I love peonies. My favourite flower. All the more precious because the peony season is so short. And since that often coincides with Tony’s allergies being quite bad, I only buy one single bouquet. And then I spend days just gazing at the beautiful flowers. The marshmallow buds, the explosion of frilly petals of the open flower, even the wilting peonies are beautiful… :-) And of course I take lots of pictures of them and make sketches. Of course. :-D
I’ll go back to enjoying my precious peonies, here are some links for you.
I hope you have a nice weekend. x Carina
