Darlings, did you treat yourself to a flower this week? If not, my suggestion is a peony. What do you say? It's an easy-peasy type of pick since they're so utterly swoonworthy, totally in season right now and they smell better and more soothing than morning coffee. Is it just me or each time I pick up a bunch or just one, our flat brightens immediately and the living room looks a dash fancier than before.
Fun facts: Did you know that according to feng shui, putting fresh peonies (or "king flowers" as they call them in Japan) in your home will bring love to your life? That is why they make the most perfect gift to a single friend or someone who is ready to mingle:) Also, I just read that peony is the traditional flower of a 12th wedding anniversary (self-reminder: make a note) and it symbolises beauty and happy marriage/relationship. But the most interesting thing about them is that supposedly their beautiful perfume-like scent increases memory and calms nerves, so you should try keeping them near you all day. Ha, who would have thought?
Lovelies, what's your favourite peony colour? Is it pink, rose, purple, scarlet, white, yellow, coral, cream or maybe crimson? Do tell! xo
P.S: Also, tulips...
