The luxury of peonies, and the kindest of neighbours

Peonies on the kitchen table

I worked all day today on a piece that is not ready for me
to show you. So this is one of those times I told you
about when I'll show you a photo instead. 

I am a huge fan of peonies -- one of the most beautiful
flowers ever.  And not one but two sweet neighbours on
our street gave me peonies over the weekend. There
is a whole other vase I didn't show in the photo. I think
they are miraculous looking.  And I am soooo lucky
to be neighbours to super kind people. I thought it would
be a good idea to share them with you.

Have an enjoying your neighbours day.

I also love peonies--and good neighbors!
I have three young peony plants--last year I got a total of 7 peonies --that I had to move this spring, and they are not happy, so no peonies at this year. But I have high hopes for next year!

Hi Laura,

I’m sure you’re a good neighbour. I have high hopes for your peonies for next year too!
I would not have the nerve to move them!
