Sweet, Sweet Peonies

I love this season in particular for all the blooming flowers. Our hot pink peonies have begun to bloom (we still have the light pink and the white ones to go) and their sweet perfume smell and all their luscious petals sweep me off my feet whenever I step foot outdoors. Yesterday, Seth cut a large bouquet to keep in the house. There is nothing like fresh cut flowers to wake up a sleepy house! I love having them in here, although I've been sneezing some. I've promised myself that I will not go over to them and smell them up close (awful allergies) but I have to admit, it is very tempting.

Those photos look like they should be in a magazine! Gorgeous!

Too bad peonies come and go so fast. I hate what they look like after the blooms are gone but while they last...amazing!
