Fading Peonies

peonies-1

Did you know peonies change color as they get older? The bright pink one on the right just bloomed today, the top one yesterday, and the pale pink on the left has been open for a couple of days now. I bought them when they were buds and I thought they would never open up but here they are blooming to the size of my hand. They really fill up a vase and it’s a much better deal than roses which are kind of overrated.

  1. I had the same thing happen! I also got mine at Trader Joes last week. They were such a beautiful bright pink and by Saturday morning they were pale white as if there was never any pink to begin with. So interesting!
