So for all of those who were wondering… this is a Peony flower.  Aren’t they pretty?! 
Loads of people will already know this so for you I include these stunning paintings by my fab Mummy!!!
She does some botanical painting, and she painted these two for me.  They hang in my bedroom in big mirror frames and I love them. 
I hope you do too.

    peonies and orchids are my favorite flowers. i try to have them at home as much as possible. i find it quite therapeutic to watch them bloom one by one…so calming, soothing, and they always make me smile. and your mom’s botanicals are so beautiful. thank you for sharing. xoxo
