Perfect Peonies!

These are such beautiful flowers that I wanted to share them with all of you.

I took these photos at the park in NC while we were there and didn’t want to skip right over them.

I’ve never seen peonies growing here in Florida but our rose bushes are blooming right now.

My hubby likes to cut one for me every day and add it to this little vase.

I adore Peonies. They are impossible for me to grow in east Texas.

Your roses are beautiful. Our roses are blooming like crazy.

My roses are in their full glory and the peonies are finishing. Your photos are beautiful.

Hello namemate! Unfortunately, we no longer have flowers at home. We used to have orchids and bougainvilleas. But the past summer season exhausted and dried everything :(

Peonies and roses are two of my favorites. So refreshing and divine! Lucky you because you have a husband who takes time to cut those flowers and give your beautiful home life.

Hope you are enjoying summer!

Thank you for forever linking up.

Your peonies are lovely!! Mine seem to be top heavy and droop on each other. Your's are strong and are doing very well!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Peonies are so beautiful, I just gave a plant as a present to a good friend for her garde, yours are gorgeous! How nice of your sweet hubby...a rose for each day, wow! Thanks for dropping by sweetie and yes, the weather was hot, a Little humid in the late 90's and raining cats and dogs at times, too. We had an awesome time anyway. Hugs,
FABBY

Thanks for sharing the beautiful flowers! Have a great week.

The Boston Lady said...

Beautiful Diane! I think it must be too hot in FL for the peonies, because I only remember seeing them sold as cut flowers in the stores there. They are such pretty flowers. Ann P.S. As are your roses, of course!

Vee said...

A rose a day...what a sweet gesture. The peonies and irises are done. Now I have roses and lilies.

Peonies and roses - it doesn't get any better than that! Beautiful!

I love peonies and roses! :D Your photos are lovely. I bought some pretty roses at the farmer's market Saturday. I'l post them once they've opened-up!

Lady Linda said...

Oh so pretty! You live in such a beautiful place. Lots of flowers are blooming here in the Northwest. It's almost the 4th of July and all the daisies are popping out, just in time. I love daisies. I just keep planting daisies and lavender!
Have a great week.
Love,
Linda

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I LOVE peonies. I have two that my neighbor planted for me a few years ago and I never really paid much attention to them. Last year I discovered just how beautiful they smell so I had lots of bouquets of them in the house this season. Sadly, no roses. I've killed them all :)

Treshel Gallatin said...

How romantic your husband is...maybe he could teach other husbands how to be romantic:)
Your flowers are so beautiful.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

They're gorgeous! What a sweet thing for your hubby to do every day.

Poppy said...

Hi Diane,

Gorgeous photos of NC, very lush and green! You are a lucky girl to have such a sweetie for a hubby - how thoughtful! We don't get peonies here on the island and I MISS their perfume and pink perfection!
