I was inspired to celebrate spring when I saw this beautiful post about peonies from Lindsay Emery of Suite One Studio. Unfortunately I have not sighted any peonies at any of the farmers markets since we moved to San Diego.
Peonies are my favorite flowers. They are a rare fusion of fragility, majesty, and beauty.
As luck would have it, a friend showed up to work with two bunches of peonies. She had bought them from Trader Joe’s. Imagine that! I was beyond excited as I stood in front of the peonies section to make my selection. It must have taken over fifteen minutes to decide but I finally went with the light pink ones since they reminded me of my wedding bouquet.
They took a few days to bloom so we got to enjoy these breathtaking beauties for a whole week.
These peonies are perfect for savoring the last few days of spring since summer is right around the corner.
