Peonies and Roses

"I must have flowers, always,
and always."
      ~Claude Monet

    It has been a beautiful summer weekend! I picnicked on the porch with a friend, went for walks, bought flowers, and spent time with my family. I enjoy going for walks and admiring all of the beautiful gardens that my neighbours have cultivated. My Nana, who lives not too far from me, has beautiful billowing bushes of peonies and roses. Gorgeous! I was at the market the other day and saw these pretty bunches of pink and ivory peonies and lovely fat roses - I had to have some! I have just loved watching them bloom. Here are a few images I captured of my summer bouquets...

I am sharing with:

  2. Jennelise, the roses and peonies are beautiful! Thank you for sharing and thank you for the visit and sweet comment at The Dedicated House. It means the world! I would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party which is still live. Here is the link if you would like to check it out. Hope to see you at the bash!

  3. Hello, Jennelise! Oh, yes, pink peonies and roses - there is nothing more luscious and romantic and fragrant! It sounds like you are enjoying a wonderful, memorable summer. Beautiful images, as always.


  4. So I loved that tray black, and I also love it in cream. Too bad it can't go back and forth with the seasons! LOL!
