We are enjoying some beautiful sunny summer weather and I hope you are too. Today, I cut a big bouquet of peonies but it will pretty much be the last of my peonies until next summer. I have enjoyed them for the last six weeks but sadly their days are numbered now so I wanted to share them with you once more.
With my bouquet of peonies from the garden along with some Lady's Mantle I made this peony wreath.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
I hung it here in the kitchen on a plainer background.
You know how I love to do little vignettes so my hatbox and similar colored teapot made an appearance.

Hanging around with angels.
I had a few blooms left over.
Don't you just love bouquets of peonies?
This is the base of the wreath-I bought it at a garden centre for $3. at the end of the season sale a few years ago. It is a wire form with florist brick stuffed inside and covered with sphagnum moss.
I am wondering if it would dry nicely if I put it in our attic where it is hot ,dry and dark does anyone have any ideas? Otherwise,I will keep it moist and enjoy it while it lasts. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the last of my peonies- but never fear the roses are doing well and I will be sharing photos of them soon! Ha!
Today, I am joining Cindy again for Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home. There is lots to see there again today.
Thank you for visiting,
