“I confess that I love him, I rejoice that I love him, I thank the maker of Heaven and Earth that gave him to me. The exultation floods me.”-
– Emily Dickinson
As an introduction to the Peony series I must share with you the meanings of the Peony in the language of flowers. The meanings vary and include a wide range of emotions.
Peony: Shame, happy marriage, compassion, anger, bashfulness
The image posted above is titled heavenly because it appears that the flower petals float off into infinity, or heaven. It is dreamy, like pink clouds. The quote links the meaning of the peony, happy marriage, with the title of the image. Love and heaven united.
Oh Robyn…this is stunning…photography and poetry alike! you are such a talent!
Thank you ever so much Steph! That means so much to me!!! Blessings, Robyn
Okay, I know I’ve said how much I love roses and tulips. But I Love peonies! The little Ohio town I grew up in was nicknamed the Peony Capital of the World and every year they have a peony parade and festival! Beautiful! 🙂
That’s Ok Linda, they are all my favorites too!!! Although, I think I’d like to visit the Peony Capital of the world..I can just imagine the cotton candy appearance and delicious aroma! Happy 4th! Robyn
Even if it is hard comparing different series, this picture is one of my favourites!
Have a great day,
