Pretty Peonies

14 June 2012 9 Comments

Peonies are one of my favourite flowers.  They’re so full and fluffy.  I’m thrilled that we have them in our yard because they make beautiful arrangements.  Yesterday I noticed that the blooms on our bush in the back yard were so heavy they were dragging on the ground.  I took that as a sign to clip them before they either got trampled by the dog or had a run in with the weed whacker.  I’m so glad I did because not only did these flowers produce a beautiful arrangement, they also made for a few pretty pictures.Peonies 1Peonies 2Peonies 3Peonies 4Peonies 5Peonies 6Peonies 7 Happy Thursday!  diana

    I absolutely adore peonies. Some actually came up in my garden this year (surprise!). My mother-in-law suggested that I place a little round stand around them in the spring to stop them from falling over. It definitely helped!

    Nothing make me smile like the smell of peonies in the house :) Too bad they don’t last longer…
