A garden bouquet made with the first peonies (Paeonia lactiflora) of the season, with burgundy Geranium phaeum, white bleeding hearts (Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘Alba’) and Anemone canadensis. The wild grass gives a meadow look to the arrangement and the hearts on the jug echo the bleeding hearts above. Have a great weekend!
Spring in a vase! The peony and anemone are a charming pair.
Thank you, March. How I love peony season!
A truly stunning arrangement, Eliza, and it warms my heart to see that spring has at last come to your garden. I know you have enjoyed every season, but that warm weather makes a garden so joyful.
Thank you, Jet. I thrive and bloom in the warm seasons, just like my garden!
A very lovely arrangement. I’m beginning to really love the white flowers with just one other color…..like this one!
Thank you, my dear! x
How beautiful Eliza! It looks so delicate and I love the addition of grasses. I am slowly coming to love white bleeding hearts more than the pink ones and they seem to last longer for me too. Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
Thank you, Cathy! While I love the pink hearts, too, I’ve started to trend towards the white as well. It really stands out in the shade garden. One patch is mixed with G. phaeum and is so lovely.
That Geranium is one of my favourites too. 🙂
Absolutely beautiful! Made my heart smile!
Glad to hear it, thanks, Carrie!
Beautiful! Your house will smell of spring all weekend! 🙂
I hope so! 🙂 Thanks, Benjamin.
So very lovely! To me, peonies say “summer.”
Thank you, Laurie. They bloom in the best weather, too. Loving it!
What a fresh and natural combination. Just lovely.
Thank you, Alison!
Thank you, Steve.
Your plants are catching up fast now, Eliza. It’s a lovely spring vase.
Thank you, Christina!
Oh how lovely!

This is a real WOW Eliza 💕😎💕
Thank you kindly, Val!
These flowers are just so fragile looking, so tender, speaking to me the Treasures of Spring. Gorgeous, Eliza!!! Thank you! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Thank you, Amy! 🙂
It sings spring, just lovely!
Much appreciated, thanks, Belinda!
Love all of the flowers and your arrangement is breathtaking!
Thank you so much!
Love this flower 🌸🌸🌸
Thank you, Karen. The fragrance of peony is so heavenly!
Beautiful arrangement and photography. I’ve never seen a peony growing, only in the florist shops. They are such a gorgeous flower. You certainly have the skill of flower arranging, Eliza – both in choice of flowers and leaves AND arrangement in the vase 🙂
Many thanks, Vicki!
WP needs a Love button, just for your site! Gorgeous!
Aw, that’s sweet! Thank you kindly!
Spring may have taken its time reaching you this year but I think it’s making up for lost time. I love everything about your arrangement, Eliza. It goes without saying that includes the glorious peony but all the other elements, including the grasses, add zing!
Thank you very much, Kris. It is nice to have something to arrange once again!
It does look absolutely beautiful. It feels good to rest your eyes on something like this. Maybe even more if it’s the first of the season? Have an amazing weekend 🙂
Thank you, Maria. I wait all year for peonies! 🙂 Enjoy your weekend!
You’re welcome. I can understand why. Thank you for sharing them.
🙂 My pleasure!
Wow,spring looks good in your vase and I am certain in your garden is wearing some new colors.
Thank you, Amelia. Yes, the iris and columbine are out as well. The weather has been incredible this week!
Gorgeousness Eliza!!! 🙂 ❤ xo
Thank you, Natalie!
You’re most welcome Eliza❣️😘
I am glad your flower arrangements are being featured again – a sight for sore eyes during our winter!
Thanks so much, Anne. I hadn’t thought about that. It is true for me during our winter as well.
Beautiful. So elegant with the Bleeding Heart. And I love that jug.
Thank you, Ali. I also love putting red tulips in that jug – like they were made for each other. 😉
Beautifully, elegantly, presented
Thank you, Derrick.
Truly lovely! The white bleeding heart is beautiful. The first peonies are always exciting. 🙂
Thank you, Joanna!
Beautiful Eliza, and I particularly like the addition of the wild grasses – adds such a special dimension.
Thank you, Carol. I’ve let a patch of that grass grow just for its wonderful seed heads!
We also leave patches of grass to go to seed. The finches and other birds get food to eat too!
Lovely fresh arrangement of spring flows
Thank you, Diana.
…..and the Peonies must smell so nice…..
Yes, they do – every time I pass them, I catch their delicate fragrance… ah! 🙂
Very nice! Enjoyed seeing the arrangement! I also have not seen white bleeding hearts before!
Thank you, Reed!
I love peonies. They are such a beautiful, showy flower.
And their fragrance is the best! Thanks for stopping by, Sheryl.
A perfect bouquet to begin the season!🙂 Loved the hearts combination and the addition of the wild grass.🙂
Thank you very much!
Fresh and lovely Eliza.
Thank you, Andrea, the best of spring!
Beautiful. These are some of my most favorite plants. I was at a workshop last week with John Forti, and he was extolling the virtues of Geranium phaeum. I think I may need some. 🙂
Thank you, Judy. I can collect some seed for you if you wish. Very easy from seed.
I would love that. 🙂
I’ll email when I have some ready to send.
WOW=amazing and beautiful!!!
Thank you, Robbie! I wait all year for these to bloom.
My favorite bouquet you’ve ever posted! So beautifully wild and country charming!
Thank you kindly, Kathy. Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying this beautiful weather!
Just breath taking…. 🤗🤗🤗
