2013 Peony Series – 01

“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.
