Day 681's peonies


Courtney has been on top of the Peony Watch in Atlanta, and after seeing that they were in on Friday, I couldn't help but make a little detour to our own Whole Foods just to see. The floral department was a little crowded with early Mothers' Day shoppers, but sure enough, there they were.


None of the buds were open, so I knew I'd get my $11.99's worth.


Now that they've opened, they look spectacular in my basalt pitcher (and they smell great, too!).

Oh how I love peonies. They bloom a bit later here in Maine so I will be able to enjoy them in a few weeks. Can't wait!

I love peonies. They are so pretty.

Be sure to check my blog tomorrow for my Homegoods post... don't know if I should thank you or not! I spent too much money there this weekend.

Peonies are my absolute favorite flower but I wish they bloomed more than a short time each year. I did not know you could get them at Whole Foods....I will have to check that out.

JEALOUS! They are so beautiful...dang it why do I not get sun in my yard!?! If I did, you can guarantee that my whole yard would be peonied.

Speaking of my yard - when are you gonna come have a glass of sweet tea with me as we picnic in the grass?
