She is here, the Peony

Beloved Flower Lover,

She is here…..the romantic one, the one who taps into deeper knowing. She is here to open the way to the summer. She the Peony. She is here in the most ordinary of ways.

We melt and surrender into her ordinary yet and extra-ordinariness.  At the same time, we give thanks for the short time each and every year that she shows up. When she does come she opens our hearts up to summer allowing us to stew in our own juices. She sits at the brink of change. Expanding our ordinary gratitude for life. Summer, the magical high spot of the year where we totally surrender to all our best and the worst. She knows that we can’t escape looking at who we really are. So she the Peony starts with you as you are now.

Ordinary in many of her colourful guises,  her wisdom comes from knowing that when we make it our business to activate our heart’s passions we stir ancient feelings with many possible outcomes. That’s her purpose. That’s why we celebrate her today.

Her ordinary way of reminding us that love is about sharing with us it’s infinite energy of regenerative peace, and joy is what switches her on to live your life, not the life of others.

She is fragrant, sweet and floral.  She asks us to make courageous choices. To notice beauty in the ordinary as well as the extra ordinary.  Just as an accupunturists gently directs her ‘pin’ into the body at certain junctions, to shift stagnate energies. We open ourselves up to the unknown of who we are.  Like a banquet we enjoy with great ease after the work of the day. We only need to think of right now. She shifts your energy by paying attention to all of that ordinary beauty that abounds in your life right now.

Her beauty today is red, the colour of passion. She wants us to do something active. She shows up today for us beautifully commanding our attention, letting you know that you,we, are the most powerful person in our own mind’s.

It’s no accident that you are reading this. Take heed, the feelings you are feeling as you gaze at her at not random. She makes us realise that we are courageous as she draws our gaze to all that we deeply love . Impersonal yet personal she invites us to reflect as well as be active.

We use her for hand tied bouquets, table centers, Peony tree bouquets,  picnics arrangements, single stem displays and more.

Hand-tied bouquets of Peonies can be further enhanced with other companions. Today we have chosen pretty pastel pink gerbera,  lime-green bloom and the orange and velvety celosia for a fresh and contemporary look

She asks us to make our most courageous goals our vision. She invites us because she knows it will open us into a place of  peace. She asks us to surrender to that most courageous vision, and with our picture clearly in mind, discipline then is no longer restrictive. She  invites you to be ok with appointments with yourself that do not happen. That those dis-appointments when relaxed get you to just enjoy. Now here.

Today she talks to us through the floral language of romance which remind us to keep focused on our priorities despite temptation.

She whispers…”Take action now to make your vision a reality and you will succeed” .

As you do this, know that waiting is not the same as doing nothing. Relaxing and ordinary are not boring. Take the time to be better informed, or to become more highly skilled rather than fret about tomorrow.

She whispers, “appreciate what you have today and substitute work for the worry. Then your reward is far more than that fear.

She the Peony speaks to us all!

Big kisses to you
