Delicate Whites

Hello,

I am so glad you came back as I enjoyed taking these photos for you of my delicate white peonies.

I think they look rather beautiful against the delicate antique lace blouse.

This is a Festiva Maxima peony that came from my Dad's garden many years ago. It is taller then some and very fragrant. It has a hint or red in it.

I think this is Charlie's White peony.

This one is Krinkled White, and it doesn't need to be staked.

I love to have big bouquets of peonies in the house.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing another batch of peonies from our garden. I still have more to share but I will share something different first. I do have some other photos of the Island that I am hoping you will enjoy.

I am joinng in with Kathleen today for White Wednesday at Faded Charm where you can enjoy lots of beautiful whites.

Thank you for visiting me,

&

Take care,

Carolyn

Your peonies are just stunning, so beautiful. I live in Florida and unfortunately you can't grow peonies, it is to hot. So I have to resigned myself and enjoy yours instead.
Sweet Blessings,

Exquisite white peonies, Carolyn! I don't think I have ever grown such fragrant peonies before. Do you think it is our lovely Island sea air that contributes? So looking forward to your upcoming Island photos. :)

So absolutely gorgeous. I especially love the ones with the hint of reddish/pink in them. They would be SO beautiful for a wedding (I'm getting ideas already)!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

I love, love, love peonies! I'm keeping this post. It is like an encyclopedia of the best peonies. I am in the market more peonies. And now I have a great reference.
Beautiful post!

Ooh, I just saw what Lady Farmer said, "these must be the flowers they will have in heaven,"! So true, they are absolutely DELICIOUS looking!!! Yours are TDF!
I only have one white bush and it only has one more bud on it, I am watching it closely to see if it is going to bloom, I so hope so. I want to feature it again. I love the peonies so much, I feel so blessed to have "Heaven's flowers" in my backyard!
Hugs, Cindy S

Just amazing photos again today Carolyn. I think white peonies are definitely my favorites. I had couple of peonies started to bloom today and now I am excited to see the others show up. Have you ever heard of the peony 'Autin's Pride'? There is no better smelling white peony in the world I think. It is a late bloomer, and so worth the wait.

So perfect and dreamy. I want to live in a white world of flowers and fabric with a pink sky. Your photos are wonderful. They really transport me to another beautiful world.I am so glad I can see them.

Georgianna said...

Oh, I missed this one when we were away. These are fabulous and I love them paired with the white linens – perfect! I can't imagine having so many peonies in my own garden.
