What are April's birth month flowers? 

In April, two flowers take centre stage: daisies and sweet peas. These beauties bring a burst of colour and a touch of whimsy to any floral arrangement. Daisies, with their cheerful demeanour, and sweet peas, exuding delicate elegance, perfectly encapsulate the essence of springtime. 

Why does April have two birth flowers? 

Some months, such as April, are lucky in that they have two blooms associated with them. The practice of assigning birth flowers to each month varies across cultures and traditions, and while many months have only one designated flower, a few, like April, enjoy the distinction of having two. This dual celebration allows for a richer tapestry of floral symbolism and provides individuals with more options to connect with the flowers that resonate with them personally.

What do daisies symbolise? 

Ah, daisies! These charming blooms are more than just pretty faces. Symbolising purity, innocence, and new beginnings, daisies infuse any space with a sense of freshness and optimism. These cheerful blooms are often associated with youthfulness and the joys of childhood, making them a popular choice for celebrations and special occasions. Additionally, daisies are often seen as symbols of loyalty and love, making them a meaningful gift for friends, family, and loved ones. Whether adorning a bouquet or brightening up a garden, daisies bring a sense of lightness and positivity wherever they bloom.

What do sweet peas symbolise? 

Now, let's talk about sweet peas—the epitome of grace and appreciation. Sweet peas are known to symbolise blissful pleasure, gratitude, and fond memories. With their soft pastel hues and enchanting fragrance, they evoke feelings of joy and nostalgia, making them a delightful addition to any floral arrangement.
