While I have an appreciation for all flowers, in my opinion there is none more perfect than the peony. Starting as a tiny little ball (smaller than a golf ball) peonies mature into stunning blooms often in excess of 5 or 6 inches in diameter. Their array of gorgeous hues combined with an undeniably sweet scent make this romantic flower a top pick amongst brides and women in general (hint, hint, gents!). Always a crowd pleaser, they are a great addition to any interior space and promise to make a statement in even the simplest vase. In LA, we don’t typically have peonies past the second week of July, so in honor of a great season (or in my sadness of them going out of season), I picked up a bunch in my favorite color.
