A Letter With a Symbolism

For me creating with flowers is my best meditation. And I always search to bring emotion into my design. This Chrysanthemum, the Pina Colada Yellow of Zentoo ( a quality brand for unique Chrysanthemums) is a full-bodied warm flower, and I wanted to emphasize that. One stem has 8 to 10 flowers. Awesome. By creating the letter in this shiny yellow I tried to create a feeling of bright and sparkling love. Where it all began.   The Arabic Letter Waw Written in Pina Colada - Blog on Thursd (1)   Design Japanese Garden 5 Haiku in bloom by Tuba Belgin Oskan - flowers Just Chrys - Blog on Thursd

Life is a Journey

I believe life is a journey to our better self. This journey is called growth, and as years go by, most people have some kind of strength, awareness, and wisdom through this journey. As one of the fastest-growing plants, bamboo, which symbolizes strength and wisdom, our personal growth can be quite remarkable when we look back at what or where we used to be.  

The Symbolization of Innocence and Pure Love

According to Sufism* the letter WAW, (Arabic letter) that has been placed on the hay, resembles the fetus growing in the womb, and it symbolizes innocence and pure love. Therefore it was the perfect form of this letter for me. And those Pina Coladas from  Dümmen Orange, the breeder of these magnificent flowers are jumping out of and forming WAW.  Dümmen Orange likes to choose sturdy names and with Pina Colada, they speak to our imagination. Dümmen Orange represents a legacy of floricultural excellence for more than a century in the making, providing the largest selection of superior flowers and plants on earth.   The Arabic Letter Waw Written in Pina Colada - Blog on Thursd     (*Sufism is a mystical Islamic belief and a practice in which Muslims seek to find the truth of divine love and knowledge through the direct personal experience of God)
