Friends and neighbors were all talking about the peonies that were out in the store and where to find the best blooms. I had never seen such excitement around the season of a specific flower before so, of course, I had to go see what all the fuss was about. I bought a bouquet of beautiful, pink peonies and placed them on my coffee table. They were delicate and beautiful and seeing them in my home made me feel fancy.
Peonies represent feminine power. No wonder the beautiful, strong women were scurrying for these blooms. They saw a piece of themselves in those bouquets.
