I’m Digging Peonies

Although I’m not entirely sure I pronouce the name right I am entirely sure that I absolutely love love love this flower. While it’s typically shown in pink and I don’t necesarily consider myself a pink girl I still fell head over heels for it! Every blog I stalk, every inspiration board I drool over, it’s there looking oh so lovely.
