Want an instant happiness hit? Buy some fresh peonies!

November brings me such joy as peonies are in season. Peonies are a gorgeous full bloom with layers and layers of beautiful delicate petals. I am partial to a soft pale pink peony but they range from crisp whites and creams to reds and shades of purple.

Many flowers are associated with a symbolic meaning. Peonies are a popular choice for brides, as they represent prosperity and happiness.

So why not wander down to your local florist to pick up some of these sweet smelling luscious blooms. A vase of peonies in the bedroom will create a sense of whimsical romance. Or place them on your desk to bring you good fortune and an excuse to stop and smell the … peonies!
