WATERMELON CRUSH – Hot Pink Peonies, White Sweet Williams and Pink Snapdragons with Emu Grass

We love this time of year for its days that seem to go on forever, that last long enough for a proper adventure and that feel like they’re just beginning (even though you’ve just finished work for the day).

Of course though, what we love best are the blooms at this time of the year and this week you’re in for a treat. The hot weather means that we’re already chasing the end of Peony season so of course, we just had to squeeze some of these beauties into your box while we could!

Their deep, feminine pink petals are magical to watch as they unfold and bloom. They may not have the longest vase life, but they’re worth it!

We’ve matched these with the cute zigzag petals of Sweet William, and a textural fave of ours – Emu grass and tall summer Snapdragons. We love Snapdragons for adding instant interest to an arrangement! It’s a bit classic, a bit feminine, and a bit tropical. Summer, we’re ready for you!
