Peony's for the table

I think Peony's look best overflowing a vase on my dining room table!

Great peonies! I don't have many, and the ones I do have aren't producing blooms like they used to. I probably should do something about that.

Thanks for showing us yours.

A very beautiful arrangement of peonies. They really are lovely.

We had a good year for Peonies this year. Mine just finished. The thunderstorms the last couple of days have done them in. When I moved into this house 8-9 years ago, there were a group of peonies under a big maple tree that weren't doing much. I dug them out, separated them, and put them in a sunnier area. I have divided them twice since and now have 6 large clumps in the yard. Love em, we have been enjoying vases of them too. Iris are done, peonies are done - Lilies will be the next big blooms, and they are my favorites!

They are absolutely beautiful, and you have at least two lovely vases. If you have a collection, I wish you would set it out and take a picture ans share them with us. I love pretty vases and it would be a treat to see.

Kay, yeah I have a whole collection of Hull vases, this McCoy is a hand me down from my Mother in law. Funny, when I received it, I didn't really like it. NOW I love it! Most of my vases sit in a cabinet gathering dust, this one I LOVE to use for Peonies.

MilaB, the other flowers in the arrangement, I stuck some geranium in there, no idea what variety. I know I put in one plant years ago, and now it is growing everywhere. The greenery I think is Anise Hyssop, I know it's a hyssop with a chartreuse color that I encourage to reseed around the gardens. It always adds a bright spot. Oh yeah I have some wild parsnips growing, so I cut the flower and stuck that in too. Can't let that reseed, or I will have a mess. Looks nice in an arrangement though.

Thanks everyone!
