Plant Lore Legends and Lyrics Embracing the Myths Traditions Superstitions and Folk Lore of the Plant Kingdom Book Description :

THE analogy existing between the vegetable and animal worlds, and the resemblances between human and tree life, have been observed by man from the most remote periods of which we have any records. Primitive man, watching the marvellous changes in trees and plants, which accurately marked not only the seasons of the year, but even the periods of time in a day, could not fail to be struck with a feeling of awe at the mysterious invisible power which silently guided such wondrous and incomprehensible operations. Hence it is not astonishing that the early inhabitants of the earth should have invested with supernatural attributes the tree, which in the gloom and chill of Winter stood gaunt, bare, and sterile, but in the early Spring hastened to greet the welcome warmth-giving Sun by investing itself with a brilliant canopy of verdure, and in the scorching heat of Summer afforded a refreshing shade beneath its leafy boughs. So we find these men of old, who had learnt to reverence the mysteries of vegetation, forming conceptions of vast cosmogonic world- or cloud-trees overshadowing the universe; mystically typifying creation and regeneration, and yielding the divine ambrosia or food of immortality, the refreshing and life-inspiring rain, and the mystic fruit which imparted knowledge and wisdom to those who partook of it. So, again, we find these nebulous overspreading world-trees connected with the mysteries of death, and giving shelter to the souls of the departed in the solemn shade of their dense foliage. Looking upon vegetation as symbolical of life and generation, man, in course of time, connected the origin of his species with these shadowy cloud-trees, and hence arose the belief that humankind first sprang from Ash and Oak-trees, or derived their being from Holda, the cloud-goddess who combined in her person the form of a lovely woman and the trunk of a mighty tree. In after years trees were almost universally regarded either as sentient beings or as constituting t

Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ... recalling the ancient Roman custom of burning it instead of incense on the altars. In Norway and Sweden, the floors are strewed with the tops of Juniper, which diffuse a pleasant fragrance. Evelyn says that Juniper-berries afford "one of the most universal remedies in the world to our crazy forester," and he wonders that Virgil should condemn the shadow of such a beneficial tree, but suspects him misreported as having written the following lines: -- ' Now let us rise, for hoarseness oft invades The singer's voice who sings beneath the shades: From Juniper unwholesome dews distil." The old herbalists recommended the berries of the Juniper for use as counter-poisons and other wholesome medicines, and water wherein these berries had been steeped was held to be healthgiving and useful against poisons and pestilent fevers. The smoke of the leaves and wood was said to drive away serpents, " and all infection and corruption of the aire which bring the plague, or suchlike contagious diseases." The Juniper would appear to be potent in dreams; thus, it is unlucky to dream of the tree itself, especially if the person be sick; but to dream of gathering the berries, if it be in winter, denotes prosperity; whilst to dream of the actual berries signifies that the dreamer will shortly arrive at great honours, and become an important person. To the married it foretells the birth of a male child. The Juniper is held to be under the dominion of the Sun. JUNO'S ROSE.--The Lilium candiium has derived its name of Juno's Rose from the legend that relates how Jupiter, to make his infant son Hercules immortal, put him to the breast of the sleeping Juno; and how, when the babe withdrew from her, the milk which fell from his lips formed the Milky Way, and, falling...
