First Peonies of the Season

Peonies are my all time favorite flower. I adore the different shades of pink (it’s kinda weird because I’m not even a pink fan. But when it comes to peonies, pink is THE color ;-P). The paper thin petals made me realize how lighthearted, vivid and subtle pink can be <3. Besides, Peonies smell so heavenly delicate, and they last a pretty long time as cut flowers…

And… Gosh, it’s really hard to find the best way to describe my love for peonies, because they are just too gorgeous for words. lol~~

    I’m with you! Love the peonies that are not blooming yet.
    My wedding bouquet is made of pink peonies :) But they don’t look too good once dried :(

    不靠谱滴,俺以前对牡丹的印象都是工笔画里的,多少总觉得有些艳俗。真正爱上牡丹是见了实物以后,娇羞粉嫩却一点儿也不做作,跟俗气更是靠不上边。真真正正美轮美奂啊~~

    jibjab, wow~~ I wish I could see a photo of your stunning bouquet. ;-P I never have peonies dried, only some tulips petals and they actually look not that bad. Let me show you a picture next time.

    Cindy, thank you for dropping by. Unfortunately, I have no idea where to buy peonies in the States coz I am based in Europe. I got mine at a local flower shop.

    I hope some other readers of this blog could chime in and share their experience. :)

    Lately, I’ve been buying flowers. Right now, it’s tulips but I’m definitely going to check out peonies at my local florist.

    Peonies are hard to take care of, right? I don’t see them often here but lots lots of Rhodies and azeleas. :)

    CCC, you go girl~~ They are just perfect for Spring! :-)

    featherfactor, oh I am sorry to hear this. Maybe you can order it from some special flower dealers?

    streetwithnoname, I only buy fresh peonies from florist (don’t have them in our garden, but Azaleas. xixi). As far as cut peonies are concerned, you don’t really need to pay extra care to them. ;-)
