Peony

I was going through some of my old photographs and came across this picture. It's a picture I took of a small bouquet of peonies last spring. 

The peonies have been pushing their way through the soggy soil this past week and it's made me very excited. 

Peonies, hydrangeas, roses...I xoxo you summer.

Ah, Peonies are the essence of spring in a sent! My peonies are stretching their nodding heads also. I have about 15 different varieties of them: a growing addiction. But it's a perfect addiction and I look forward to seeing each one of them. Thanks for sharing. I hope your babies will get to enjoy the nice warm spring air soon!

Amy @ Homestead Revival said...

For a minute I thought you were going to say that your peonies were already blooming! Whew! Mine are just pushing up through the dirt. But at least they are still there!!

Rhonda said...

Beautiful bouquet! And that vase just sets them off perfectly. :)

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

So pretty. I love Peonies. They not only look pretty but smell so awesome. Great photo.

kathy said...

I agree! My hydrangea's are just beginning to push their tiny sprouts of leaves and peonies are standing tall. The bleeding hearts are always the first (and last) to show. I bet you would love them, too. The lacy leaves are beautiful. Mine are dwarf varieties and while they aren't able to be brought inside to vases, they are amazing outside.

I actually sighed and went "ahhh' when I saw your sweet peony picture! It was the perfect prettiness I needed to see on this 'yet another' gray and rainy spring (ha) day! Love the little hobnail vase...they were meant for each other.
So happy you're seeing those special signs of floral life waking up...they do help keep thoughts of warm, sunny days alive and real.

Dianne said...

Very pretty, Tina. I used to grow peonies at our lakehouse and they were destroyed when we had the house renovated. I was so sad. Someday I will plant more. Your picture tugged at my heart!
