Peonies are my absolute favorite flower. Late May is always a wonderful in KC, everyone's yards are blooming with huge, tissuey glory.
My parents have a huge peony bush behind their house, and all the flowers are in full bloom right now. I cut a bunch of these big, pink, fluffy blossoms and put them in a vintage yellow pitcher. The colors are just so pretty! Especially in the late afternoon sun on my parents front porch.
