A little bit of luxury

I think that after daisies, my favourite flower has to be the peony. It's so easy to walk past them in the shop. After all, let's be honest, they're not much to look at when they are all bunched up in their buds.

Pretty uninteresting really...

... but then the magic starts to happen...

..bit by bit the leaves start to unfurl...

..until you are left with these huge, vibrant, wonderful scented flowers!
A bit decadent to have flowers in your bedroom, but as these were reduced to £4 in the supermarket, totally justified!


  1. totally justified and totally beautiful x

  2. Gorgeous. Totally gorgeous. x

  3. What beautiful photos! I love peonies too - we have some in our garden and they're now dropping all their petals on the lawn, unfortunately! Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say that you've drawn me as your partner for the seaside swap! Looking forward to reading your blog and getting to know a little more.
