passion for peonies

yesterday the flower man by tranquil space had peonies and i squealed, "omg, you have peonies today!" almost gave the man a hug. he was taken aback as i pulled two bunches to my chest and thanked him repeatedly. 

there is something so beautiful about peonies. so many petals are pulled tight into a little bud and then before you know it, poof, you have a bouquet of bursting beauty on your hands. 
a beautiful metaphor for life.

with a little sunshine, water, and lots of love, it's impressive what can bloom. 

bisous. x

Beautiful! I planted some bulbs recently, waiting for them to burst out of the ground.

Peonies are my favourite flower both as a florist and a general flower loving gal, when I got married last year my bouquet was white peonies and miniture hyrdaners, I would have had pink but my dress was a very pale blush pink so white was perfect!

Always look forward to see their pink blooms in my garden.
