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. ┬áThe wild grass gives a meadow look to the arrangement and the hearts on the jug echo the bleeding hearts above. Have a great weekend!
