There have been many discussions about a symbol or unique item that could serve to support the cause of women who suffer postpartum mood disorders. It looks as though several organizations have settled on the design created for the Ruth Rhoden Craven Foundation featuring daylilies. Daylilies were the favorite flowers of Ruth Craven, who sadly took her own life in 1999 during a bout with PPD. I like daylilies as a symbol, because of their adaptability and the fact that they keep coming back strong in my garden year after year.

You can order various items featuring the daylilies — from earrings to a pin to tie tacs — at The items are priced from $10 to $27.
