It's My Birth Month!

Yes, I'm a May child. My birthday was 10 days ago. Adding another year to my age and I'm ten days older by now! A sudden thought came to my mind that I should post something connected to my birthday. It's just at the right time before this month ends.

All this while, I only know my zodiac sign . I'm curious to know what are other things connected to the birth month of May.  First,  I surfed for the birth flower and got this answer :

Lily, Lily of the valley

Oh! that's cool. I must say that only now I know about it! I searched for more informations about this flower and this is what I got from

Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis) is a fragrant flowering plant used in religous ceremonies, world celebrations, perfumes and in gardens. Also known as the May lily, it means "return to happiness" and most often symbolizes chastity, purity, happiness, luck and humility.

This is how the flower looks like.

I'm happy to know what my birth flower is and as a Taurean my zodiac sign  is non other than a Bull!

Last but not least, my birthstone. It's emerald (though I don't have one!).

I don't have any special wish for this year.  But since I'm talking about flower, bull and emerald, I would simply say I hope my life is as fragrant as lily, energetic as a bull and my days  shiny (and bright) like  an emerald!
