls in love with this flower as a part of their fall decorations. Why not celebrate a fall birthday with it also? Contact your local florist to surprise your beloved with an arrangement of the October birth month flower—the merry marigold (Calendula).
