Floral Friday

April showers brought tons of May flowers to our yard and I thought I'd share some of the beautiful blooms on the blog today. I'm excited that our peonies are starting to bloom. They smell sooooo good, and I just love the huge, soft, full flowers. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers -- I actually wanted to have them for my wedding bouquet but they were crazy expensive, so I was thrilled to discover we inherited a row of pink and white peony bushes when we bought our house! (And, as fate would have it, those were my wedding colors. Guess it was meant to be!)

Enjoy the lovely flowers -- hope they brighten your day!


The white peonies are blooming and the pink ones (my favorite!) are almost there.


Lilacs! They smelled delicious. I wish I could share the amazing scent with you through the computer screen!

I love the shape of the iries. The ruffled petals are so pretty!


Do you see a trend here? The people who owned our house before us planted almost everything in white and purple. Booooring! Whenever I create my own garden, it's going to have every color under the rainbow! Still, I can't complain about all the gorgeous flowers they chose, even if they are a bit too monochromatic for my taste.

Happy (Floral) Friday!
