I love waking up in the morning to the heady fragrance of peonies.
One must take advantage of these lovely blooms..even in the bath.
This is my kitchen window display.. always showcasing what's in bloom for the week..
Can you almost smell these? I do love this time of year, and peonies make it all the more special.. they're easy to grow, and couldn't make a prettier bouquet..


  1. In our old home we had a "hedge" of Peonies all along our side yard. The nuns from the nearby convent would come and ask each year if they could cut some. Other folks would drop by for cuttings to lay on gravestones. I miss those flowers. They are wonderful!

  2. I couldn't agree more, Pat! They are my favourite flower for sure. I have 3 bushes and they were my Granny's so they must be close to 80 years old and still give me tons of beautiful blooms every year!! They smell as good as they look too! xo

  3. the smell is the best! also we should split and swap peonies.
