About Myths and Flora - Goddess Lada and Peony

Lada is the Old Slavic goddess of love and marriage. She is celebrated for her beauty and attractiveness, and is presented as the most beautiful Slavic woman with long golden hair braided with wheat. She reigns in the summer, in the period of fertility when everything grows and flourishes, and various rituals were dedicated to her in order to beg for rain for the thirsty land and encourage the growth of plants. The natural phenomena that are assigned to her are the sun, warm nights and rain, while her plants are cherry, linden, dandelion and peony.
