    Default Flowers, Gems, and Time

    All of the pictures seem to have the jewels in them, probably just to show us which gem is available at each site.

    However, each picture also seems to have a flower involved. Why? what does the flower have to do with it?

    There is also time references in many of the pictures, including clocks. Why? How does that help us sort the pictures?

    Can we tie together the verses with the images based on these elements?

    Each pic has a time, flower and jewel. They all give the Picture a # basically or month however you look at it. Notice that the jewel and flower are birth stones/flowers for the month that is depicted from the clock.

    I was wondering if the flower was maybe a state flower....

    Ok, here goes a crash course on these images.

    There are 3 things that each P has that leads us to a specific month.. (unfortunately, we are not quite sure what the month is used for).

    Each P includes:
    -birthstone (which appears to be the jewel rewarded for that P)
    -birth flower
    -some sort of numbering leading to the month (ie..clocks, counted items, etc..)

    therefor:

    January: P3 - garnet, carnation, 1 oclock
    February: P10 - amethyst, violet, 2 red balls juggled
    March: P4 - aquamarine, daffodil, 3 sides of triangle
    April: P2 - diamond, daisy, 4 oclock
    May: P5 - emerald, lilly of the valley, 5 warts on face
    June: P1 - pearl, rose, 6 oclock
    July: P8 - ruby, larkspur, 7 columns
    August: P11 - peridot, poppy, 8 ? (possible shape of globe + stand)
    Sept: P6 - blue star sapphire, aster, 9 aster flowers
    Oct: P9 - opal, calendula, 10 roman numeral 10 = X
    Nov: P12 - blue topaz, chrysanthemum, 11 oclock
    Dec: P7 - turquoise, narcissus, 12 oclock



    one idea for tying each P to a month would be in the linking of the P's with the V's however that has not come to fruition yet.

    .........time to add a DAR ring to my collection.........

    For your reference:

    There is no hard consensus on these. I used some web resources that seemed to be most consistent with others.

    I think that I have attached a PDF file of this that you can download.
