Next month one of my closest friends is getting married and I am helping with the flowers. Last weekend we went to the markets to get an idea of what will be available and make some decisions about the style she wants for the bouquet and arrangements (and flower crowns for us bridesmaids!). Any excuse to get to the markets really.

The bright pink peonies were in full bloom. Too late to buy them but the perfect time to enjoy their splendour. I bought some younger dusty pink ones instead.
