Not a Tulip?


You are an Iris:

You are logical, analytical, dignified, and wise.
You are studious by nature and may prefer books to people. You tend to be a serious person but are capable of making others laugh with your dry sense of humor. Friends always benefit from your advice.

Symbolism: Over the centuries the iris has come to symbolize faith, wisdom, hope, and promise in love.

Well, you may not be a tulip, Tulipgirl, but the iris is a lovely flower and the attributes associated with it are both winsome, and in your case, very true.

I was an Iris, too... The illustration, BTW, is by an Eastern European, Alphonse Mucha (can't do the diacritical marks, unfortunately!)--one of my favorite illustrators.

CEP, we love Mucha, too! We had to renew our visas in Nov '04, and so got to travel to Prague. We went to the Mucha museum. Definitely made an impression.

Reminds me of the poster I had on the wall of the flat I lived in in hippie/Uni days. I was into Mucha & the Pre-Raphaelites until I met hubby who introduced me to 17th Dutch which is now my fave period of Art History. We saw the Dutch Masters in Amsterdam after we married then they were here in Oz recently.

Thought it was fun! I was NOT an Iris... no surprise here. I was a Carnation:

You are friendly, energetic, cheerful, and bubbly. You love being around people. Outgoing and talkative, you rarely meet a stranger. Others feel at ease around you because of your playful nature.

Symbolism: In Victorian times carnations were given to show fascination with another. They also symbolize friendship and whimsicalness.

Sounds like me, eh?

Well, carnation crossbred with iris, to account for your strong academic leanings. *grin*

Hey--are you sending out email updates and are things progressing towards Chile? If so, please, please include me.

I took this flower one, and I was a lily. Cute test!

I have a friend who's writing a book on breastfeeding. She's collecting anecdotes from real moms -- would you mind if I passed along your site?
