A Sympathy card featuring a peony with pink petals set against dark green leaves with text ‘With Heartfelt Condolences’
What a beautiful flower with its bright yellow stamens set against curled pink petals.
The peony gets its name from Paean, who was a student of Aesculapius, the Greek god of medicine and healing.
Sad to relate, Aesculapius became jealous of his pupil and the only way that Zeus could save the poor student was to turn him into a flower.
Today we know Aesculapius from the staff and the entwined serpent that is the symbol for doctors and medicine.
