I recently fell in love with this flower. It looks very demanding. Doesn’t it look kind of like a mouth?
When I told my boyfriend about it, he was like, “Oh, it’s like a rose tulip.”
Tulips have been my favorite flower ever since my mother started planting them in our front garden while I secretly cut them with my safety scissors. And there’s something about roses that really get me, too. So when my boyfriend made that comment, I got really excited and fell more in love with the peony. With him too, of course.
Regarded by the Chinese as an omen of good fortune, a peony will definitely do me some good.
I’ll draw one on my wrist to get me through the next couple of days.
