one of my favourite things is fast fading.
i think i might have glimpsed the last peony bush in it's lulling glory today.

i just adore peonies.
there is something so wonderfully nostalgic & charmingly familiar about them for me.
they remind me, so fondly, of my grandparents' beautiful beautiful farm garden.

here's to you, lovely peonies.
& have a beautiful weekend, nicies.
may it be filled with wonderful delights, ever-how long they might bloom!

  1. what a lovely collection you put together.

    I adore peonies as well... I just made a large bouquet of them on Wednesday for a dinner party. I even love when they are fading with petals dropping- so nostalgic...

  2. My absolute favourite too...I MUST put that on my list for planting next year in my ever so sparse garden.
    Coming up to your next of the woods today to run the Mitsubishi City Chase...are you entered???

  3. My little sister absolutely loves peonies! And though I'm not a big flower fan to start with, peonies are definitely one of my favorites as well. So pretty!

  4. I love peonies, so romantic! Delighted to be included in this pretty collection, many thanks :)

  6. Thank you so much for including my photograph - I can't get enough of peonies. Plan to go shopping for more tomorrow! Claire :)

  7. I love peonies too! My grandma had a yard full of them and they remind me of quiet, wonderful summer days with her!

  8. Beautiful pinks! I especially like the songbird necklace - it's a pottery shard, no?

  9. Gorgeous. Peonies are my favorite flower ever.

  10. i've been growing to love flowers more and more
