I have been incredibly spoilt for Valentine’s day, amongst all the loveliness Jason bought me a beautiful bouquet of peonies. They are by far my favourite flowers, and after many dropped hints I came home on Friday to a huge bouquet of twelve peonies and some beautiful pastel purple Gypsophila. I have separated the bouquet into two vases which have taken pride of place in direct sunlight on our dining room table. The buds were all very tightly closed, however they have very slowly been blooming and they look beautiful . . .

One of the flowers decided it liked the sun rather a lot and has bloomed quicker than the others. I love all of the delicate layers of these beautiful flowers.
