This morning, after a few days of much needed sunshine and warmth, I was able to cut a few of the first peony blooms in my front garden.
Much to my delight, these were already established when we moved in. I prefer soft pinks and delicate whites and creams, but these still make me happy and smell heavenly.
Earlier this season, I planted a white Peony Tree (From Japan), as well as a row of white Festiva Maxima peonies especially for cutting. I can't wait to enjoy them next year.
Until then, these lovely beauties will fill my little bud vases, and grace each room around my house with their delicately aromas.
Have a lovely rest of the week and weekend ladies. I will be celebrating with two weddings, one belonging to my sister, who coincidentally, is having white peonies and the softest pink garden roses for her bouquet. I can't wait!
This is a pretty apothecary bottle I picked up at a Flea this past weekend on my way home. It has remnants of a hand written label and looks gorgeous in this old white utensil caddy I found at the show. More to come on those...
