         Starting today, Rose Morning will be updating every flower wall story every week. Many fans will wonder why each of Rose Morning's flower walls has a nice name. Is that a random name for the flower wall? To answer these questions, Rose Morning will tell you the story of each flower wall. So, let's start today with Snow.

         So let's start with the flowers Snow uses. They are peony, rose and hydrangea.

         Peonythe flowers are gorgeous in color, fragrant with jade smile beads, romantic and unrestrained, magnificent, known as the "king of flowers" reputation. In the type of cultivation, mainly according to the color of flowers, can be divided into hundreds of varieties. Peony varieties, color is also many, yellow, green, flesh red, deep red, silver red for the top grade, especially yellow, green is expensive. Peonies also have an interesting story. On a snowy day in the middle of winter, When Wu Zetian was visiting the imperial garden in Chang 'an, she ordered all the flowers to bloom at the same time to help her enjoy her wine. The next purport said: "tomorrow morning swim on the garden, hurry to announce the spring, flowers must hair overnight, do not wait for the xiao wind blowing." Everyone knows that flowers not only bloom at different times, but also at different times. Violets in spring, roses in summer, chrysanthemums in autumn, plum blossom in winter; Rose, peony open in the morning, nocturne, epiphyllum open at night. So it is impossible to make all flowers bloom at the same time, subject to man's will. However, the flowers were frightened by the empress Wu's power and opened, but the peony was still dry branches and withered leaves, proudly standing. The Empress was furious and demoted the peony to Luoyang. As soon as the peony arrived in Luoyang, it was immediately in full bloom with its head held high. This more anger bad empress Wu, ordered to use fire dead peony, but, peony by fire a burn, but open is red if clouds, graceful, very spectacular. It shows the fearless and unyielding character of Peony. The peony flower language is perfect and affectionate, symbolizing the affection between family members. At the same time, it is also a symbol of good luck. In ancient times, its patterns would be displayed on clothes to show their wealth. There are two kinds of peony petals: single and double. There are many colors, such as white, pink, purple, red and so on. The leaves are usually compound and may have leaflets apically, broadly ovate in shape, glabrous on the surface and whitish abaxially.

         RoseIt is the most famous and popular of all flowers. Roses have been revered for centuries. Historical evidence suggests that they grew in China about 5,000 years ago, and they have played a role in history ever since. Whether ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, Freemasons or others, the rose has always been an eternal symbol of love, beauty and equality. While each color expresses love, beauty and balance a little differently, the main message is still love. Rose has many different meanings, depending on its color. However, any rose can generally be seen as a symbol: love, honor, faith, beauty, balance, passion, wisdom, dedication and eternity. The Old English rose comes from the Latin "Rosa", possibly from the Italian and Greek dialects "Rodon", and most likely from the Iranian root *vrda- ". The rose is special in Macedonian and Thracian regions as well as Persian and Latin and Greek, probably from the Phrygian language of Thrace.

In mythology, the rose is associated with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, who is often depicted decorated with roses on her head, feet or neck. It is also said that a rose rose grew from the pool of blood shed by Aphrodite's slain lover Adonis. In Christian mythology, rose bushes are said to have grown at the spot where Christ died.

         Hydrangea is plump, large and beautiful, and its colors can be red or blue, pleasing to the eye. It is a common potted ornamental plant. Hydrangea was cultivated earlier in China. It was planted in gardens south of the Yangtze River in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The parks built in the early 20th century are also inseparable from the planting of hydrangea. Modern parks and scenic areas are planted in pieces to form a landscape. In ancient Chinese myths and legends, the eight immortals once went to the Jade Pool to attend the banquet of the Queen Mother. On their way back, they passed through the East China Sea and disturbed the Dragon King of the East China Sea. The dragon king's nine sons were ordered to explore the surface of the sea. The seventh prince of the Dragon king saw that one of the eight immortals, He Xiangu, was beautiful, so he made waves on the sea and snatched her to the dragon palace. The other seven big fairy flew into a rage, their hands raised a magic weapon, into seven red scaly dragon, to the sea spewed flames, all of a sudden, the sea billow boiling up. The Dragon King of the East China Sea felt very hot in the dragon palace. He heard the deafening noise outside, and the dragon Palace shook even more severely. After asking for the reason, he scolded the seventh prince, tied him up personally, and invited He Xiangu to sit in the dragon sedan chair, carried by the other eight dragon sons, and rose to the sea to apologize to the fairies. When the seven immortals saw he Xiangu's safe return and the Dragon King personally escorted the seven princes to plead their SINS, their anger went out and they said they were willing to beat swords into ploughshares. The Dragon King offered flowers to the eight immortals as an apology. Eight imens brought flowers to China, the flowers, like a big hydrangea, and indeed is beautiful flowers and leaves, gorgeous, extraordinary, the garden has added beautiful scenery. Hydrangea's flower language is hope, health, endurance of love, pride, cold love, happiness, reunion.

         By combining the above three flowers, Rose Morning created a beautiful flower wall, Snow, using the same imitation flowers as the real ones. There is also a beautiful love story behind this painting.

         You draw pictures, I write poetry. The white rose comes into your painting. You, you got into my poem.

         At the foot of the snow-capped mountains, there is a village where the villagers live by hunting. That snowy mountain, it's very high. In this village, there was a girl who loved to draw. Her pen seemed to have magic power, and the lines she drew would move by themselves. But the girl's parents wanted to send her to the town to live with her aunt and arrange for her to live better as a maid than in the village. Perhaps she could marry a city boy and live a better life. There was also a boy in the village. He was an orphan who lived with his grandmother. He had a diary left by his father, which recorded everything his father had recorded when he was in the army, and this diary took the boy to travel in the outside world. The boy would often go to the girl and tell her the story in the diary, while the girl would draw down the imaginary picture with a paintbrush when she heard the emotion. So the girl had a very thick picture book, and that was her happy time with the boy. "Do you have a dream?" The girl asked the boy. "I want to be a poet. I want to travel around the world and put everything in my poems, good or bad, happy or sad. I want to make poems of them all, and maybe become rich," the boy said passionately. "What about you? What is your dream?" The boy asked, looking at the girl. "I don't know, I want to paint, to paint undefined, to paint forever. But my father said he would send me to my aunt's house. The city is not so cold, and the life will be better. It is crazy to hear that people in the city bathe with milk." Hearing here, the boy some lost to do the girl's side, "that we can meet later?" She was drawing a picture, a picture with flowers. The boy told her a lot about flowers, which were all flowers she had never seen before. She wanted to draw them all down.

         "I'm going to my aunt's house. She helped me find a job. I won't have a chance to paint any more. So take this book with you when you travel the world, just like you take me with you." With that, the girl turned away with tears in her eyes. That day, the boy held his picture book and watched the girl's carriage leave for a long time.

         The village under a heavy snow, the girl clutching a pen looked into the clear village, this is she bought for the boy, the city people all use this. Because the girl's working family was going abroad to spend Christmas with her family, the girl deserved the holiday and she was looking forward to meeting the boy. Many friends from the village came to her to hear her talk about the city, but the boy did not come. "If you're looking for him, you'd better go to his house," a friend told her. The girl went to the boy's house. The boy's grandmother saw her and took her into the house. "Where did he go? The grandmother looked at the girl and said in a trembling voice, "He left. The other day he wanted to pick some snowdrops to sell for money. I don't know where he heard that there were white roses in a flower shop in the city. Finally, we found him in a corner of the snowy mountain, as if nothing had happened to him, covered with thick snow, holding the album tightly in his hands, falling asleep forever. "Then, grandma handed the album to the girl, tears streaming out uncontrollably. The girl was shocked, how could she think of all this if it was a lie, even if it was a dream. Slowly, the girl opened the picture book. On the last page, there were several blank Spaces. Under it was written this sentence:  You draw pictures, I write poetry. The white rose comes into your painting. You, you got into my poem.  The boy wanted to show her. He just wanted her to see the white rose.

         That's the story behind Snow. It's not happy ending. But this is exactly what snow Mountain wants to convey: love is white, pure, full of hope and expectation. Love is the best gift given by god to human beings, because with love, people are willing to do any impossible challenge, is only a power, but also a catalyst. Although there are all kinds of imperfection in love, it is this kind of imperfection that makes both parties want to perfect it and protect it. Love is not comparable, because what you have right now is the best love. So, look at the Snow wall next to you, take a good look back at the person next to you, and tell him or her "I love you". You also have a snow-covered mountain, and every bit of your life is the brush in each other's hands. This epidemic is not complicated. Hold each other's hands and draw your white rose. Love should not be defined, because love has many meanings, it is the meal on the way home from work, it is the happy time in the mobile phone album, it is the quarrel with each other, it is the promise made at the wedding, it is confused, it is firm, it is compromise, it is protection. Roses, peonies, hydrangeas all come together to make the Snow Wall. So I hope all Rose Morning fans can have the best love, hand in hand for life. Love is to understand each other's mind can accompany to the end of life, each other's mind always maintain the original heart, stick to this feeling; Love is endless understanding and tolerance. Each other will not abandon him or her when the other encounters difficulties, but will use a very tolerant heart to understand, enligh10 and overcome difficulties together. "Husband and wife are the same birds in the forest, and the disaster is approaching, they fly separately". Love is mutual respect, love and gratitude, there is no male and female superior, male master outside and female master inside, work together to solve problems, housework both sides to complete, and from the fun of life. Love is actually a kind of hazy feeling, when falling in love with a person, will always think of him (her), whether you are reading, eating, even sleeping when the mind will emerge his (her) face, and feel very happy, very happy. Love is a tacit understanding between each other, sometimes a chance to look at each other, a slight movement, you can see each other's intention, this is to give each other a warm and sweet smile, fully embodies the love. Love is beyond national boundaries and regions, there is no comparison between rich and poor, nor is it disturbed by the secular world, without any additional conditions, will be fully engaged in it, may forget the existence of the universe, the existence of the world, and even their own existence. Love is an emotion, but it is not an emotion. Each emotion is only a part of life, not the whole life. Life seeks to break through its limitations and to move forward until it dissipates in the manifold emotions in order to find its own satisfaction in the manifold totality. But in love the totality is not the sum of these particular and separate feelings. In love life finds itself, as the double of itself, life finds itself oneness with itself. That which is most unique in each human being is united in the contact and communion of the lover, until the consciousness of the separate self-vanishes and all differences between lovers are suspended.

         That's it for today. I'm Zack from Rose Morning, and I'll see you next week.
