Pretty peonies

Yet one more wonderful thing about this time of year is the abundance of peonies. I found two hidden in the depths of our garden (sadly they were past their best) but thanks to our local farmers' market, I've had this pretty vase full for more than a week now! I love seeing fresh flowers in the house, such a pretty treat.

Note: Peonies like the cold, so fill their vase with ice cubes everyday and you'll extend their blooming time!
