D is loving the dark rich colors that come with fall and yesterday, while cyber visiting with Katie Armour of the neo-traditionalist, I stumbled upon this lush botanical image by photographer Kari Herer. Dark burgundy peonies… possibly
SEAMLESS PATTERN: EQUALITY. COLLECTION: INNOCENT RIOT. Rich peonies buds and flowers are the inspiration for this pattern that combines beautiful strong burgundy, immaculate white and neutral brown.

"Black peony poppy: A New Moon plant, this annual plant has a dark purple double flower and grows up to 3 feet tall. This is an older version of Black Cloud, which I used to carry until the wholesale price got ridiculous. As you can see by the pic a customer sent in, it is quite frilly and very Victorian in appearance, but this type and color of poppy has surprisingly been grown since the Middle Ages."
