I snagged this from my mother-in-laws garden last month, before she was on the Cape for the summer. Shhh, don’t tell. I think it’s a peony. I stuck it in a milk glass bud vase on my sideboard. Love the way it looks against the white wall.
One of the best parts of the Hidden Pondresort inKennebunkport, Maine is the flower and herb garden, where guests can help themselves to shears from the little garden sheds and snip, snip, snip. I was pure joy to put together this little bouquet for myself, and one for my friend Deb too. We spotted the garden just as we were leaving, so we stuck the blooms in water and brought them home to Boston.
If I don’t get out to the Cape in early June, I miss the peonies. This year, school let out pretty early, so we just spent a week there, and thewhite peonieswere blooming, blooming, blooming. Here’s one in a tiny glass vase on a rattan coaster on the dining room sideboard.
