Happy Friday and welcome to another {floral friday}! This week's featured flowers are peonies that are combined with some roses.
I love the look of peonies! They look so dense and tightly packed when they grow and open up to be such a beautiful and delicate flower with hundreds of petals.

A few facts about peonies:
  • Peonies can live to be 100 and still produce flowers.
  • The flowers can bloom for as long as two months.
  • Peonies are the state flower of Indiana.
  • The peony is the 12th wedding anniversary flower.

    I LOVE peonies! Tulips used to be my favorite flower, but I have recently jumped on the peony bandwagon. Now I just need to plant and grow some … especially because I live in Indiana!
