The Beautiful Colors of Spring

While at the grocery store the other day, I was struck by the beautiful flowers, their color combinations and the varieties. I saw these sunflowers and had to snap a photo with my IPhone...not a bad picture. I was wondering what sunflowers represent so I checked online and found out that they symbolize loyalty and wishes. They are so cheerful and can turn a frown upside down in a heartbeat.

Then, I found these and thought of how nature, with the help of rain and sunshine, brings us the most simplest pleasures.

Hydrangeas are my favorites...and their symbolism is two fold.  On the positive side they express thank you and on the negative side they can signify frigidity and heartlessness.  I choose to think of them in their most favorable light and will use them right now to thank all of my faithful readers who take time out of their busy schedules to pay me a visit.  Your visits and comments mean the world to me.  So thank you!

What is your favorite flower?  Do you know what it symbolizes?

I've been busy sewing and adding new items to my Etsy shop lately so that explains my lack of posting as of late.

  1. Dear Kris,
    I love flowers in several variants. I am really fascinated by its beauty and colour time and time again. My first choice are mostly the pastell coloured flower, like the white or pale pink ranunculus, besides it I also love peonies, rose and actually many more as well, and of course hydrangeas. So it is mostly hard for me to decide which one I will take.
    Your new items are really beautiful. In order to produce them you certainly have had to do a lot of work. Worth admiring!
    Have a great time.
    Warm regards,

  2. Those flowers are gorgeous-I am a huge fan of hydrangeas. Your fabrics are lovely.

  3. Wonderful flowers - and I LOVE hydrangeas too! I´m fond of most flowers more or less, but I always have a soft spot for white tulips. No clue what they represent though. :-)

  4. Beautiful flowers, Kris. I'm a rose girl, and not just because it's part of my name. You have been busy. Great pieces for your Etsy.

  5. My favorite flower probably changes with the season, but mostly I'm with you... hydrangeas. I can't believe they represent frigidity! What a terrible thing!

  6. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Meine Dinge.' Your blog is so pretty, and I love all the pictures of the flowers. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty, and it is very cheerful to me. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. I'm off to look at your etsy shop right now.

  7. Heartlessness huh?!? haha I still like them though. I would say my favorite flower of all time is the calla lily...and also the peonies. Have no idea what they symbolize...maybe I will go over to google now :-) XoXo
