🌸 P e o n y 🌸
I always love a good story to the meanings of flowers and a nod at Floriography (the language of flowers) is always too good not to research. Here are my meagre Peony discoveries. 🌸Peony meanings include romance, prosperity, good fortune, a happy marriage, riches, honor, and compassion
In one tale, the peonies get their name from the Greek word Paeon. In Greek mythology, Paeon was the physician to the gods who angered his teacher Asclepius after he extracted a milky liquid from the root of a peony that cured Pluto. Asclepius was the god of medicine and healing. 🌸

I also went on a bit of an adventure this morning to a Peony field. A local Real Estate agent (Ben Milne, thanks Ben!) was raising money for the Westpac Life Flight Trust. You could pick your own flowers and donate money via Ben (continuing for the next few weekends from 10 - 12pm). I managed to find two of the last pink coloured Peonies and found the White Peonies to be just as beautiful.
Magickal Myth also has it that Peonies are useful for protection. Another reason to fill our fields and houses with them!! Any excuse really 😁
What are your fav flowers? Can you choose? (I can't, but Peonies are definately in my top 3).
