The Wonder Of Wildflowers: 11 Wildflowers And What They Symbolise

Updated: Aug 31, 2023

Wildflowers have been a big source of inspiration for me lately. Fresh art and poetry is coming very soon...

Wildflowers are inspiring me in many different ways at the moment. Some, incredibly delicate and some, incredibly strong. Yet all incredibly beautiful in their own unique way. I admire how wildflowers grow freely in the wild, without any help from people. They adapt in order to grow and survive.

Have you ever wondered about wildflowers and what they symbolise? If you're anything like me, I love learning about symbolism and the meanings and stories behind the names of things. Usually, I'm drawn to learning about flowers, animals and places. You've probably already guessed it, but my biggest source of inspiration is nature and being outdoors.

Recently, with the weather being so warm and sunny, I've been riding my bike down the countryside paths close to where I live. During these bike rides, I've come across so many beautiful wildflowers, welcoming the Spring and the Summer. I don't think I've ever noticed so many. Now, I see them absolutely everywhere.

With this in mind, I decided to write a little bit about wildflowers, in the hope that one day you stop and closely look at them too. When you see flowers growing naturally in the wild, you can't help but smile and feel an inner sense of happiness, peace and joy.
