Orchid - The name comes from the Ancient Greek (órkhis), literally meaning "testicle", because of the shape of the root. The Greek myth of Orchis explains the origin of the plants. Orchis, the son of a nymph and a satyr, came upon a festival of Dionysus (Bacchus) in the forest. He drank too much, and attempted to rape a priestess of Dionysus. For his insult, he was torn apart by the Bacchanalians. His father prayed for him to be restored, but the gods instead changed him into a flower.

The chestnut group is a genus of 8 or 9 species of deciduous trees and shrubs in the beech family.  The name also refers to the edible nuts they produce.  Always served as part of the New Year menu in Japan, chestnuts represent both success and hard times—mastery and strength. The Japanese chestnut (called kuri) was in cultivation before rice. The fruit can be peeled and eaten raw, but it can be astringent. Another method of eating the fruit involves roasting, which does not require peeling.
