First Bouquet

The first of my flowers for cutting are ready now. This is my first bouquet of the season. It has white peonies, a taffy coloured rose, a violet/purple iris and purple wild geraniums... The perfume from the peonies is lovely, but not overpowering to bring the flowers indoors. The lilacs wouldn't have lasted in the house, the fragrance was just to strong. I was smelling lilacs all over the yard and people passing by were stopping to sniff.....

 And here is a closeup of the white peony. There is a delicate trim of burgundy on the edges, in place and just a stroke of that here and there toward the center.. And below is a close up of the wild geranium, the rose and the iris...
