This capture is dedicated to ALL MOTHERS on Earth and especially to our MOTHER EARTH, as without her, we all would not exist. In Austria and some other countries we've celebrated 'Mother's Day'. ✿⊱╮

Peonies are among the most popular garden plants in temperate regions.
Around the time of the summer solstice, also associated with the Heart in ancient cosmology, the peony unfolds its white and red flowers in hundreds of varieties. Peony flowers are large and beautiful, and enjoy a type of esteem in Asian culture that is similar to that of roses in the West. According to the 16th century herb scholar Li Shizhen, one possible meaning contained in the Chinese name for peony is “The Beautiful and Delicate Medicine Plant.”
The Shijing (Classic of Poetry), China’s earliest collection of songs and poetry, first cast the peony blossom as a symbol of romantic love 2,800 years ago. In addition, peony flowers were offered when friends where taking leave from each other, therefore the plant’s nickname Jiangli (Imminent Departure). For all these reasons, the peony became one of the earliest cultivars adorning the ornamental gardens of the imperial palace and the aristocracy in ancient China.

Out of the cold but nevertheless, hopefully still warming your eyes and hearts! The picture i took today, when some of the fallen snow had melted. Some of the flowers seem to be real fighters and resist the aweful temperatures. I► My video from last year: The color garden of tulips - Farbengarten der Tulpen https://youtu.be/prdhxW-ZKY0

↷✿´¨ "In Roman mythology, Flora was a goddess of flowers and the season of spring. While she was otherwise a relatively minor figure in Roman mythology, being one among several fertility goddesses, her association with the spring gave her particular importance at the coming of springtime. Her festival, the Floralia, was held in April or early May and symbolized the renewal of the cycle of life, marked with dancing, drinking, and flowers. Her Greek equivalent was Chloris. Flora was married to Favonius, the wind god, and her companion was Hercules. Due to her association with plants, her name in modern English also means plant life. Flora achieved more prominence in the neo-pagan revival of Antiquity among Renaissance humanists than she had ever enjoyed in ancient Rome."
- Flora (Mythology) - Wikipedia
