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!

    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!
