January is named after Janus, the Roman god who presided over doorways and new beginnings. The Snowdrop, a symbol of hope & consolation, is a birthday flower of this month. The green markings on its inner petals are said to be the promise that summer will return. #FolkloreSunday (via @VenetiaJane@twitter)
