Letters to the flowers of my lives

Letters to the flowers of my lives

Dear yellow tulip,

Yellow tulips are bright, beaming flowers. They’ll always stand out in a flower field, and they’ll never be afraid to speak up. My specific yellow tulip never fails to add a smile to my day and is part of what has helped me persevere through the school year so far. Thank you, my bright yellow tulip, for being there for me, helping me make it through the day, and always putting a smile on my face.

Dear bluebell,

Bluebells are one of my favorite flowers. They may seem small, but they are incredibly strong. There are multiple different flowers as the stem grows taller, and they hang over, wilted slightly, showing how they aren’t actually perfect after all. I haven’t had it for a long time, but still, my bluebell is one of my favorite things in the world. My bluebell can help me through anything and is always there for me and will stand by me no matter what. Thank you, my bluebell, for being there for me and for always making me smile even when I’m in a bad mood.

Dear poppy, 

Poppies are a unique flower but are also very bright. My poppy is very unique and always puts a smile on my face. My poppy can always get me to laugh no matter what, and if I need something light-hearted, I can talk to my poppy. I’ve only had this poppy for a year, but I am so grateful and can’t wait for all of the years to come. Thank you, my unique poppy, for always making me laugh and for always being yourself.

Dear pink dahlia,

Dahlia’s are small but strong flowers. My dahlia is always there for me and isn’t scared to give me tough love. My dahlia is beautiful, strong, and deserves the whole world. My dahlia might blend into a flower field, but I can always find it no matter what. Thank you, my dahlia, for being something I can lean on and something I can trust.

My dahlia is beautiful, strong, and deserves the whole world.

To my pink peony,

Pink peonies are very pretty flowers. They stand out no matter what, and they’re not scared of it. I haven’t known or been close to my pink peony for the longest time, but I’m so grateful for them, and I’m so glad we’re close now. Thank you to my pink peony for keeping me sane on a long bus ride.

To my red rose,

Roses are exquisite flowers. They are one of the most beautiful flowers. My rose has been one of my best friends for a while, and I am so grateful to have them. I’m not afraid to be myself, and every time I’m around my rose, I cry from laughing so hard. Thank you, my rose, for always making me laugh and for letting me be myself.

I’m so proud of all of my gorgeous flowers, and I am so thankful I have them here with me. Thank you every single one of you, and I love you all so much.
