You've never seen Peonies here before. They aren't local, and are usually very expensive to acquire. The show doesn't last long, and so they are utterly indulgent. I jumped out of my skin when I found them touring at the Whole Foods market the other day priced like any other flower.
When they arrived late in the day, I bustled them in for a portrait on the high chair "stage." The full length lace at the window makes for as much drama as a theater curtain. I had no idea lace could filter so much light!
The cafe curtains that usually hang around here like stage hands have a jauntier mood. But something weightier seemed necessary for the set of the Peony premiere. . . .
What's their best side? Left?
I couldn't decide either way, so I just snapped away like paparazzi!
This may be the cover shot!
Ready for a closeup?
Final curtain call. . . .
I'm going back, hopefully, before the Peonies move on. But you never know. An event like this could be a sellout! I hope this was a big enough drama for you! It was almost more excitement than I could stand! :o)
Have a fabulous opening weekend!
I hope you have something summery wonderful planned!
