Peonies Make Me Happy

Thanks to my very verbal love of peonies, this weekend I ended up with three bouquets of them!!! My family and friends know how to put a smile on my face 🙂 The giant fluffy one is from my mom’s garden. She has quite the green thumb. Something she didn’t pass down to me. I’m just glad I get to reap the benefits and stare at this beauty all day long! Also, Henry didn’t quite understand what he was supposed to do with these gorgeous flowers. In fact, he tried to take a big ‘ol bite out of one of them like it was his breakfast! I put an end to that quickly!

  1. This post made me smile. I love peonies. I just planted some a few weeks ago. I do not have a green thumb either so I am hoping they will survive and I will have some of my own soon!

  2. The most perfect, lovely, exciting bouquet anyone could ever give me would be a mix of pink peonies and white daisies. Is it possible? Somebody notify my boyfriend..

  3. My moms cat has a tendency to steal flowers and gobble them up but I think she'd be a little freaked out by those huge peonies!

  4. so THAT's what these flowers are called! i've seen them around my neighborhood, but did not know their names. i would love to have some of these babies in my garden! you have a very special blog, nice to meet you!

    PS. that is AWESOME that you are moving to AMSTERDAM! i'm sure you'll have a blast!
