:idea:
since srping is here let's pretend that AW is a garden. If you were a flower, what one would you be and what color? (and since Jenna keeps the weeds out no fair being one of those)

I was like to be a Yellow Rose.

I would like to be this Milk Thistle. Ok, it's not a flower, but it's pretty and it has barbs.

I can be mean, really, I can...Well, I can't, but sometimes I want to be!

Saritams8 would you like for me to give you my interpretation of your flower choice as it relates to you?

Sincerely,
Gehanna

Post edited to add:

The offer still stands but as for now, I am off to watch The Incredibles with my children. I do not know when I will be back to visit the forums however, should you decide you would like me to do this, please let me know if you would prefer I send it to you via. pm or if you would rather I post it here. If I post it in view of the public, I will not be as specific or blunt (whatever you want to call it) as I would be otherwise.

Many Regards,
Gehanna

Of Course!

Wow, it was great. I totally recommend it for everyone... if Gehanna has the time. There were some very poignant observations, right on really.

And I would tell you what they were, but then I'd have to kill you!

Since I love how they look, I would have to pick a peace rose.

OK. Hard times call for hard men.

I am willing to sacrifice myself for my fellow forum members.

(Brokenfingers takes a deep breath and closes his eyes...)

OK, go ahead and tell me......

A beautiful red poppy.

I do wish I had the time for more. All writing and no reading (so to speak) is causing more isolation from others than I care for.

As for my flower choice, I would have to say the Moonflower. The first time I saw one was last year. My mother had grown them in her backyard. When I saw them, I was captivated.

I would be an ordinary white and yellow field daisy,

because it's always the ones you least suspect.

I would be a thistle, too.

Rose Red
04-18-2005, 08:23 PM
I would be ...a red rose...but a thornless one. My favorite flower of all.

relates to me.

Hello wurdwise. :)

How would you describe the Honeysuckle to someone who had never seen or heard of one before?

Sincerely,
Gehanna

I would be a white daisy, or a Blue Girl (or) Sterling rose (both lavender-blue roses).

Mmmhh, let's see. I would say, "It's the smell. They're no really big deal to look at, not regal or beautiful, but the fragrance on a warm summer day is what I think hope might smell like, comforting, calming, and just a tad sweet."

Gehanna

What do you make of your description as it relates to you? ...

Are there any parallels you can discern?


Sincerely,
Gehanna

The Moonflower is beautiful! Years back, I bought this little pot that was dark blue with moons on it that come with Moonflower seeds from a little Wiccan shop. It's at night, and should be planted when the Moon is new rather than sunlight that made it grow. They open quickly in the evening and last through the night, remaining open until touched by the morning Sun. They have large 4 to 6 inch fragrant, white or pink flowers on twining vines. I was living in an apartment at the time and wasn't having much luck with them, so I planted some seeds in my mother's backyard and they were sprouting all over. They were gorgeous!

I just bought my house. I'm going to plant some Moonflower seeds and put some Rose bushes in my front yard.

Nice :)

When you said:

It reminded me of my evenings. Each night I go to sleep, my subconscious mind opens quickly and stays busy all night long! :o LOL

Gehanna, that is so cool. Yes, the description of the honeysuckle is close in many ways to the way I perceive myself!

Gehanna
04-19-2005, 04:35 PM
I have another question for you now wurdwise.

Was the Honeysuckle not in bloom 3 months ago?

Gehanna

wurdwise
04-19-2005, 04:59 PM
I don't know the answer, Gehanna. I haven't seen a honeysuckle in years because I don't go out much, but we had vines that grew along the fence when I was a kid. My memory tells me they bloom for a long time, a big chunk of the year?

Gehanna

I don't get out much either because I am living on a very tight budget right now. How come you don't you get out much?

I'd be an alstromeria. They come in lots of colors to match my moods and they are tough. They survive even if they get damaged.

My favorite flower is Cala Lily (wrong spelling I'm sure) - color white.

Fire Lily.

Redhead, freckled, not very well known, but I definitely stand out in a crowd.

A bright white Gerbera daisy. For many reasons...

I would be a big beautiful Oriental Lily. Bright, big, splashy, fabulously fragrant. Deep magenta in the center fading out to shocking white on the tips. Starting out life as a long, thin bud and then opening up to reveal six large petals reaching out in six different directions, stretching myself out and saying to the world "Look at me!" A wonderful tribute to that wonderful quote by Anais Nin "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Check them out on Martha's Flowers ...

I've always wanted the scent of our national flower, the sampaguita or jasmine....
