Are You Blue Too?

You Are a Blue Flower

A blue flower tends to represent peace, openness, and balance.
At times, you are very delicate like a cornflower.
And at other times, you are wise like an iris.
And more than you wish, you're a little cold, like a blue hydrangea.

I took this quiz the other day and decided then not to post the results because I wasn't sure how I felt about being a blue flower. It sounded so...melancholy.

Then today I had an email from my oldest sis, who's getting married in just a couple of weeks. She was asking my advice on flowers to go with her light blue dress. I got to thinking about flowers...including all the bluish flowers I love (especially delphiniums and irises) and then I spent a while online looking up more blue flowers, and you know what? There are some lovely ones. Cornflowers, for instance. And phlox, and bluish (well, lavender at any rate) roses. Put any of these together with some creamy whites or blush pinks, and you've got a beautiful bouquet...

I even like hydrangeas. Yes, I do! I don't think they're cold at all, although they do bloom in "snowball" kinds of clumps.

Turns out I don't mind being a little blue after all. Are you blue too?

Apparently I'm purple:
"A purple flower tends to represent success, grace, and elegance.
At times, you are faithful like a violet.
And other times, you represent luxury, like a wisteria.
And more than you wish, you find yourself heartbroken like a lilac."

I am a big fan of blue myself. It's my favorite color, and it's the color of my favorite flowers, forget-me-nots. They're so pretty!

Ah, forget-me-nots. Yet another blue flower I hadn't thought of! Hmm...I'm enjoying the blue flower designation more and more. My favorite color overall is green -- but that doesn't quite work for flowers, except in the sense that all flowers have some green somewhere!

Next to green, purple is probably my favorite color, so I liked reading over your quiz results. They seem appropriate! Though would you consider yourself easily heartbroken? I certainly didn't consider myself "cold" although at times my shyness and reserve may come across that way to some people, I guess (hope not!).

I definitely don't think you're cold! :) As for "heartbroken," I think that's too strong a word, though I do have a melancholy streak... Probably more accurate, though, than representing luxury!
