peony love.

peonies are hands-down my favorite flower. as you may have noticed in my last post, i wore one in my hair on my wedding day, and they were in my bouquet, on our cake and in flower arrangements. so naturally they create nostalgia for me. i get ridiculously giddy when i have my first peony sighting each spring. if you don't have them growing in your yard (which i fully intend on once we have our own place) fresh-cute peonies are not so easy to come across (at least among these parts). so you can imagine my delight when i spotted them in multiple shades of pink at our local whole foods market (which, by the way, i am now kind of obsessed with, considering i have just switched to a whole foods diet).

(wow, i use way too many parentheses. but it totally makes sense, because if you know me in real life, you know that when i talk, i often go off on tangents, or cause the person who i am talking to go off on tangents).

moving on. since i got my iPhone, i have become rather lazy with my photo taking, but i thought these flowers deserved some love from my DLSR (which by the way, i really still have little clue on how to use).

hope you enjoy :)

Peonies are so pretty! We have two plants that are now in full bloom, their fragrant smell reminds me that summer is on it's way!

Looks like you handle yourself well with your DLSR, love the composition of the photos.

Oh how I love peonies! My bouquet was of white peonies for our May wedding, so I totally feel ya on the nostalgia! And I wish you lived next door (or at least nearby) since we have two huge peony bushes in front of our house. I'd give you a bouquet :) They were my favorite surprise when we moved in last April and they bloomed the next month!

They are gorgeous photos! You may still be learning, but you're talent for photography is evident here.

Peonies are SUCH beautiful flowers! How fun that you found some to put in your home. Tomorrow I am going to our local farmer's market for the first time this season, and I can't wait to pick up some pretty flowers for my home. They always have the best.

peonies are the bomb! The look, the smell, the layers, the colors, everything about them, even their buds are adorable!

I also adore Lily Of The Valley!!!
