If there is one flower I am head over heels in love with, it would be the peony.

The soft, sweet fragrance and the whimsical petals can fill anyone's heart with happiness. And while today we associate the peony as a the distinctive bridal wedding flower, this dainty flower has held revered status in many cultures and societies.

The 17th-18th Chinese dynasties revered the peony and was a motif in many paintings. The Qing dynasty even considered the peony as the national flower. In Japan, the peony is used as a repeating pattern in textiles and even woodblock printing. Today, peonies are popular Japanese tattoos, which can turn out to be very beautiful, or a train wreck of a mess.
