Favorites : Peonies

Pretty flowers make me happy especially when they're my favorites which happen to be peonies. 
They look gorgeous and smell amazing! I just love it when they're in season. What is your favorite flower? 

Health update: I'm feeling considerably better this week. The vertigo episodes have been less frequent and my ankle injury is pretty much healed. That said, I'm not pushing my luck and still taking it easy for the time being.

I love peonies. I planted two in our backyard (bulbs) two years ago and they never came up. However, early this spring I thought one started to come up... I guess I should go check on that. lol Too many flowers.............. lol (:

Gorgeous photos, sweetie! I wish I could plant peonies on my balcony, they are also among my favorite flowers. It's just such a pity that they don't last longer!

Take care of yourself, sweetie!

These are one of my favorites as well. My mother picked about 40 of them recently and has them stuffed all over her house, she has them growing outside but they would have been ruined with all the rain we have had. They smell sooooo good.

Hey gorgeous:) Glad you are feeling a little better at the moment .. you are a trooper and I admire your (always) positive attitude. Peonies and roses are my two favorite flowers. I've got these bright pink peonies in my kitchen and they are so pretty. I always say they're the flower that keeps giving because they just keep opening and opening and they even look pretty when the petals start to fall.

I've missed blogging but it's been super busy around here lately and I have company.

Have a nice weekend Rowena.

I don't really have a favourite flower, there are so many I love, but I must say that white garden roses, tulips and peonies are on top of my list.
