Here they are a week later, and the soft pink hue has given way to ivory. I love flowers that do this, instead of blooming quickly and petering out. Peonies are the flowers that keep on giving!
These flowers were a gift to myself (and Chris of course)... a little luxury added to the weekly shop.
Last weekend my mother-in-law informed me that she was going to give us one of her peony plants when we move into the house... I am thrilled by this proposition!!
House update - if you have read this blog for a while and are wondering how the house move is going... well, it is going so slowly! We have encountered my nemesis... a seller who is slow, disinterested and will not be pushed to sway from his meandering path. Hopefully he will get a wriggle on and we will move in soon.
Joining in again with Lou's nature in the home.
