That big bucket of the first of the season peonies I spotted at the Market last Saturday are the Flower Friday blooms for the week. Enjoyed for all to see in the shop that day, they then made the ferry crossing to and from Vashon Island. They have been gracing the dining table this week in town to much happiness. The above image when I first saw them. Love when the buds are closed up, just waiting to explode to show the world their ruffly beauty.
