so, ever since peony season began, i have been searching florists and markets obsessively,
but i couldn't seem to find a single one. they seemed nowhere to be found...
i hadn't even spotted them in a garden.
that is until this past sunday, our wedding anniversary :)
we were walking to kensington market in toronto, when i noticed from the corner of my eye a peony bush growing in someone's front garden.
i squealed with excitement. it was so special to have had my first
"sighting" on that particular day,
as peonies were our primary wedding flower.
to my sheer and utter delight,
i found a gorgeous bouquet of peonies waiting for me on my parents' kitchen
counter when we returned from our trip. their neighbor had picked them
from her garden for me because she knew
how much i love them.
they smell amazing and have bloomed beautifully.
these vibrant roses from our rose bush joined the photo-taking party.
oh how i love fresh flowers around the house!
especially when they picked right out of the garden.
what kinds of flowers make your heart sing?
