Simple Beauty

A single, simply perfect, calla lily. It’s very name means beauty and it symbolizes such things as purity, innocence, rebirth and resurrection. In folklore, it was thought to have the body of a woman and so it became popular as a flower in a bridal bouquet.

I think of the calla lily as a flower that represents the feeling of sympathy. To me, it represents the beauty of life. It reminds us to celebrate the life of a loved one that has passed, rather than dwell on the huge sense of loss that grief brings. I think this flower shows us that they live on forever in our memories, our hearts and our photographs.
