December's flowers include the Narcissus which symbolizes self-love, self-esteem and vanity. The Poinsetta is traditionally known as the Christmas flower brought from Mexico by Joel Poinsett, in 1828. He was a botanist, physician and first US Ambassador to Mexico. Is capitalized because it was named after him.
Sagittarius Nov' 22-Dec' 21 Is optimistic and always in good spirits. Is cheerful and upbeat and believe there's a positive side to everything. Capricorn Dec' 22-Jan' 19, is pragmatic and senses if a new concept is going to work; great at improvising too.
Garden tip from TBG: Check for freeze warnings. Cover the tips of sensitive cacti with styrofoam cups. Use frost cloth to cover aloes, citrus, and other sensitive plants when below 28°F. Reduce watering and irrigation to minimum, but water thoroughly when needed. Plant bare-root roses and fruit trees. Choose Aleppo or Mondell pine as live Christmas tree, for planting in a low water-use landscape.
The month of December is host to a unique and beautiful group of birthstones. Both Sagittarius and Capricorn carry with them a beautiful selection of stones to represent their birth time in December.
In modern times, we have adopted the Blue Topaz, which is derived from the Sanskrit word "tapas", meaning fire. It is known for its cooling properties, which are extended even to a bad temper.
Turquoise has also become a popular choice of birthstone in modern times, and it represents friendship and love. It protects from negative energy and is said to bring good fortune to its wearer.
Chrysoprase, which was the favorite gemstone of Alexander the Great, has properties which include clarifying problems, easing restlessness, and encouraging love and joy. Its soft, green color is said to stimulate the heart chakra.
Hematite comes from the Greek word for "blood". It is famous for being an amulet in ancient civilizations for preventing excessive bleeding, but it was also known for improving relationships.
One of the most interesting birthstones for December is Bloodstone, and also goes by the name Heliotrope. There is a legend that says the Bloodstone was formed from the blood of Christ dripping on the green earth while He hung on the cross. In its sacredness, it solidified into the beautiful stone we admire today to be preserved forever in remembrance. The Greeks thought Bloodstone had the power to bring transformation and was often used as an amulet to protect against evil eye. Today, it is believed to help with the flow of blood and energy in the body, and is also the symbol of justice in some cultures.
