Peonies season

If you ask me what is my favourite flower, I have no doubt about it, the peony. Pretty, sensual and when in full bloom an incredible presence, and incredibly aromatic. My mom bought this bunch the weather before last and look how gorgeous they still look! I wish their season lasted longer, having said that I really like waiting for the first deliveries to pop up and that excitement for something that pretty! What is your favourite flower?

  6. Gorgeous. I love peonies too although I usually don't have much luck with them. I do not have a green thumb at all, (I've even killed cactus). I love hydrangeas too and I'm very excited because I have them all over my yard and they are just starting to bloom! Can't wait to bring them in and place them in vases all around my home. xo

  8. I am so with you, Helena! They're my favorite too and I anxiously await their arrival to the flower market here in May. This time of year I don't see much of them unfortunately. I wish that the season lasted longer too. Enjoy them! :) xoxo

  9. I have a similar post ready for next week! Peonies are my favorite flower. I bought some for this week as well, it's so sad that their season is over.

  10. I adore the way peonies get better "with age." To me, they are the most divine a couple of days after they have opened up. Their frilly petals just become heavenly! I think I shall indulge in some fresh peonies today!

  12. Peonies are my favorite too. And when they're not in season or readily available, I always have a peony-sceneted candle or two around our home. I also love plumerias, gardenias and jasmine. It's so exciting when each one comes in season. These pink ones are so lovely. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
