White Peonies…

So very exciting to see my peonies finally opening this week!  Bringing Peonies inside to enjoy in our home is so fun.  I brought them in while they were still closed up so that they would be “bug free”.  I am using this this gorgeous tea pot I purchased from the neighborhood g-sale a few weeks back.

318I absolutely love these white peonies with the lemon center – they are so very fragrant & freshen up so many rooms in my home! 319

Such a pretty combo to share with you at White Wednesday!

Hope you are having sunshine in your week…xoxo, tracie

Tracie, I still do not understand these zones. You are in a warmer zone than I am (5) and my peonies have been gone for two weeks!

They seemed to have bloomed so fast and faded this year.

They look so pretty, Tracie! Good idea to bring them in when they are closed. They dry really well, too! Love the teapot!

I love peonies too. They always remind me of blousy-overdressed older women in Sunday church clothes!;>) Great pictures-xo Diana

Beautiful indeed, the white peonies in a silver tea set! I only wish I could smell them. I don't think my peonies are getting enough sun, still no blooms after a few years.

I am a sucker for the crispness of white peonies but don't own any. I need to get on that already. Great share!!

I have had this same arrangement with the peonies in the teapot for years, unfortunately my flowers aren't real cuz I have a brown thumb.
I can imagine how much you must be enjoying them :o)

Blessings,
Irma

Hi Tracie, Your arrangement of Peonies is wonderful and I'm sure you are enjoying the lovely fragrance as well! We don't have the luxury of growing them here...but they are still in season so we are all running to Trader Joe's to purchase them while we can. Hope you have a lovely week!
