This week, we noticed that flowers were trending on our Pinterest dashboards, so we were happy to run with the theme for this week's column. A secret passion, flowers are pretty much the best things ever. Have you ever known anything to bring more cheer and good vibes into a room than a simple bouquet of fresh flowers? Us either. This week, we plucked the prettiest pins that had everything to do with flowers: flowers out in the wild, flowers with people, colorful and complex arrangements, simple cuttings. Celebrating the simplicity of flowers' beauty while also recognizing what those humble little guys are capable of—that's what this week is all about. Click through and decide for yourself if peonies reign supreme, or if a field of cosmos is really what it's all about.
