peonies too beautiful...

to keep to myself. You can get them at Trader Joes at the moment. $5.99 per bunch. Insane, right? They are perfectly gorgeous and get bigger and more luscious every day. I literally watched them open on Sunday evening. It was amazing.

I spent the weekend in San Francisco at my friend's house and as a thank you gift, I went to the florist downstairs to get her some peonies...until I found out they were $16 EACH. Highway robbery.
Thank goodness for TJ's.

GORGEOUS! I absolutely love peonies...especially when they have the vibrant yellow centers!

Heaven. We had frivolously enormous, shamelessly fragrant peonies arranged in silver tea and coffee pots at my wedding. They were the stars of the show (my sister called them the sl*ts of the arrangements, much to my amusement).
