Yes! Peonies, always peonies.......Beautiful.
I was thinking of you when I put them up. Those were my birthday peonies. ;-)
It seem appropriate to consider this whilst admiring you bottom picture.
P.S.:I should add, these were the first ones, there were more later, on my actual birthday. ;-)
Maalie:Thank you! :-)My daughters are the ones who play this for me, filling the rooms with music.
Gruss Gott Frau Merisi,didnt know it was your birthday, Happy Birthday, hope you had a great day. How did you spend it?Love the flowers, where did you get them? Coming to Wien in September and I hope to go to your lovely florist.susanvon
Beautiful..i have no words Lakshmi
My mother's favorite were Peonies and you know I've only managed to raise one to blossom...while I have green fingers, sometimes it doesn't quite pan out! Just beautiful, tho...hugsSandi
SUSANVON:Thank you, Susan!And yes, I had a wonderful birthday,doing some of my favorite things. ;-)BACKPAKKER:Thank you! :-)SANDIMCBRIDE:I am surprised you'd manage to rise even one peony, so far down South! What color?
We've had a dearth of peonies here this year. Lovely to see yours. And happy belated birthday - glad it sounded like a good one.
Happy Belated Birthday, Merisi. Hope you had a wonderful day. Thank you for sharing your lovely Peonies.....what a beautiful shade of pink they are!
TIC ILLUSTRATIONS:Thank you, Tara,I enjoyed myself immensely for almost a week! ;-)ALLIE:Thank you! :-)These are indeed a special kind of peonies, they bloom for about two weeks in a vase, and the perfume the living room with their wonderful fragrance. I love walking in there, being enveloped by that sweet perfume (btw, I surprised myself by mentioning my B-Day, must have been those Peony Fairies, I truly adore these flowers).SUSANVON:I get these peonies from a farmer at Saturday's Yppen Market. They are a bit more expensive than the common ones, but well worth it (and still way cheaper than the 5 Dollar a head at the "social Safeway" in Georgetown).
I love peonies....your photos are just lovely...
Happy birthday Merisi! (did I understand well?)Did you receive the green dress?
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
