Epitome of Delight

Today we are going to take a moment to reflect on the magnificent
"Raspberry Sundae" peony.

The giant cream petals represent a scoop of vanilla ice cream, while the pink petals are the sauce on top, as well as some pooling in the saucer below. Have you ever heard of anything so cool?

This variety is the epitome of what I try to blog about: things that are both beautiful and interesting.

In this photograph, you can also see that I converted a Lorina sparkling lemonade bottle into a candle (!) using a ceramic bottle candle with wick. So pretty and romantic. It is my kind of repurposing.

Hi Anne,
Growing up in Michigan my mother had a peony garden. They are my all time favorite flower; I only wish they had a longer season.

Your candle conversion is brilliant. I've never seen bottle wicks and noticed they have several designs. Thanks for the idea!

Thanks, Nola. You see my post last year (july 22) about extending peony blooms - might be something for you to try next year.
