Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
While peonies are in flower they are the obvious choice for a Monday vase.
I used a large rectangular floral pin holder to support the stems. While there are some differences among the three peonies they are essentially the same size and shape. The design might have been more interesting with some in bud, with more foliage, with secondary flowers, or just with the stems inserted into a bowl or vase.
But never mind, they are peonies, fragrant, sumptuous peonies. Each year I find myself amazed when they bloom in my little garden.
