Whenever the other wears the other’s color, they love each other a little bit more.
My headcanon is Katara as a Fire Lady only wears her husband’s colors during important/formal events (and Zuko respects her choice) as well as Zuko humbling himself with not wearing his crown and only wearing Southern Water tribe clothing during their visits in the south. Her betrothal necklace is carved from gold and bronze (cause zuko’s a doting lover) with the shape of the flower Milk Vetch cause I love its meaning
GRYFFINDOR: “I am no seer, but I see before you, not rooms and books, but far seas, and the fire of dragons, and the towers of cities, and all such things a hawk sees when he flies far and high.” –Ursula K. Le Guin (Vetch: A Wizard of Earthsea)
Just uploading from mobile, so forgive me if the quality is awful, but thought I should upload this Voador Pink Vetch custom for my portfolio. :). It’s @valyriandolls’s doll, made by @pinkvetch-flyingpig and painted by me using acrylic paints, pastels, and an airbrush.
If you see a tangle of sprawling stems and racemes of purple-blue flowers climbing around in the tall grass you’ve found yourself the tufted vetch, a common relative of lentils and peas. Native to Eurasia, but introduced around the world, it is often considered a weed although it is cultivated as a cover crop and for livestock forage. As a member of the Fabaceae it is also a beneficial plant because of its nitrogen-fixing potential and is very attractive to bees and bumblebees due to the presence of extra-floral nectaries, glands producing nectar even before the plant is in bloom.
Both the leaves and the small seeds it produces are edible cooked and it has been used as a medicinal plant for its galactagogue properties, aiding in milk production for new mums. If you’re planning a wildlife-friendly patch in your garden you can collect the seeds of this perennial and sow them this autumn after gently scrubbing them with sandpaper to help with the germination process. For a hint on obtaining natural-looking results and a pleasing colour combination summer, take a look at the place where you collected the seeds and pay attention to what other wildflowers grow around it: field scabious, bird’s-foot trefoil,black knapweedandcorn chamomileare some really good choices as often present together and blooming in the same period.
Is there a flower that means pain, death, sadness or all of the above? My character (Rhistel) has Hanahaki disease and a flowers with one of those meanings are growing in his lungs. Thanks!
Here’s a list for you! Additionally to picking the meanings you think fit his situation the best, I’d like you to google these plants and have a look at what exactly you make him cough up. Some might cause trouble, some might only bloom once (or maybe he coughs up the aleo leave by leave Idk…), basically, get an idea of what you’re going to put him through, before you write about it. Also yew and hemlock are poisonous.
adonis (flos) - sorrowful remembrance, painful recollections, sad memories
aloe - bitterniss and pain, grief, bitterniss, religious superstition
