May 25, 2002 was a gorgeous sunny day. Our home was banked with peony blossoms. And at the church, huge peony topiaries graced the altar and a huge wreath of peonies filled in the chancel wall. The bridesmaids carried nosegays of pink peonies which showed up beautifully against their silver gray gowns. At the reception, the tables were stunning with 36 inch candle tapers surrounding the peony centerpieces. No wonder peony season always brings back a flood of happy memories.
Our garden features candy-striped peonies,
Here they are indoors: in the living room,
in the sunroom,
between the kitchen and sunroom,
