The peonies have arrived. I didn't know it and as I walked into my neighborhood Trader Joe's store, they grabbed me by the legs screaming, "Buy me, I'm so beautiful". The tulips are lovely too, so I bought a bunch of French tulips and a bunch of variegated with hot pinks and oranges.
They are combined with fig leaves I cut from my backyard in a neoclassical Marquis Waterford crystal vase. The tulips are used to elongate the arrangement on each side, and the fig leaves continue the line at about a 45 degree angle.
Well if you see Peonies at the store I'm sure they will scream "Buy me!" to you too. Once you succumb, get some tulips while you are buying, cut some fig leaves and you're ready to make this arrangement.
