Flowers for the weekend - selected, brought home and arranged!

Well, what a beautiful selection of Peonys (or is it Peonies, yes, think it is
the latter) awaited me this morning at the local market in Camberwell, Melbourne... - such lovely pink colours - pale and darker almost fuchsia too.... But in the end, I went for my favourite of all time - WHITE.....

Carried home (right hand photo) by Mr SE ... (me "do you want to be on the blog?", him "do I look fat in the photo???" - me "no, but you look like you are wearing a type of tunic dress though!" him "oh, ok then, if you must!")
And, look - how awful; I notice now he is carrying ALL the shopping too as well as the flowers.. ! (My excuse - I still have jet lag. Badly.) And, of course I had the camera...

However, not too much jet lag to arrange them ! Enjoy, and whatever you are doing this weekend too!!


  1. The peonies are gorgeous as it is a lovely photo of Mr SE.

    I had some sent to my Mum in NZ for her birthday and she adored them. Unfortunately it is winter here and the selection of flowers is very limited.

  2. Leeann - you have made Mr SE's day!! ;-)
    Yes, its strange to have Summer again and all the flowers associated - nice though too! (they - the peonies - have now all come out like huge frilly saucers - gorgeous!)

  3. Lovely flowers, those peonies. We get them here for such a limited time, in the early summer and they are expensive. When I buy flowers, I want a huge bunch of them. I have saved by buying practically zero flowers for a year now. But believe me, I have splurged on other things then.

  4. The peonies are so pretty. I must go and see if I can find some. I hope the weather hasn't been too debilitating. I bet you wish you back in the cold!
    Best wishes, Natasha.

  5. Hi Sarah - hope those lovely peonies are still alive apres le heat! It hasn't stopped raining here all w/e...thought of you when I popped into Planks yesterday to pick up a bowl of hyacinths which should come out at Christmas to take to a friend last night...they have all the Christmas lights strung outside; it looked so pretty even in the rain! Love Susie x

  6. Metscan, yes they were a little expensive but I couldn't resist (2 bunches!!) so I splurged..
    Natasha, yes, agree they are so pretty thank you.... (wish I could have gone really mad and had the lot!) Melbourne is so strange re: weather - one day 30 degrees and the next 15 degrees.... so much cooler now... :-)
    Susie - hi - now I am jealous - that little complex is just so beautiful at Christmas time and love the little lights they have! Peonies doing well! x

  7. The peonies are truly beautiful but I enjoyed meeting Mr SE just as much!

  8. Struggler - thank you - Mr SE will be delighted...!
    However, don't know what I have unleashed - he now has the 'bit between his teeth' as yesterday (our Sunday) he was getting ready for a trip to Brisbane and trying on a couple of suits (that had not fitted for ages!) - one in particular a lovely Italian linen one ... When I said "That looks great - very 'European Stylie' - think you should def. wear it" He said "Oh, do you want a photo of me in it for your blog!"..... I am afraid I replied "No, sorry 'my' readers won't want to see you every day!!"

  13. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
