Pickin' Peonies

Who else likes peonies?

These pinkish peonies look great on the entry chest. But I have a secret. These blooms are faux. I am not a big fan of faux blooms, but the quality of faux blooms is getting better and better.

I picked a couple bunches of peonies from Hazelnut on Magazine Street last month, and I added them to the Vagabond House pewter wine bucket.

These blooms certainly say spring to me.


Pickin' Peonies, y'all!


  1. Wish I could have let you know - and wish the time had been longer. We were in NOLA for a short time last Friday, May 13. Had to hurry back to Baton Rouge for a wedding, however, so we were quite limited in the time we had. Love those peonies!

  2. Wow! I agree...faux blooms HAVE gotten better. You had me fooled. Love peonies, but I don't have much luck growing them.

  3. Good morning, Ron! If you would not have said so, I would never have known those peonies are faux--they look so real! Have a great day! xoxo

  4. Those look wonderful. When a faux bloom looks so real you have to check it out to see if it's real you know you've done well!

  5. Me me me, I love peonies! And yours are great faux ones. I have a few that I love too. Sheila

  6. Love peonies. Sadly, our have bloom and gone for this spring already! I am finding better "faux" florals this year too. Now, if someone would just figure out how to make them dust themselves!!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
