“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside” – Chanel

I have always loved peonies. I think they are old-fashioned and romantic. As a little girl, they made me think of elegant princesses with skirts of ruffled tulle, dancing under the stars.

I can remember waking up to a painting of peonies hanging in my father’s bedroom at the farmhouse; they looked so real I imagined their sweet perfume hanging in the room. Now I wake up to similar print hanging in my bedroom, which used to hang over my grandmother’s piano.

I took these photos yesterday afternoon in my garden! Happy Wednesday!
