Meanings of Flowers - Amaryllis & Calla Lily

.... Beauty in the eyes of the Beholder ....
I have always enjoyed flowers especially more now since I started to dabble into flower arrangement and experimenting with all the different media be it fresh flowers, artificial & silk flowers, flowers for the bride, flowers for wedding gifts and looking forward to more things to do with flowers.

One can express a wide range of emotions and feelings through flowers. I want to share brief notes on the flowers (the flower arrangements shown above).

Amaryllis ,also called 'Amaryllis Belladonna Lily', is an attractive showy flower and it expresses -"splendid beauty/pride" . The color 'pink'  reflects soothing feeling and relaxes/relieves tension.

The Amaryllis flower stem is straight and tall. The stem bears 2-5 large flowers at the top, with six brightly coloured tepals (three outer sepals, three inner petals, with similar appearance to each other). A stunning amaryllis flower with dark red markings, or different colors appear on the stalks. Thus making this choice of Amaryllis a beauty as my 'Topiary' design.

Calla Lily signifies "magnificence and beauty" and popular as wedding bouquets. Calla lilies also a symbol of elegance and sophistication thus making Calla lilies arrangement makes an elegant display on the coffee table/mantlepiece or any corner of your home. Its timeless beauty and wide range of colors making it a special flower to enjoy and a  good choice for weddings.

Calla lily  bloom is trumpet like and  its leaves are shaped like arrowheads. Its simple beauty and innate grace is magnified in my  "Swirly Calla"  design.
