Wild Rose Hips


In Greek mythology, the rose was created by the goddess of flowers and vegetation, Flora. One day she found the lifeless body of a nymph in the woods and turned it into a flower. She called Venus, the goddess of love and Dionysus, the god of wine. Then, Venus gave beauty to the flower and Dionysus added nectar to give it its sweet smell. Zephyrus, the god of wind, blew away the clouds so Apollo, the god of the sun, could shine and make the flower bloom.

So, the rose was created and was crowned “King of Flowers”.
