    My soul flower is the Jacqueminot Rose. It was the flower of the sorority I belonged to in college, and am still friends with all the girls that I went to college with – 10 years later. They are my extended family, and parts of my soul were shaped in some way by each of their individual ones. My sisters for life!

    Mine’s the Sunflower. I love sunflowers because they always seem so bubbly and because they always grow in the direction of the sun, it reminds me of hope. That even in the darkest and hardest times, there’ll always be another sunrise and a sunflower to greet it. I have a charm that I made myself that’s a sunflower, it’s helped me through times that I’ve thought were impossible to get through.

    My soul flower would have to be a daisy. Every time I see one I can’t help but smile and think of sunshine, beautiful blue skies, and green, green grass. This image speaks to my soul as this is my idea of heaven.

    Marigolds are my soulflower because they remind me of my mother. She always loved to plant them because of their strength, beauty, and their ability to survive harsh conditions. My mother had those same traits through her long and painful battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis before dying 15 years ago. She taught me about strength and resiliency.

    My soul flower is the Moonflower…
    It has always been special to me… maybe because it blooms at an odd time (in the evening), maybe because it’s heavenly fragrant, maybe because it’s vines grow up and around, maybe it’s because it’s a simple flower – mostly it’s because it’s unique….
    … I plant them every year in along the fence to my front door.

    My soul flower is the peoni. They are even more beautiful than the rose. When they’re in bloom, which isn’t long enough for me, it warms my heart. When my teenagers were babies (in the home that I gave birth to my identical twin boys), our backyard was filled with peonies. I would love to get all those blooms back!

    My soul flower is the Tulip. Tulips bloom early which reminds me that spring is here and everything is coming back to life, color is coming back to earth. Tulips are solid and strong and yet look fragile and beautiful. Tulips come in many colors, but bring them all together and their different colors make them even more beautiful.

    My flower of my soul is the lotus. When I was younger I was told that I would NEVER have children. Well with a bit of faith and patience I now have 2 beautiful daughters 3 (Casey) and 1 (Maggie).
    The lotus represents a person’s spiritual journey into enlightenment. A lotus flower has to grow though the mud and dark water to reach the surface. Where I was in my life (the dark muddy part), I am now in a peacefull spritual place with my new family!

    My soul flower is a lotus flower. I think they’re beautiful to look at and have a very peaceful essence about them. A great and unique thing about them is that they don’t grow where most flowers do. Lotus flowers start to grow in the mud at the bottom of a pond. As it grows, it gradually gets closer and closer to reaching the surface of the water, moving towards the light. Once it reaches the surface, the lotus flower begins to blossom into a beautiful flower. I think that the growth of this flower symbolises a very spiritual journey.

    My soul flower is the Cherry Blossom. When I was a little girl we lived with my Mom-mom. My Pop-pop had bought her a Japanese cherry tree one year for their wedding anniversary, before I was born. We would sit under that tree looking up through the blossoms, branches and fruit. We indulged on those sweet little fruits, made garlands of the blossoms as they fell. When Mom-mom passed in 2004 my husband and I were married the year after. We tied the knot on her birthday and on our honeymoon I tattoed her blossom on the back of my shoulder, now those blossoms are always in season.

    The hibiscus is my flower, I have it tattooed close to my heart. I am part Hawaiian, so it is part of my heritage, the native flower of Hawaii, the most beautiful place I’ve been to on this earth. Hibiscus are brightly colored, and I feel like I am a bright color all the time. It’s me in so many ways. They do well in warm weather and I feel like my heart thrives on the warmness of others. They are beautiful and remind me that we are all beautiful, in our own way.

    The Sunflower is my Soul Flower! It reminds me of my friend Jennie. She was killed in a car accident 7 years ago. The sunflower was her trade mark when she was alive and has continued to be sported by those in our community since she has passed. When Jennie graduated her family bought her a car, and her 2 aunts put a huge sunflower on the antenna! She was told that they would help out with payments if she kept the sunflower on the antenna! Now Jennie was a tomboy and a flower was the last thing she wanted on her car especially one you could see coming from a mile away! But she kept it and it became famous! You always knew where Jennie was. And when she passed, there wasn’t anything more appropriate to hand out at her funeral (which was held in an overflowing gymnasium since she touched the lives of so many) than sunflowers! Everyone put them on their car antennas or the back window of their cars in rememberance of Jennie. Jennie had a love for life that you could sense when she walked into a room. She was definitely a personality plus, the class clown, and someone you just wanted to be friends with. Whenever I see a sunflower, I think of Jennie. It’s bitter sweet. I love and miss you Jen!

    Mine would be Lilac’s. They are also my mother’s favorite flower. I remember the first time we picked them together. My mom got so much joy from them, and I wanted to share that feeling. As she had me smell them she talked about how they have a calm & soothing scent. She described picking them with her mother when she was a child. To this day my mom still has a huge smile at the sight of the flowers, and as much as we love the flowers themselves… I think it is also the memories that bring such joy. They are not only beautiful flowers, but they help connect the souls of 3 generations. I hope to pass that on one day to my daughter.

    My great-grandmother lived in an old wooden house two doors down from my own home when growing up. Amongst the cactus and tumbleweeds and blowing sand, my great gram had a 6′ by 10′ garden that was filled with Iris’ of many colors. It was an oasis for that southern colorado country. Her first Iris was a gift from my grandfather when he moved her there and she tended, watered and cherished them for over 50 years. After they both died and I moved away, no one cared about that Iris garden any more and they died. In memoriam I have a lovely Iris tattoo’d on my side. A lovely soul-flower to remember by.

    My all time favorite flower, and what I truly believe to be my soul flower, is the daffodil. One of the first to bloom each spring, their vibrant, beautiful color reminds me of new beginnings…something I believe we should each start the fresh day with. They are also a symbol of rebirth. When I was pregnant with my first child, my daughter (my beautiful daffodil), I ordered a Blue Bubble Gum Jones Soda at a local restaurant. The waitress brought it to me and told me I was lucky, it was their last of that kind. I opened it up, and read the cap. It clearly stated: When the daffodils bloom in the spring, so will great joy in your life. My due date was June 4, 2004. She truly is a joy in my life, as are the fresh blooming daffodils in the early spring, when I am most at peace.

    My soul flower is the orchid. I love the way that they only bloom for a short period of time, and then are gone. It is a reminder to stop at look at the beauties of nature, while they are still around.

    My soulflower is a Liliac. Growing up, my Mom used to cut them from her garden, place them in a vase and stick them in my room before I woke up. Sometimes I am sad during the winter when it is cold and dreary and so when I see/smell liliacs, it reminds me that sunny, warm days are on their way! I was born in April and that is normally when liliacs bloom and so I feel reborn every time I see the little buds growing!

    My Soulflower is the sunflower, but mainly the Helianthus Annuus sunflower that blooms a deep red sunflower and is absolutely beautiful. I love sunflowers, I started planting them last year, but my pet bunny, freddy, ate them. This year however, they are growing in my vegetable garden and are doing great. I love the passionate colors that sunflowers have. It is now a thing where my family always gives me things with sunflowers on them, like coffee cups and pins and things. I just love them.

    My soul-flowers are my two daughters, Brittney and Danielle. I have watched them grow and blossom into beautiful, wise and caring young women (they are 21 and 18 now).
    My daughters fill my soul with love, make me proud and remind me of what a precious gift the Lord has given me!!

    My soul flower is the plumeria. I love the laid back state of mind in Hawaii and the beautiful memories I have are filled with the scent of plumerias. It also gives me hope and incentive to keep working hard so I can go to Hawaii for school to become a marine biologist! xlaurennunezx@aol.com

    Daisy! I LOVE daisies. They are so plentiful right now. Some call it a weed, but when I see a daisy all I can do is smile. They were the flower for my wedding day, almost ten years ago. They bring sunshine to dreary days. I see them in hair, on clothes, sprinkled along the highway. Oh they are just a marvelous flower! They speak to me because I want to do what they do: brighten the world around me. I only hope I am succeeding.

    I’m not sure what they are called but there is usually a mix from light to dark purple in every bunch. They grow in hilly spots and along country roads here in southeast minnesota. They bloom in late May when the weather is just getting really nice and you can smell their beautiful fragrance from your car when you drive by. I feel like I bloom in late may when the weather turns nice, too!

    The Story of the Two Pats – both my soul-flowers – By Sarah Guenther
    warrenandsarahg@yahoo.com

    One spring, about 11 years ago, my mother-n-law came to visit. The next day we left her to her vices and she decided to walk down to the farmer’s market near our apartment. When she returned, she had with her a small plant with the most delicate purple bloom. It was a dwarf lilac bush. She handed it to me and told me it was for our community garden plot on campus. I was overjoyed! You have no idea, but I am a lilac freakazoid – it’s my ultimate soul-flower. I’m one of those people, who may just happen to clip a twig of one of your blooming lilac bushes in the middle of the night. I’m also one of these people that will stop the car and get out just to smell a ripening tree of lilac blossoms. I”m insane about it. Every spring, just before the lilacs bloom, I get this insatiable need to smell them.

    We planted the lilac bush in our plot and promptly named it Pat, in honor of my husband’s mother. Every time she came to visit, we strolled down to the garden to look at Pat.

    Two years later, we moved. We dug up our plot, including Pat, and transplanted her into a gorgeous new pot and brought her to our new digs. There she lived on our back porch. She bloomed just a bit later than all the other lilacs, which was very special to me given it just draws out the lilac season. Just as the fragrance of the lilac blooms were waning around us, Pat would begin to bloom. We always made sure she was never alone. She had many potted plants surrounding her to keep her company and we took great care to make sure that she flourished. We always sent pictures to Pat every spring as she displayed her purple grandeur.

    Then three years later, Pat moved with us again, three more times. I had always promised her that one day, we would own the land where we resided and that she would have her very own plot of earth to put down her roots for good. Then we bought our first house. Warren and I both immediately thought of Pat. She would have her wish. When we got our keys, the first thing we did was to bring Pat over to see where she would forever reside. She liked the SW corner of the front yard the best. Probably because that is where most people would see her annual lavish display of purple blooms. Well Pat proved to be right. Her roots had been contained for way too long. We had to crack the pot open just to release her. We dug a big hole and placed her in it with lots of love.

    She’s been in that same spot now for almost four years now. She loves it. She’s grown another foot and gets more blooms each spring. She’s been through a lot, being moved around, root bound, and finally transplanted. I was looking up information about these small lilacs and the first thing that was mentioned is they are the much hardier and more durable than most lilacs. You’ve got to be kidding me. I wonder if my mother-n-law knew that she was picking out a plant for us with the same qualities she herself has. Pat, the person, moved around a lot as a child. She had a bit of a tough upbringing, although she does have some fond memories. As she was retiring and getting ready for her golden years, she was confronted with the biggest fight of her life – breast cancer. Of course, she made it through, Pat can make it through anything. She’s as tough as the bat that hits the ball out of the park but she has a bigger heart than you’ll ever see. Now she’s enjoying her retirement to the fullest.

    So I think it’s a bit interesting that she bought us this soul-flower plant, never knowing what kind of journey it would take with us or how much it resembles her life and her stubborn will to survive. So this year, even as the rains refuse to let way to sun, Pat, the plant, is preparing to bloom once again. And, even as the journey of life has had it’s twists and turns, Pat, the person, is still flourishing and infecting people with her tenacity for life.
    And that my friend, is the Story of the Two Pats.

    I know it’s a “weed” but if I had to pick one soulflower I think it would hafta be the humble dandelion. It’s one of the first flowers to pop it’s yellow shaggy head up out of the ground and mirror the sun for us in miniature. It’s tenacious, earthy and one of the most nourishing backyard herbs out there. And on top of all that, it doesn’t care if you don’t like it – it’s got soulshine that just won’t go away! I might be more like a shy violet in personality, but a dandelion is what I aspire to be! πŸ˜‰ – josvacation@yahoo.com

    My “SoulFlower” is the Buttercup.

    The beautiful waxy yellow petals shine as they catch the sun’s golden rays. The Sun is my life’s breath and this flower catches it’s rays very nicely πŸ˜‰ The Buttercup blossoms tell me Spring is truly here and I can finally be free of the cold doldrums of winter!

    My daughter brings me handfuls of bouquets of them as we do not treat our lawn with chemicals so we get them in our grass by the basketful.

    It is her job before we mow to grab her basket and “save the buttercups!” This is a family tradition we have started since she was able to walk.
    Here is a bouquet from this year:

    My soul flower is this deep purple iris that grows in my garden every spring. It was planted by the previous owners of the house and it blooms later in the spring, so I forget about it until I see this beautiful purple flower that is also so different looking from all the others. It reminds me of all the things I should take notice around me that sometimes I might forget, or take for granted.

    My soul flower is Daphne. I have one outside of my bedroom window, and when it flowers in springtime the fragrance comes in through the window and brightens up my day, reminding me summer is just around the corner. It’s special to me because my mother planted it there for me, just as her mother planted one for her outside her bedroom window when she was young. They are beautiful flowers which I love to wear in my hair! ♥

    Without a doubt, the lilac is my soul-flower. No matter where my travels may take me, the minute the scent of the lilac crosses my path, I’m taken back to the sunny spring days that seemed endless, where the trees, creeks and fields were playgrounds for my imagination. I was home this spring for the bloom, as the lilac bush flowered it’s small purple clusters in the front yard, I smiled inside and out. I passed them daily, stopping to inhale the scent I long for, that instills a peace in my soul and a pleasure in heart. Some of life’s greatest joys are of the simplest nature. Lilacs are my the flower of my soul.

    Last October my grandmother was tradgically killed in a car accident. She was an antique dealer, and an avid gardener. This Spring all of her flowers came up in her yard even though she was no longer here with us. Her yard looked beautiful and there were flowers we never saw before coming up. My soul flower would be a big ol’ Snow ball bush, because my grandma’s came back bigger and better then ever this year and everytime i see one it reminds me of her, and all the memories i had with her in her garden.

    There’s so many to choose from but my soul flower would definitely have to be the daisy. It has always been my favorite flower but took on a whole new meaning when I met my husband ten years ago. He was a soldier and deployed often for different bit’s of time. But each time he would go he would send me daisies with a special note tucked in. I loved opening the door and seeing those bright little flowers…it always made me smile during a time where it seemed impossible to do so.

I also admire them because although they would be one of the last flowers I would expect to grow in many places, but just yesterday I saw a single, six foot tall sunflower growing voluntarily along the side of the road next to a business park. Even when everything else seems to be going to pot, a Sunflower can grow in the most industrialized, least hospitable environment to plants. Amazing πŸ™‚

    My soul flower is the daffodil. It’s weird–I’m not a fan of the color yellow, but yellow daffodils just fill me with the feeling that everything’s simple and pure and all right.

    My soul flower is the purple bearded iris. My grandmother always had the most beautiful flower beds and was so proud of the many different colors of bearded irises that she had accumulated over the years. Her favorite was the purple though. Every spring/summer when my irises start to bloom I smile and think of her. All the irises I have were hers. πŸ˜€

    My heart and soul are in all the wildflowers of Texas. We have so many that during the spring the highways and byways are not mowed until bluebonnet season is over.

    The bluebonnet is our state flower. Yet, we have indian paint brushes, butter cups, marigolds, dandylions,lantana, and others that fill a glorious landscape planted by nature. We Texans revel in them.

    Remember Texas is another Country!

    Anyway, Texas wildflowers are my soulflower; forever.

    My soul-flower is canabis ! Canabis is not only a beautiful flower that has many verietys of color , smells ,& taste;),but it’s used in many different useful ways ,coutless medical uses , it can be turned into oils with countless unknown uses. Can b turned into one of the strongest threads and efficient clothing. Making this beautiful flower legal to grow and sell through taxed supervision could quite possibly save the U.S. From slipping further into this reccession. No other flower in the world has the potential power to be used in so many ways, cure so many ailments, or more beautiful.
    And it’s biodegradable!

    My soul flower is the orchid. They’re gentle and beautiful, and remind me of the important women in my life. I plan on getting a tattoo of an orchid in honor of them. My grandmothers, my mother, and my sisters. They’re like individual flowers on the orchid, all connected together in their beauty.

    Lantana of course. It’s hardy, self-sufficient and can take a lickin’ from our unpredictable Texas weather. It’s the only flower I can grow successfully without killing and grows back stronger each year. The lantana and I share many of the same attributes – hence my fondness for it.

    My Soulflower is definitely Lilacs. We used to have one next to our house where I grew up and I couldn’t wait for it to bloom. It smelled wonderful and it was sooo pretty. Lilacs remind me of a simpler time. When we moved out of that house the new owner cut it down, so it was an end of not only the Lilac bush, but my childhood also.

    My soul flower would have to be a bouquet. One for each of my children. When I look at a sunflower it reminds me of my son Lucas, bright, creative and full of smiles. The pink rose is my first twin Michaela with a soft heart and always wants to be in my arms. Siobhan, Michaela’s twin is a definite buttercup. Siobhan is peaceful and quite but vibrant.

But that does not matter to us, our dog Cosmo is so handsome, charismatic and a real hoot – literally, he howls like no other!

Their big and yellow and they always feel me with such happiness. They also remind me that life is a series of passing moments and nothing more. You should enjoy each one of these moments to the fullest every single day and regret nothing, because you honestly never know how quickly those moments can just pass you by. Just like you honestly never know how quickly the spring will come and go before it gives away to the winter.

    My soul flower is the daylily. It only lasts a day, but grows into a bigger plant each year. The flower colors are endless, but the plants all look alike. Only the plant is visible during the winter, but every summer the blooms are constantly emerging. It’s like life-changing, but sometimes staying the same. And sometimes you get surprises, like a double bloom or a new color.

    Sunflowers are my soulflower. Ever since I was little I loved Sunflowers- mainly because my mama loved them. She had a garden in our backyard and there were a bunch of sunflowers and I used to run and hide in them and wait for my mama to find me. She taught me about gardening and I remember thinking how cool it was that they grow to face the sun. My mama still calls me her sunshine child, even though I’m all grown up and have a child of my own, because of our days playing in the garden. I can’t wait until I can buy a house of my own with a yard, because I will also have a sunflower patch and teach my children about sunflowers! πŸ™‚

    The Lotus Flower.
    The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.

    Though there are other water plants that bloom above the water, it is only the lotus which, owing to the strength of its stem, regularly rises eight to twelve inches above the surface.

    In esoteric Buddhism, the heart of the beings is like an unopened lotus: when the virtues of the Buddha develop therein, the lotus blossoms; that is why the Buddha sits on a lotus bloom.”

    when the water falls again onto the lotus leaf below, there again it wells up and rolls right on off again, emptying into the lotus pond. Observing this spectacle with no-mind, I thought, “The lotus petal takes on only as much weight as it can hold; anything more and it empties everything out completely!” I have been completely struck by such wisdom. Were the lotus to instead take the water greedily, the petal would end up tearing or its stem would snap. The principles for living in the world are exactly the same.
