BEFORE AND AFTER – A NEW DESIGN!

BEE Still My BEEating HeartA perfect mandala chakra combination! Both the bee and the bleeding heart flower represent love. I have been trying to get the perfect shot of the many bees that frequent my bleeding heart flowers and I finally accomplished that goal! These bees are so large I am surprised the delicate bleeding hearts do not fall of the stem! LOL

Bee Meaning and Symbolism – Many cultures honor the bee and it is noted in many ancient cultures and mythologies. My favorite of course is the ancient Greek Goddess of Bees, Melissa. Melissa means honeybee in Greek and she also cared for the infant Zeus. She was turned into a beautiful bee by Zeus.

In ancient Egypt bees were a symbol of royalty and supremacy.
The Chinese consider designs of a bee sitting on a flower to represent courtship, marriage and love. They also these design to represent a maiden’s purity and fertility due to the bee’s pollination ability. The Chinese culture also considers the bee to represent cheerfulness, fortuity, affluence and harmony.

The overall symbolism of bees include: Love, Life, Order, Development, Knowledge, Beauty, Family, Happiness, Mystery, Sweetness, Nurturing, Community, Efficiency and Communication.

Bleeding Heart flower symbolism and Chakra meaning: The Heart Chakra is associated with the color green and the bleeding heart flower. If this chakra is unbalanced you demonstrate co-dependency and neediness. You feel deserted and unloved.

The bleeding heart flower and the color green relate to love and the ability to give and receive unconditionally. When your heart chakra is balanced, you offer love freely learning to nurture yourself and others. You feel at ease and experience soothing thoughts and feelings.

The flower symbolism of the Bleeding Heart is undying love, grace and fidelity. The essence of the bleeding heart flower is said to open up and strengthen the heart chakra, which in turn causes a person to feel emotionally soothed and open to the possibility of a new romance. It is thought to be especially useful after a heartbreak. These blossoms are also frequently used in love spells. Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

Precise Practicality


Mellow Monday – May you have a peaceful Monday!

Precise PracticalityThis is a bouquet of Lantana, Nemesia
and the wildflower “butter and eggs” (looks like baby snapdragons). Lantana
symbolizes rigor and precision, Nemesia is Greek for “she who administers
justice”. The green comes from a ground cover plant called the purple
archangel.

Psychedelic Saturday!

This is a bouquet of purple daisies, lilacs, and pansies.
Purple is the most powerful visible wavelength of electromagnetic energy. It’s just a few steps away from x-rays and gamma rays. Perhaps this explains why purple is associated with supernatural energy and the cosmos than with the physical world as we know it. Purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love. The flower symbolism associated with the daisy is purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity. Pansies symbolize thoughtfulness, remembrance and love.

Before and After – A NEW DESIGN!

Genuine GleeThis design is of a Gerbera daisy, fern and on the outer edge a tulip.

The daisy represents purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity and new beginnings. The Gerbera daisy, the fifth most popular flower in the world, has the added symbolism of cheerfulness!

The Gerbera daisy is the fifth most popular flower in the world
The word daisy comes from the Old English word dægeseage, meaning "day's eye". The daisy was thusly named because at night the petals close over the yellow center and during the day they re-open or “awaken”. This is how the fun saying “as fresh as a daisy” was created; it infers that someone had a restful sleep.

There is a Celtic Legend about the death of an infant. God sprinkled daisies all over the world when an infant passed to ease the parents suffering and to cheer them up.
The daisy is the sacred flower of the Norse Goddess of love, beauty and fertility, Freya. The daisy embodies childbirth, motherhood and new beginnings.

The daisy is actually two flowers in one, called a composite flower. The yellow center is called the disc floret and the outer petals are the ray floret. Because they are actually two flower in one, blending it such beautiful harmony the also symbolize true love!

Ferns symbolize sincerity towards others. It can also be a symbol of magic, fascination, confidence, shelter, discretion, reverie and a secret bond of love. Ferns are prehistoric living before the age of the dinosaurs!

Exuberant Reminiscence

Meditative Monday!

Exuberant Reminiscence - The flower symbolism associated with the pansy is merriment and you occupy my thoughts. The pansy is also considered a flower of remembrance, togetherness and union. Pansies help evoke fond memories of our loved ones. It is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear. The delphinium represents an open heart, a passionate attraction and cheerfulness. The flower symbolism associated with the fuchsia is confiding love.

BEFORE AND AFTER – A NEW DESIGN!

Soulful Grandeur - This is a Red Lacewing butterfly. If a butterfly crosses your path it means good luck. If a butterfly lands on you good fortune is coming your way! The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is "hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul". Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection, Transition, Celebration, Lightness, Time and Soul. Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.
