Happy Weekend + More Peonies!

Well my big surprise I promised last week got delayed a bit. Just wait though–it’s a coming! We were walking around and saw more peonies this week at the flower shops so I snapped a few more photos. Aren’t they incredible?

Have any fun weekend plans? Unfortunately most of mine involve work instead of play but I’m hoping to get out to explore a bit. Thanks for stopping by.




I also write for Babble.com Here are my posts this week!

Did you see who Target has teamed up with now?
Have any fun parties to go to this summer? See what Talbot’s has! (I know I still can’t believe I want to buy from Talbots either.)
Has anyone tried these for picky eaters?
These are ridiculously clever, I want everything from Stel’s.

    If you adore flowers as I do, and it looks like you do, come take a look at my ridiculous amounts of pics I took at the Getty: http://babicmama.blogspot.com/2011/05/gardens-of-getty.html

    Love that place!

    Your Talbot's comment made me laugh! For the longest time my mother, who does not really like shopping, would only take me to Talbot's even though I was twenty-fifty years too young to shop there at the time.

    Also, I am wondering why none of the florists in my neighborhood (8th) are piling the peonies like they are in yours :-(

    Bon WE!

  • amy says:

    I'm helping with a wedding next month and need like, *all* of those light pink peonies…

    Unfortunately, they are much harder (and more expensive) to come by in South Dakota!

  • Jennifer says:

    My grandmother used to have a garden of peonies ten feet by two feet of fuscia, pale pink, pink and white peonies – they were a beautiful sight and now a fond memory. Her poppies, bleeding hearts, irises are blooming right now in my garden. Peonies will be later in the season. Gorgeous photos! Jennifer jennsthreegraces

    Those peonies are killing me! I want to fill my entire house with them! Wish I could find some here!

  • Dana says:

    Those peonies are divine! What I wouldn't do for a big bunch on my table this weekend.

    Just curious though,am I reading the sign correctly? Are they really 30-35 euro a bunch?

    an indulgence either way!

  • Lisette says:

    Piles of pinky goodness. I love it. I just got back from French Polynesia and I loved all the bright tropical flowers there.

  • Designs Good says:

    Oh my–those peonies are AMAZING. I don't think I've ever seen that many in one place.

  • little random happiness says:

    Wow! I don't think I've ever seen peonies in such abundance! They look amazing. My wedding is next June and this just made my heart flutter. Thanks for sharing! :)

  • Mariela says:

    Beautiful, so lovely!

  • Ali says:

    I bought a skirt from Talbots recently and I love it. I felt like an old lady going into the store to buy it but all the old ladies where charmed by my kids (a first) and it is my favorite new buy (not that I get a lot of new things). It is so well made and will last a lifetime. And best of all, no worries that it will cover the granny panties! I hope they make a few more gems in the upcoming years….

  • Cynthia says:

    OMG! My husband and I will be in Paris next week! I cannot wait to see all these flowers :-)

  • Hannah says:

    i'm with Jodi! i wish i had access to all those little lovelies!

  • likestowander says:

    Those are amazing pictures. I love peonies! I wish I could grab a bunch and put them all over our tiny apartment. Love it.

  • Bladh photography says:

    I would move there just for the flowers!!!

  • Anna says:

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! I came across your blog while finding fun places to visit in Paris.
    Can you tell me the location of this flower market? I absolutely LOVE peonies!!!

  • Deepa says:

    Whoa, €30 for a bunch? They are about €3.50-5 a bunch here in Amsterdam. I bought some for the house last week, and they don't seem to last very long. Still gorgeous though.

  • Bridget says:

    oh my word. i want to dive into those peonies. naked. ok, that's not a must but i think it'd just be pretty amazing.

  • Jess says:

    Gorgeous! Looks like a lovely weekend!
