When I got back from my trip to Rochester I was so excited to look out the window and see one last peony still in bloom. It was perfect timing too because I just bought this nice blue bottle at the Springfield Antique Show. I also have to mention this was the first time I have ever used lamb's ear in a vase and I totally love it! Its soft hue and texture were a perfect accent for the pale pink peony and it lasted a long time as a cut flower. I guess you learn something new everyday!
