The First Peonies of Spring

We went to our favorite local flower farm this weekend. This beautiful Dutch Colonial home was a private residence until a couple of years ago. Now, it serves as a wine tasting room at the farm.

Out back is a lovely patio...

...and several acres of flowers, including this beautiful Japanese variety of peony which is the first to bloom.

Hubby came with me to help with the heavy lifting.

The sun was covered by clouds by the time we got home so I'm afraid that this photo doesn't quite do the brilliant blooms justice.

Hubby clipped a small bouquet of these sweet flowers, which we were told are 'Veronica'. He liked them because they resembled wild flowers.

How cute is that?
