This past week both of my peony shrubs started blooming. Normally I'm camping when they start blooming and tend to miss most of it. This year with our crazy, cold spring bloom time is later - - which worked out wonderfully for me.
I gathered a bucketful from the garden and arranged them for the dinning room table.
I'm using what I think is a wine holder that I found at the thrift store. I loved it's rustic, chunky flair and hoped it would work to hold informal bouquets of flowers from my garden.
I had hoped to use mason jars to hole the flowers but I quickly found out they were to large. Instead I used pretty etched drinking glasses which worked perfectly.
To fill in between the peonies I cut some Lady's Mantel blooms to tuck in here and there.
I'm loving the pink and lime green mix.
Oh how I wish peonies bloomed all year round.
They are just such a pretty flower and they smell so amazing.
I'm hoping for a couple more bucketful's before they finish blooming for the season.
Hope you all enjoy your day,
