Treasures of May: Pink Peonies

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

May flowers are some of the fullest and most beautiful of all the year's blooms.  Although my few garden peonies were early this year, and unfortunately gone before I managed to photograph them, a stunning pink bouquet gifted by a friend captured my heart.   

The intense pink of these fragrant flowers complements a palette of periwinkle blue, lavender and aqua.  Such bright summer colors and the large tissue-like blooms remind me of a country cottage garden!  Enjoy...


  1. I love your pretty pictures! Peonies are my favorite flower (after all I named by blog after them!). I love the larger petals on the outside and then the little ruffled petals in the center!

    1. Hi Angelina,

      Peonies are one of my favorites too. I just wish they would last longer. Thanks so much for your sweet comment about my pictures. Have a wonderful weekend!
