A rose by any other name.


The peony "rose". It may only have a short season but it sure is a sweet one. Here are some snaps of my peonies that I took around my house the other week.


For fellow lovers of my most favourite flora,  the peony. You simply must check out Natasha's soft dreamy images of her peonies.  I know right,  how beautiful?! nuff said xox

Oh how I love peonies! I planted one this last summer and poor guy didn't make it. When I see beautiful bushes at the neighbor's house, I tell my husband that I have peonies envy. For some reason he just doesn't like me to say that;) Beautiful photos you have there!
