My love of peonies is well-documented on this blog–so you can imagine how thrilled I was to find out that they’re available at my local Whole Foods right now (thanks to a tip from my friend Naomi). The first night I bought a bunch, I think the Whole Foods security guard thought I was trying to steal them because I was so happy to find them that I literally climbed into the plant display to snap a photo. (I am nothing if not dedicated.) Then, this week, I found myself with not one but two bunches in my shopping cart while I was picking up ingredients for soup. They’re admittedly not the cheapest habit, but after two long weeks–and the fact that I have another cold–they sure are making me happy.
What’s your favorite flower?
