Peonies


It's no secret that I like flowers. I buy flowers every single Monday (it's our weekly food shop day if you're interested) and always opt for the ones looking a little sorry for themselves (I like to call it my rescue!) but like everything in life, we deserve little treats and that's what Little B thought when he brought home these beautiful peonies. It's fair to say that I think these are becoming my ultimate favourite flower. Especially when they're sitting besides some fresh pink roses. It also slightly crossed my mind as I was cutting off the ends of them, how wonderful they would look at a wedding. This scared me.. It's the second time that I've thought about that big day (which is funny - or weird, considering this post last week...!) as I browsed through Vashi's wedding rings with a newly engaged (and very excited) friend, and started to wonder what kind of ring I'd have. And then that scared me even more. Because something so delicate and with special meaning to you, isn't worth thinking about if it got lost (I'm a little clumsy over here!). I'd probably do better with a hula hoop on my finger. On second thoughts, that wouldn't last five minutes either...

  3. Peonies are a beautiful flower - these are just stunning.

    I got engaged back in January and still have moments where it is really very scary. Exciting, but scary. Definitely natural!

  4. Maybe there's a reason you're thinking about weddings? Could be a sign..? ;)
    I love peonies - other than pink roses, they are my favourite. Have given the boyfriend huge hints about them for my birthday! Although he doesn't really take much notice when I hint things, so fingers crossed... xx

  13. I am so glad I am not the only one who rescues flowers that are looking sorry for themselves, usually they just need a bit of care and attention and they can last quite a while! Those peonies look gorgeous. I am just back from holiday and there is a lack of blooms in the house so I shall be buying some form the market tomorrow! Have a great weekend x
