The peonies are in full bloom and I could not be more delighted by their fragrant and colorful charms! I picked several blooms from the bushes from the family homestead this past weekend and I went a wee bit crazy snapping photos of them (I get into this snap-happy mode when it comes to taking pics sometimes. It’s a serious problem – at least when it comes to choosing which ones to share!). Here are just a few of my favs…
This was taken outside, before I decided which blossoms to pluck to take home with me. I just love the awesome color pop – thank you sunshine!
These two were taken in the kitchen as I placing them into vases – the lighting was fantastic and the water droplets, window and sink just add to the charm!
I placed two of the lovely peonies in the bathroom, where they look fetchingly vintage in their glass salt-shaker jar, sitting on the faded and rather shabby counter-top (I try for a sort of bohemian/vintage decor to make the aged parts flow a bit nicer and I think it works…or at least makes ’em tolerable, tee-hee!).
This was a just because I thought the lighting was great and I love taking pictures and I love flowers!
I hope you get a chance to stop and smell the peonies (or any other flowers of your choosing) today!
Namaste ~ Ella
