{ les pivoines printanier }

Who doesn't love a peony? or a whole bunch of them? It is a little early in the season... peonies generally bloom around here and in Provence in May...but having just returned from our local nursery, I have peonies on my mind. Here is a little sampling of peonies in artistic forms for a little springtime lift to your Easter weekend.

I would love to grow them in my garden, but have not ventured there yet. My friend, Trish Allen of Trouvais, is passionate about her peonies, and has given me some advice. For now, I'll enjoy others' labors of love! and learn all about Paeonia here.

 Stunning Peony painting by French artist

 Beautiful Peonies paintings by French artist Sophie Adde; first
discovered her on Hidden in France
this beautiful peony just seems to say: 

"Happy Easter, Happy Spring.
Happy, happy Everything"
