A friend introduced me to blooming teas. They start as small hand tied balls of tea leaves. When you pour steaming water into the pot, they slowly bloom into this amazing work of art. This is the Strawberry Misaki Blooming Tea from Teavana.
peonies - these grew in our yard growing up, white, pink and dark pink. they were always in bloom for my birthday and my birthday dinner always included a bouquet of them. that smell is among my favorite things on earth!
