These are not peonies




They are tulips, English tulips, Lincolnshire tulips.

but for a minute did you think they were?

No. We read the post title first.

Clever.

The other picture is neither peonies nor tulips, but ranunculus. Another good alternative if you are marrying outside of the peony season.

There are 1293 things in my head, the book, weddings, another book, a man, and a swan.

Happy weekending to you all
