We love spring because it brings us our favorite flower - the peony! We have some at our desk at the moment and can't get enough of the fragrance and just staring at the beautiful delicate petals. I grew up with peony trees in my yard as a little girl and didn't know how lucky I was! In the midwest it was a sign that winter had passed and summer was around the corner! According to mythology and folklore peony flowers are a sign of good fortune, wealth, honor and happy marriages. Even more reason to have them in your bridal bouquet.
