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.
A Winter Scene
Okay, so this is clearly at someone's beach house, but we can totally picture those snips of hydrangeas looking so great on a stark winter morning.
A Simple Arrangement
This is the most perfect arrangement ever—anyone could do it, and the fact that it's in a marmalade jar makes it that much more accessible.
A Field of Winter Flowers
We kind of want to run through a field of these cosmos, don't you?
A Pile of Peonies
Peonies are pretty much the perfect flower—at once romantic and cheerful, complex and beautiful. If this pile of them is up for grabs, we'll gladly take 'em!
Loving this at-twilight photo of flowers out in their natural environment—you know, outside.
This Polaroid of a rose bush is just lovely, not much else we can say!
Proof that flowers can also make meaningful, unexpected holiday art.
These lovelies would make a nice living ceiling, don't you think?
This gorgeous burst of color is probably what we'll be craving come January.
Apparently flowers can be kind of goth if you let them.
