Pretty Pink Peonies

All of the sudden, the weather is just perfect! The grass is green and the peonies are in full bloom! I was so excited to see my one little peony bush blooming with tons of beautiful pink flowers yesterday! I ran to find some garden shears and something pretty to put them in!

I cut a few off of the bush and there are still plenty more on there! I placed them in a vintage carafe and an antique Strong Shoulder Mason jar. They look so pretty...I think I am in love!

I love this time of night, when the sun is starting to set and the shadows cast their shapes everywhere. It is the perfect time to take some wonderful pictures!

Don't these pretty pink peonies look so romantic on my distressed blue bench? Even the sky is the perfect shade of blue!

Mother Nature is amazing...look at all the beautiful things she creates! There are so many gorgeous flowers and vibrant colors!

I am enjoying today, spending some time with my amazing husband and enjoying our life together! Thank you to everyone for all of your lovely anniversary wishes! Time flies when you are married to your best friend!

I am planning a special anniversary giveaway...a white giveaway to celebrate my 2 year wedding anniversary and my 1 year blog anniversary! Stay tuned to see all the loveliness I have for you!

Your peonies are very pretty. I have a lot of flowers, but never any of these. It has been a pleasure visiting with you and learning of two very special events in your life.

Beautiful pictures! I love peonies too. The color of yours is so pretty, especially set against the blue.

Thanks for sharing @ Pinkalicious Thursday! The peonies are spectacular!
They don't grow here in SO. Cal, but I have fond memories of growing up in Illinois and having them bloom in our front yard-such a sweet smell! At least I can get them at Trader Joes:)
