Flower of Riches

In China, the peony is known as the flower of riches and honour. Looking at these lush pink beauties I understand why. I adore peonies, especially when I bring them home with their buds tightly closed and wake the next morning to find their petals fully unfurled. They help brighten a room on an overcast day like today and are just lovely.
