(pssst – see our new ottoman in the corner? remember when i was looking for something printed and fun? found it!)
as a bride-to-be (seems like forever ago now), i saved only photos of big, light pink peony bouquets.
my first trip to the florist and i quickly learned that peonies have a very short season and unless i wanted to move my wedding to a june-ish time frame, i was going to have to pick something else.
since then, i always stock our home with peonies while i can this time of year (trader joes has wonderful bunches for less than $7). in addition to their short season of availability, peonies don’t stay fresh that long (a very high maintenance flower, but so worth it!).
my last two bunches got me thinking about all the things that are best fresh.
a freshly washed car.
fresh hair color and cut.
a freshly applied coat of lipgloss.
fresh cut lawn.
