I was at someone's house the other day and they had a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers for the table. It occurred to me I haven't picked a single bouquet this summer! Where's my head been at? I usually start bringing blooms indoors in the spring.
So I came home and decided to bring some summer colour into the house.
I've become infatuated with Pinterest lately and pinning flower arrangements has got me a bit preoccupied. Funny how I manage to pin bouquets but not create one of my own!
What I do like about Pinterest though is the variety of arrangements and colour combinations there to inspire me. Pink and yellow is something I have seen online and I knew I wanted to use peonies as they are at their peak right now. I just needed to find some yellow. Luckily I was able to find just what I was looking for.
|Peonies don't get much better than this.|
Lady's mantle is a beautiful yellow/chartreuse and makes excellent filler in a bouquet. Light and airy compared to the peonies. A few hosta leaves added for some greenery and voila.
Welcome to summer.
