Flickr Find: A Seasonal Favorite - Peonies!

Gorgeous and gigantic, peonies are coming into their own right now. We love their big billowy blossoms and soft fragrance. What better way to enjoy them than to bring a few into your home?

These peonies in a window are perfect: the sunlight accentuates their delicate translucent petals. Their soft pink color is gorgeous with their dark green stems and leaves. And the window's slightly rustic, imperfect paint and screen is a neat contrast to the prettiness of the flowers.

Have you brought peonies into your home this season? We have a giant white one in a vase on the dining room table right now. Tell us about yours!
