Late Blooming Peonies

You know what they say -"Better late than never!"

Arriving about 3 weeks late this year, the peonies did finally bloom this week. One of my most anticipated flowers of the summer, the peony is a glorious flower. The scent of the peony adds a heavenly scent through out the house. I love mixing the peonies with leaves of Hobbits Foot. It's grey misty color is a perfect blend with the soft pink and white color of the flowers. Such a beautiful flower only blooms for about 2 to 3 weeks. To continue to enjoy their wonderful fragrance, Nest candles has just introduced a delightful new scent, Blanc Peony! It's scent makes you feel like you still have a huge vase of the scented flowers on your table! Available at Romancing the Home, it's a must have fragrance for the summer entertaining season!

Lovely vignette, and the peonies are to die for!! So pretty! I have never seen a real peony, only silk ones, but I love love love that flowers............course, really don't think I ever met a flower I didn't love, but there are some that really stand out in the crowd, and I would say the peony is definitely one of them.
Blessings, Nellie
