February’s Flower is the Blue Violet

February’s Flower is the Blue Violet.  The blue violet stands for watchfulness and faithfulness.   According to Greek a legend, Zeus was in love with a beautiful nymph names Io. Naturally his wife, Hera, was not to pleased. So, to hide Io from her he changed her in to a white heifer. When Io ate the grasses she found them too coarse and bitter for her and she began to cry. Zeus changed her tears into violets that were tender and sweet enough for her to eat.
