Peony Bouquet

Anemone canadensisPeony bouquet

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. ย 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!

    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.

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

      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.

  6. Absolutely beautiful! Made my heart smile!

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!
