The stunning leaves of the magnolia make for a bold statement with hydrangea and lotus pods to soften.

Peonie Lover

OK, so I admit to having an affair with flowers, but "The King of Flowers", the showy and in no way humble Peonie, has taken this affair to new heights.  This season saw flashes of apricot across the market stands, as sellers imported the showy boys from Tasmania.  Bright pink, white with hot pink that splashed across the centre petals creating a pair of 'lips' that were screaming for closer inspection.  Honestly, these flowers are DIVINE, and not only that, they are for the educated floral enthusiasts who can really appreciate the short lived season, and the well spent investment in placing them all on their own in a big fat vase somewhere where they will be seen from ALL angles.  Not a moment must be wasted when these flowers are on show.  Put them in the kitchen, drink in their loveliness at every opportunity, and truly appreciate the King...without the blue suede shoes...
