If there were such a thing as a spirit flower, mine would probably be a peony (cf. header, above).
I adored Brian's "roses, dusk" post so much.
I bought this peony perfume oil from Long Winter Farm recently, and while it's a bit too strong for me to wear as perfume, I like to keep it in my pocket and give a sniff once in a while. It's such a pretty scent.

mcmooatl: I'm not sure if you saw but Bicyclette replied to you: "Hi!- The bow belts are from Brave, a local Toronto company. They're not currently available on the website unfortunately, only in the shop!"
erica-knits: Ha, I knew you would!
Nome Alone: Thank you!
Juli: Ha! I have long ago stopped daydreaming about owning my own store...
Rizie: I know what you mean! I usually cut through the park on my bike.

Celine: Thanks, Celine! I know, neon everything is so cool, including NEON DEAN, haha.
in dreams: Yeah, check it out! I hope you'll like it. Funny you should ask about peonies given today's post... Have you ever tried the flower shops at Avenue Road and Davenport? There are four of them right next to each other and they usually have a pretty wide selection, depending on the season. I don't buy flowers too often, and I like to go to places like Coriander Girl when I do (local wildflower arrangements are my favourite!), but I'm not sure if she has peonies. And that is so funny about martial arts guy!
