The Peony is such a beautiful flower. It also seems like such a graceful and romantic
The peonies in my garden have several buds but only a few have opened so today
while I was at the farmers market and saw bunches of peonies for sale...well, I just
couldn't help myself!
For some reason the colors this year seem more vibrant than usual. Even the buds on
my plants in the garden seem more vivid. Growing up on the east coast we had peony
plants in our yard for as long as I can remember and they were always light pink or
dark pink or white. This year the pinks(even the light pinks)are much more vibrant and
I have even seen a couple of orange and dark maroon peonies! I will be sticking with
the pinks and whites this year but who knows about next year.
When I first cut or buy peonies I put them in my sap bucket with ice cold water and let
them rest outside for a little while.
When the flowers have rested I bring them inside...
Hmm, these romantic beauties are perfect with old silver...especially not polished...
Have a lovely week!
