peonies too beautiful…

to keep to myself. You can get them at Trader Joes at the moment. $5.99 per bunch. Insane, right? They are perfectly gorgeous and get bigger and more luscious every day. I literally watched them open on Sunday evening. It was amazing.

    yes, while that's insane my local grocery store sells them for 3.99 a stem! talk about breaking my heart!

    So pretty, and funny! i just posted this morning about peonies that I bought over the weekend, and dang! that's a good price! I paid that much for ONE stem!

    so funny–a friend called to tell me they're in—heading over there and probably posting about them:)

    I spent the weekend in San Francisco at my friend's house and as a thank you gift, I went to the florist downstairs to get her some peonies…until I found out they were $16 EACH. Highway robbery.
    Thank goodness for TJ's.

    GORGEOUS! I absolutely love peonies…especially when they have the vibrant yellow centers!

  10. Kristin said on May 22, 2010

    and that's why they are and will always be my very most favorite flower. :)

    thanks for sharing. I don't think my TJ's has them yet…

    Heaven. We had frivolously enormous, shamelessly fragrant peonies arranged in silver tea and coffee pots at my wedding. They were the stars of the show (my sister called them the sl*ts of the arrangements, much to my amusement).

    these are beautiful! Trader Joe's? Wow!

    Cute blog!
