Floraspiration, Week 17: PeoniesPosted: May 6, 2012
The first blossoms of 2012 bring such joy to my heart.
A feast for all of the senses, peonies make May my most favorite time of year. With the early spring around here, the peonies were able to take center stage
in this beautiful Historic Garden Week arrangement.
My garage fridge is filled with cut peony stems just fixing to blossom. Following Andre Viette’s tips that I shared here last May and my experience getting the peonies ready for Flower Camp Frolic, I will condition the refrigerated harvest overnight later this week to prepare them for altar flowers on Mother’s Day. Can you think of a more perfect Mother’s Day flower?
