At Floom, we’re generally of the opinion that the natural beauty and wonder of flowers are more than enough for us to enjoy. Every once in a while however, we like to indulge in a little of the superstitions that have clung resolutely to the flower world since the dawn of time (well, the Ancient Greeks at least).
Another world that is full of superstitions is of course the sporting world. With Wimbledon just around the corner, we thought we’d take a look at the ‘birth flowers’ for some of the biggest names taking to the grass this summer. Birth flowers can be traced back to Roman times and differ depending on what month you were born. Supposedly the flowers possess characteristics that are reflected in the characteristic of the person (think floral horoscopes).
Are the players’ birth flower qualities reflected in their personalities and playing styles? We’ll let you be the judges of that…
