A simple peony flower, just right for that quick card.
The peony is the flower of June in Japan and a symbol of prosperity. For the Chinese, the peony symbolizes nobility and was the flower of their Empress. This many - petalled flower was often depicted on the houses, clothing and personal effects of the nobility..... all my plants have finished flowering for this season.... but they will be back next year for me to once again enjoy.... happy stitching, Lx
