August by escume August by escume
So, here we go, August. I might paint other months if I can keep up!

Though originally called Sextilis because it’s position in the Roman calender as the sixth month, it’s now the eighth. It was renamed in honor of Augustus who chose the month because he apparently had some cool victories during that time.

August is not too heavy on symbolism though it’s birthstone the peridot, which is a pretty olive green color. It’s birth flowers are the poppy or gladiolus, the later which symbolizes strength of character. The hottest days of the year often fall in August (though not for me, it’s foggy year round where I live)

Any August birthdays? A few traits for august include a sense of humor, attractive, brave, proud, emotional, and generous :)

Late August - the traits described sounds about right for me since I have both Leo-Virgo traits!
