Friday Frolics - The Poppy Test

This week's quiz is about the Poppy flower.

According to the Wikipedia:

Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death: Sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of the common blood-red color of the red poppy in particular. In Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead. Poppies used as emblems on tombstones symbolize eternal sleep.

A second interpretation of poppies in Classical mythology is that the bright scarlet colour signifies a promise of resurrection after death.

Pick the poppy that appeals to you most, and see what it says about you. Mine says I am protective.

  1. i chose this and it says i am CALM..

    I am quiet, contemplative, and thoughtful. I step back and observe the world. I am a very literate person. It's like that I read off and on throughout the day. I sometimes find it hard to be expressive when I'm put in the spot. I tend to be caught up in my own head. While I have well thought out ideas, I may seem a bit ambiguous if I ain't given time to sort them out.

  2. Hi, am blog-walking from SK's. I am the ACTIVE one. The title doesn't suit me, but the description does. I'm not active, but the 2nd part of the description is very true about me. So... Yep, I guess it's kinda accurate, tee hee...
