Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
Today’s vase features a flower advertised by the nursery as Paeonia lactiflora ‘Black Beauty’ (Nightlife Peony). As it lacks the deep rich color burgundy color of the promise, I usually just refer to it as a pink peony.
Lovely in its own right, it stands alone in a crystal bud vase received as a wedding gift (40 years ago this June).
The flower has a slight tinge of brown on one edge, a testament to having survived stormy winds, rains and plunging temperatures the past week.
