simple sunday study [peonies]


I have well documented my love of peonies in previous posts and hope you don't mind me bringing them up again. They are all that I can think of to keep from getting down from the snow that continues to fall and is not expected to let up soon! So I was overjoyed when I found these photos in the amazing portfolio of Jennifer Altman (author of nectar & light). The lighting in these photos capture so well the softness and beauty of this delicate bloom.





Now if only I could smell them right now. Hope you are all having a lovely and relaxing Sunday!

I heart peonies. They are one of the loveliest flowers around, in my opinion. A gorgeous addition to any room.

Have a great Sunday, Blair.

these flowers are so pretty and romantic. it's crazy that it's still snowing where you are and where i am the pollen is kicking and spring is in full gear! (i'm not saying that to make you jealous, i'm allergic to pollen so snow sounds good right about now!)

Do you grow them? I've been dying to but am too afraid of failing. They are so beautiful. I'm also in love with the grey wall color in the bedroom of this same post.
