Peony Parade! | The Yellow Spectacles

Peony Parade!

June 26, 2017



It's not just me...I know we all love peonies--I mean they're delicate, whimsical, & of course, beautiful. It doesn't hurt that they're pretty in pink too.  💗


Starting at the tail end of spring, I photographed the 2017 peonies around my home {various times of the day} & I thought to share a few {maybe a bit more than that 😗 } of my photos.




Also, I read {what I thought} was a great read about Peony Fun Facts on House Beautiful--here are a few of my favorite facts from my readings...


  • While the blooms themselves seem to be {sadly} short lived the actual peony plant can live to be 100 plus years old!
  • You should incorporate peonies into your bridal bouquet--they symbolize a happy and prosperous union. 
  • Gossip Girl Queen Bee, Blaire Waldorf's favorite flower is the peony!
  • My favorite fact, peonies come in all colors!! Except blue--boo! 
  • My own personal fact, blogger j'adore peonies--especially me! 

& You'll have to read this post I wrote a few months back featuring fine arts photographer, Lucy Cuneo's peony series on Martha Stewart Living.  Feel free to pin away...

you probably noticed ants love peonies too--it's the flower's sweet nectar

  8. Peonies are absolutely beautiful, how can anyone not love them?! Then again, I haven't really met a flower I didn't like, haha. I didn't know they come in all colors except blue, that's so interesting. I've only ever seen them in pink and white, so I never thought they grew in other colors. Your garden must look absolutely gorgeous with all these peonies! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
