Peonies Personified

Aren't these gorgeous? Peonies are one of my absolute favorite flowers as they feel very reminiscent of my own dichotomous personality: equally contemporary and old-fashioned, both bold and delicate, robust and yet feminine. These bright beauties have brightened my day.

And, with a few adjustments in saturation, these voluptuous blooms turn quiet and reflective, a bit moody and nostalgic. Hmmm, not unlike someone else I know.
