In love with Peonies

Originally uploaded by Teckelcar
My peonies are in bloom and that makes me so very happy. I love their big, overblown and blowsy look. With one bloom you practically have an arrangement.

I essentially gave the florist at our wedding carte blanche. All I wanted was lilacs and whatever was in season, the rest was up to them. I had worked for them a few summers earlier and I knew what beautiful things they could do.

And oh the flowers we got! Little sweetheart roses of the palest pink were tucked in the the lilacs (from one of the florists backyards!) in my bouquet. The table arrangements featured big beautiful peonies along with the lilacs in simple glass vases. It was all very simple and simply gorgeous.
