In Love With Orchids


Orchids represent: beauty, peace, strength, elegance, perfection.

Due to their symmetry, and the straight lines on their petals, orchids represent beauty in symmetry, and considered epitomes of rare beauty.
In ancient Japan, orchids were royal treasures and considered symbols of wealth.
People of ancient China thought orchids were the epitome of human perfection….. ‘Lan Hua.’
In Victorian England, these lovely flowers were likened to a beautiful woman.

Orchids are considered to be symbolic of love.
During the Victorian era, it was a custom to gift rare, exotic flowers to show love and affection.
The more rare the flower, the deeper your love… so it was believed.
Some areas, used parts of the orchids in special “love potions.”

    1. thanks, they are lovely little things! and I’d guess they’re really best, outdoors I think. these were from the cloud dome gardens. I can’t imagine they’d do well as an ordinary indoor plant….. at my house! lol cheers, Debi 🙂
