Romantic Decadence

tree peony flower

I was quite enamoured by this peony when I saw it, the velvety centre ‘fringed’ in gold and those streaks of magenta on each petal (perhaps applied by a garden fairy’s paint brush!)

The bushes were covered in blooms and my friend gathered a bunch for me to design with.

My own tree peonies are also in the midst of their annual display of romantic decadence which  serves as a reminder that my blog has a birthday Рnumber 4!

Thanks for following or simply stumbling across it and stopping to look around and if you happen to know the name of this peony variety I’d love to know.
