Peonies- Late but still Beautiful

Three weeks late for the party, the peonies have finally bloomed.  Their blooms are glorious this year,       I just couldn't resist buying a large bouquet from Elawa Farm to enjoy for the weekend.

I love the way they look in this old galvanized olive basket- such a contrasting effect.

Perfect for the screened in porch.

Huge flowers with countless petals.

A single blossom for the kitchen  table.

A small bouquet for the side porch breakfast  table.

A silver trophy full of white peonies for the dining room buffet.

And just a few more blooming in the garden.

Look at all the different shades of pink on this blossom.

Peonies are one of  the most beloved flowers. I wish their growing season was longer.
So enjoy them while we can!

These are all gorgeous! I have to buy mine at the market and they are prices by the stem any where from$3 -$5 a stem, but last week I found bouquets of 3 for $5. I filled a vase! Sure do wish we could grow them here. How wonderful to step into one's garden and pick your own.
