Friday flowers - Peonies
Bonjour mes belles,
What a fabulous week and one of the things that made it fabulous was the fact that we have had some lovely guests staying and I feel sad that they have gone.
I managed a quick trip to the market in between breakfast deliveries and was surprised at how expensive the peonies were on the flower stand. I was tempted to buy them but at the same time I found them expensive. Note we saw them yesterday at our local supermarket, who are selling 3 for 12 euros but they were white and I prefer the pink.
We continued our tour of the market and I spotted lots of peonies but it was early and the seller had not yet made them into bouquets. I smiled and started with Bonjour Madame c'est combien pour les pivoines and prayed that she was not asking a huge amount.
She smiled and I knew that she could tell that I wanted them. End result I purchased two bouquets, a punnet of strawberries and walked away happy.
I returned to the house happy with my purchase and started searching for a vase to put them in.
A few minutes later French Boyfriend arrives with another bouquet, he explains that he loved the ones that were open where as I had asked for the ones that were less open.
End result I have beautiful peonies in ma cuisine, salle à manger and a stunning orchid from our lovely guests who left this morning.
What a fabulous week and it is amazing what a difference flowers make, along with some lovely guests.
bon fin de semaine à tous, Leeann x
