  2. I love peonies, my favorite flower too. Such pretty colors.

    Not sure I'd prefer them on my table every day to diamonds on my neck, thats a tough call to make for me!

  10. Peonies are beautiful, but I'm a sucker for those blood red dahlias. I had them in my wedding bouquet. Every time I see one I get butterflies in my stomach because I'm reminded of the best day of my life.

  13. I'm so glad there's someone who shares my obsession with peonies!! Thank you for these pictures. The short bloom season means we have to go through peony withdrawals for quite a while. :)

  14. I love them too! I definitely want them in my wedding bouquet if I get married some day. And Daisy's. I'm obsessed with those too.

  17. Such beautiful flower pics!

    I've never actually seen it, but once when I saw seeds in the garden section at some store, i fell in LOVE with a flower.
    It's called, the

    "moonflower".

  22. Peonies are amazing. I am lucky in that I have several bushess that bloom like crazy in the spring. Impossible to pick a fav flower as so many pretty options!

  23. SO agree with you on that one.. peonies are the loveliest flower!! always make me smile :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Peonies are my favorite flower. Hands down. There's just something about them! So elegant and beautiful. If it were up to me, I'd have fresh ones all over my apartment every day...but seeing as how my cats chew up any flowers I have ever brought into my home, it's sadly not an option!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, I have the same obsession. They are so romantic! I thought I was going to cry when I found out they weren't available for my wedding :)

    Gorgeous pictures.

  50. Where can one buy fresh Peonies in the States? I've never seen them at the Grocery store thats for sure. Are they in season year round? Love them!

    ReplyDelete
  51. These are gorgeous pictures! I never knew much about peonies until our amazing wedding florist informed us that we were lucky enough to be getting married at the peak of peony season and that girls would KILL to have big full peonies like we could easily get. I am now in total awe and love with them. They will always remind me of the happiest day of my life.
