peonies are in full swing in the flower market and i never get tired of seeing them. there are so many beautiful varieties with colors range from white and soft blush pinks to deep hot pinks and rich burgundy tones - it's impossible to choose a favorite. the petals seem to be never ending and they are one of the most romantic and feminine flowers. they are perfect for lush and full centerpieces but a single stem can easily be used to create a striking look. however you choose to use them be sure to enjoy a few at home at least once during their rather short season!
