This past spring we had the chance to go crazy with peonies. They were so gorgeous this year! Throughout the design process, we would stop and admire certain peonies that just made us smile. Below are some pictures I took with my super professional and high tech iPhone.
I loved how these peonies opened up to a big yellow center. It reminded me of something you would see at the bottom of the ocean. (Pardon the mess, it was take in the infamous "kidnapper van".)
This stunner was one of the MANY gorgeous ones that came in. How can anyone hate the color pink after looking at this pretty girl?
I really wish I could show everyone this red peony in person. Pictures just don't do it any justice. All the ruffles! I think Stacey and I petted and kissed it at least a few dozen times.
We've rarely seen yellow peonies, so its always a treat when we can get these babies in. We actually brought some with us to Dallas for the filming of "My Fair Wedding" with David Tutera. I think David almost fell over when we showed up these yellow peonies. They are as big as someone's head. Amazing.
I leave you all with a classic "white" peony. As you can see, white is a broad term according to Mother Nature. We love you just the same, even if you are peachy white-ish pink.
Sad peony season is over? Well, in most areas it is. Since we are our own wholesalers, we can find growers/distributors worldwide who can provide seasonal flowers in the states, all year long. So, its not goodbye, dear sweet peonies. Its only the beginning.
