Flowers, stuffed toys and Volkswagens.

I was just browsing over at Design Mom and came across this post on these giant peony paintings by Thomas Darnell, and also some discussion on least-liked flowers


Gorgeous, huh? It got me thinking. I just adore peony’s with their masses of soft pillowy petals, but somehow I also find it a bit embarrassing that I like them. They are so incredibly girly it’s like admitting that you sleep in a frilly pink bedroom filled with stuffed toys.

Least favourite flowers are easy. Gerberas in fake hues are tacky, and unfortunately whenever I see a ‘new’ Volkswagen Beetle I think of them, and will strain my neck to look in their car and see if they have the flower in the vase or not. And if they do, I feel a little sad.
