Pretty Petal……..

26 May

I have to say, I am utterly and entirely addicted to Peonies.  For some reason they make me visualise swirling dresses, filled with a breeze, rising at the hem and billowing around the knees.  Silk tulle hems curling at the edges, in thick, frothy layers.  Skirts of paper-thin, crispy silk tafetta, crunchy and ruffled but as delicate as a petal, curving and falling.

Is it Spring yet??

Not even close.

    I adore peonies too!! Your pictures are so lovely! Made me want to smell them…hee hee.
    I have this peony blanket by “Baby Lulu” that was for my daughter as a baby. I never used it because it was so pretty. I framed and use it as wall art. LOL
