Peony Pretty Peony






How could someone grow up in Iowa and not love peonies, the scent takes me back years, every yard had peony bushes. Mine are starting to open up.

I love beauty of the peony-such an elegant, graceful form. And these are lovely pics.

or go to my boundless opportunities of beading and click "peony" under the "gallery" (right column).
Thanks for commenting on my blog. I would love to see your beadwork!!!

I love peonies. Mine took such a hit this spring.

Thanks Nicole!

Sally, I think mine have less blooms than they might have had.

Beadexplorer, compared to your beading mine is child-like :). I have not worked with seed beads but would love to try. I do mostly stringing, making eye glass chains and bracelets etc.
