summer loving

I am so super pumped for Summer - in my excitement I decided to compile a bit of my summer style inspirations for the coming season. 

Accented with of course this month's flower feature & everyone's favourite, the Peony Rose. Only blooming at the height of Spring here in Australia, in November each year. Peonies with their large blowsy, rose-like, fragrant flowers are among the most romantic plants in the world. There are two forms, tree and herbaceous species. The peony is among the longest-used flowers in ornamental culture and is one of the smallest living creature national emblems in China. Along with the plum blossom, it is a traditional floral symbol of China. It is also known as "flower of riches and honour," and is used symbolically in Chinese art.
