I love peonies! I never know how to say this word. I love those flowers. They are only available here in Southern California from mid May to early June. I have also heard you cannot grow them where we live. This makes having them in our house very special.
I purchased my peonies from Trader Joe’s. They are $6.99 for 5 stems. This is an incredible deal. I once called a florist and asked how much she would charge me a stem… $12!!! Um, did not happen.
The flowers start off in a little bunched up ball. They look like nothing special. But then they burst forth. Large colorful pink balls of life. Besides hydrangeas and sunflowers, they have the biggest heads I have seen on a flower. They are incredible!
Did you splurge on any flowers this year? Can you grow peonies where you live?
You probably should not answer this, because you might see a blonde running through you yard with her fists full of flowers.
It’s the little things: a beautiful bloom.
P.S. If you made it to the bottom of this page, thank you! Here is a sneak peek of our walls in progress (We asked to leave the nails in. We have a ton of paintings to rehang. It was easier this way.) without art and our finished baseboards. We still need to paint the bathroom vanity and door moldings in this picture. Also, you can kind of see the green bathroom mirror.
More to come!
Have a great Thursday!
