The ‘White Calla Lilly’ is a symbol of elegance and sophistication, that’s why it’s used so often for weddings as it stands for purity of thought and the eloquence of heavenly bliss. This particular flower is also used for Easter as the cone like shape symbolizes trumpets heralding victory and Christ’s passion on the cross. Calla Lilies are strong symbols of rebirth at spring, youth and innocence.
This particular flower has special meaning to me as it was one that I could find growing in my backyard each spring and when I was out playing I would pretend that I was a princess and that these flowers were given to me by my handsome prince. They didn’t have an over powering scent and so they were easy for me to be around, along with some were pink, blue, yellow and also white and those were all colors a little princess would love to receive.
My husband gives me these type flowers on our wedding anniversary and I love them because they are leaves that turn into flowers. The leaves start out a bold green color and over time develop spots where the color begins to change as the leaf curls around to begin forming the shape of the flower. To me it’s just beauty that you can watch, similar to a caterpillar changing into a beautiful butterfly.
I had photographed these flowers for many years and finally I was able to capture a white one in a way that I loved. To me it looks sophisticated, elegant, a reminder of faith and love. I hope you will enjoy it too.
“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin; even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” – Matthew 6:28-29 (NKJV)
