To those with Birthdays in August Wishing you a very happy birthday. Happy Birthday to you..Happy birthday to you... Happy Birthday God bless you.. Happy birthday to you. and many more! This one is created with some things that might happen in August. The flowers are Gladiolus because it is the traditional flower of August and a poppy as it is newer flower for August. more later. The green Paridot is the Birthstone for August. A poem for those born in August called the Paridot. "Wear a Peridot or for thee, No conjugal fidelity, The August born without this stone, `Tis said, must live unloved alone." A tiny island known as Zabargard (owned by Egypt) is documented as the first source of peridot, dating back as far as four thousand years. Early Crusaders who visited St. John's Island (now called Zabargard) introduced this gem to Europe upon return from battle. Peridot is mentioned in many ancient references as chrysolite. It is mentioned throughout the Bible, and early Christians considered it sacred. Today still, Catholic Bishops traditionally wear a ring of peridot and amethyst as a symbol of purity and morality. The peridot was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature. Napoleon once made a gift of peridot to Josephine as a symbol of undying love and admiration. In ancient times, it was said that a dream about peridot foretold impending danger. Healing qualities of peridot Peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty. Only spiritual or clear-minded persons should use peridot. The person with too many earthly problems will not be able to understand the beauty of the Peridot. The very spiritual can wear peridot in a necklace with the stone at the base of the throat to feel its soothing effect. Used in a necklace, peridot is a protector against negative emotions. Peridot has been known to have healing effect on the gall bladder and liver. Sources of peridot Peridot is a gem variety from the olivine mineral group. The bottle green color is called peridot. Yellowish green is chrysolite. Olive green is olivine. Sources of peridot include: St. John's Island (Egypt), United States (Arizona and Hawaii), Myanmar, Burma, Australia, Norway, South Africa and Brazil. August birth flower. These flowers look like a sword with their tall stalks, hence their being named after the gladiators. This flower means remembrance, generosity, sincerity and it also symbolisms strength of character. August's birth flower is gladiolus, or 'sword lily.' Gladiolus represents remembrance, calm, integrity, and infatuation. With gladiolus, the recipient's heart is being "pierced with love."Named for the shape of their leaves, gladioli – from the Latin word “gladius,” meaning sword – have a history than spans from Africa to the Mediterranean. Symbolizing strength and moral integrity, gladioli also represent infatuation, with a bouquet conveying to a recipient that they pierce the giver’s heart with passion. Striking and colorful with towering stems, this August birth flower and 40th wedding anniversary flower evoke the drama of Roman gladiators. The other August flower is the poppy.The flower symbolism associated with poppies is beauty, magic, consolation, fertility and eternal life. Poppies denote sleep, rest and repose. In modern times, poppies have been associated with Flanders fields as an emblem of those who died in World War I. Poppies represent the loyalty and faith between lovers. Uses for Poppies Poppies have been used for centuries in seasonings, medicine and health tonics. Tea from poppies has been used for its calming effect. The oriental poppy is the only poppy that contains opium, but other poppies do have mildly sedative effects, too. Water made from poppies is said to remove wrinkles and freshen the skin. Poppies can also be used for dye and for adding flavor and texture to breads and pastries. In this one is a rare Pink Poppies that my mother grew. My father took the photo of it. Wishing you a very very Happy Birthday. Hugs Connie
