Peony are such lovely flowers. It is a shame how short their lives are! I have to be sure to pause and take a moment to really enjoy them because all too soon they will be gone. My plants have finally established themselves enough for me to cut a bouquet to enjoy in the house.
I had a couple of monkshood stems left from a bouquet I had made last week (which I never posted about!). I like the purple and red together, although the two stems seem to me like antenna. This is the first year that I have been able to fully see that hosta on the left. Normally the slugs eat it completely! I rather like it.
Up close and personal.
The vase is among the plants due to the high winds we’ve been experiencing! I do really hope that warm weather comes soon. I am linking up with Cathy at Rambling in the garden https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com/2015/06/01/in-a-vase-on-monday-pink-and-proud-of-it/ for her “In a vase on Monday” meme. Won’t you visit and join us?
Happy start of summer! May the warm weather find us soon!
