Peonies

๑♥๑ Peony ๑♥๑


~ One of the most sensual flowers with a delicious scent, the peony has long been used in feng shui as a cure for love & romance. This especially applies to a couple of pink peonies. The symbol of peony is often considered a metaphor for female beauty. Some feng shui masters do not recommend having the image of a flowering peony in an older couple's bedroom in order to prevent affairs with younger women ~

~ The universal language of flowers crosses any cultural boundaries, interpretations or meanings.The flowers evoke in all humans - a feeling of beauty, grace, and a delicate, alive sensuality.

 
A peony represents wealth and honor. They also embody romance and love, and are regarded as the omen of good fortune and happy marriage. It is also the state flower of Indiana, and the 12th wedding anniversary flower.


The Chinese name for the peony is sho yu. This means "most beautiful." The peony is the traditional flower symbol of China.


Greek mythology:The mythology around the peony has many versions. One legend tells that the peony is named after Paeon, a physician to the gods. He received the flower on Mount Olympus from the mother of Apollo.Another myth tells the story of that same physician who was saved from the fate of dying as other mortals. He was turned into the flower known as the peony.
One more story links the peony to the moon. It was believed that the moon goddess created this flower to reflect the moon's beams during the night ~
