pink peonies . . .

"April showers brings May flowers" . . . and it's so true.

Our local Trader Joe's and Farmer's Market sells the most beautiful flowers this time of year . . . lilacs and peonies are just a few of them.

May is a special month, as it's the only time of year I can buy peonies, so I kind of go a little crazy when I find them (smile).

I took lots of photos so that you can enjoy them, too!

LET'S STAY in touch!

I love reading your comments and appreciate them so much!

  1. These will be blooming in my garden soon, and I can't wait! There's nothing like a full peony, and they smell so divine! Thanks for sharing yours. Hope you had a nice holiday weekend Suzanne!

  2. Hello, I just loved these photos and you picked the prettiest pink ones ever! I so Pinned them to my flower board! Everything we had was just destroyed in the hail Boo Hoo...

  3. I just love your peoniesL they have such a pretty shade of pink! I love peonies so much part of my blog name is named after them! Enjoy them while they last!!

  4. Oh Thank you for sharing your beautiful peonies!! I pinned the photos to Best Photography :-) I can almost smell their sweet aroma. I am hoping that I'll have a few blooms left once we get back to Indiana. Since the weather turned cool up north I'm thinking that the blooms may have lasted. I have six plants and five varieties. The plants aren't really big but I'm hoping one day . . . In the meantime, thank you for the awesome photos and may you have a beautiful day. Big Hugs!!

  14. I was just thinking that I need more peonies in my life! I have one in yellow, but would love some pretty shades of pink. Off to the nursery I go!

  15. Thank you so much for sharing! I love peonies, but can't seem to find them anywhere out here! I'll have to try Trader Joe's - it's a bit of a drive, but would be so worth it!
