January: features a cat and carnation flowers, and the poem,

A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood-red orange, sets again.

- by Robert Louis Stevenson



February: features garden seeds and wild violet flowers, and the poem,

“Love is a flower that grows in any soil,
works its sweet miracles undaunted by
autumn frost or winter snow,
blooming fair and fragrant all the year,
and blessing those who give and those who receive.”
 
- by Louisa May Alcott


March: features bluebirds and daffodil flowers, and the poem,

"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils."
 
- by William Wordsworth

 
April: features bunny rabbits and sweet pea flowers, and the quote,

"What is it like?"
"It is the sun shining on the rain
and the rain falling on the sunshine.”

May: features hummingbirds and lily of the valley flowers, and the poem,

“How does the Meadow flower its bloom unfold?
Because the lovely little flower is free down to its root,
And in that freedom bold."

Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie⁠⠀
True Poems flee.”⁠⠀
 
⁠- by Emily Dickinson

And waltzed above a Farm
Then stepped straight through the Firmament
And rested on a Beam
And then—together bore away
Upon a shining Sea."

"Poppies on the river-bluff
Soon will wake from sleeping;
Home along the foothills
Woolly clouds a-creeping."

The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town."

October: features a fox and marigold flowers, and the poem,

Touch of manner, hint of mood;
And my heart is like a rhyme,
With the yellow and the purple and the crimson keeping time."

parting birds, and passionate wind-songs in the pines.”

as they approached it on soft feet over a first thin fall of powdery snow.
