Terry's emblem

I am about learning, sharing, enjoying, creating, thinking out side of the box woman. I have 2 adult children and 3 grandchildren.

Life is a journey so it is important to be grateful for not only the large things but the small things as well.

I truly believe that you continue to learn, grow and change until the last day of life.

    • Jeneane Peony (Paeonia officinallis) also known as Paeony. The Peony was belived to have healing qualities and so was named after Paeon, the physician of the Greek gods. He gave the plant its name because with Peony roots he healed Hades, god of the underworld, who had been wounded by Heracles. Few other garden plants go back in history as far as Peonies, which in China have been used and cultivated for over 4000 years. In the Middle Ages, Peonies were often painted with their ripe seed-capsules, since it was the seeds not the flowers, which were medically significant. According to historical sources, herb collectors in Middle Ages had to take great care not to be seen by a woodpecker while digging for Peony roots, or the bird might peck out their eyes. Peony may be used as a substitute for miandrake. Gather it only at night. It is said the seeds shine with an eerie light. Peony is an herb of protection by the sun. Peony is regarded as ‘protect the body, spirit, and soul”. All of this is just a little FYI.
