Happy Friendship Day!
Photo credit: Baltimore Sun/Amy DavisThe first Sunday of August is Friendship Day, an occasion that began in 1935. It is celebrated in a number of countries with the exchange of gifts - often flowers.
The official flower for Friendship Day, Danielle Ernest of Proven Winners tells us, is the yellow rose, a symbol of joy, friendship, delight and the promise of new beginnings. Other "friendship flowers" are the wallflower, periwinkle and geranium.
