The peak of Peony season is upon us!

 Isn’t it just great to be able to get your hands on such incredible flowers which have not had to be flown in from Kenya or Dubai!

British Peony season doesn’t last for  long and they are not that easy to find, Marks and Spencers seem to have a good stock of them.

Although they were originally grown for medicinal purposes (you could consider drying the petals and using for a cough remedy!) ,
they not surprisingly have featured heavily in art throughout the centuries. 

I think they look great stashed in an old vintage tea pot of coffee pot, it nearly makes me want to get my paint brush out!
