I have a few peony plants in my garden ( although I think a need to get some more ) and watch as they bud and then finally bloom.

|on my desk in a crystal flared vase|
|Extra large heads - beautiful!|
I have another plant that has an amazing 2 tone flower with soft pink and butter yellow. Although it has fewer petals than a standard peony, it is simply beautiful.

I mix different colours to create a more realistic bouquet.
I also add water to the vase for an even more authentic look. With the stems sealed they don't rust in water. And then I add peony scented oil to the water.
Hard to tell what is real and what isn't eh?
