Full bloom...

I love the drama of peonies. I cannot grow them but when they are in season I have them indoors.

From such tightly packed buds...

...comes an explosion of ruffled pink petals. Too many to count and irresistible to touch - I just have to trail the back of my fingers across them.


  1. Mine are still at that tight ball stage - love them too!

  2. I love peonies, too. I still miss my big pink peony bush in Massachusetts terribly. K x

  3. I keep nearly buying bunches - and then am seduced by nigella and cornflowers. I may treat myself to peonies this week though. Mmmmm. I have just the jug to put them in.


Hi! Thanks for leaving me a comment, I really enjoy reading them and I will try to reply if I can find an email address for you...
