Peony Tulips Brighten The Day

If you live in Seattle, then you know we've had a late spring which means peonies are not in abundance. Last year, I learned of these "peony" tulips, aka double late tulips because they bloom fully twice. They don't appear to grow as large as a peony but they are huge and full of lush petals. I love how soft and pillow-like they are. These bright pops of color are the only thing that has gotten me through this pathetic spring. Winter was cold and dark and seemingly never ending so it does much to boost my mood when I see happy flowers inside my home.

Flower buying tip: make a statement with a bundle of the same variety and color family rather than buying a pre-made bouquet when shopping at the market.
