Flowers of the month: June

For this month's flowers I decided to head down to Austin Flower Co. to see what they had in store.  I had previously ordered my wedding flowers from them and really love the different varieties and quality of flowers that they offer.

They have a little cold room in back with all the flowers and I was in absolute heaven! (1.  b/c it was hotter than hot outside and 2. flowers!  lots of flowers!)

It was difficult to choose from among all these gorgeous varieties!

Hydrangeas of every color:

My favorite ranunculus:

Huge peonies:

Icelandic poppies:

And I didn't get the name of these but they're so lovely in a wildflower sort of way

So what did I come home with?

PEONIES of course! 

They're a different variety than the kind I usually get--I think they might be Coral Charms.  The petals are heavy and succulent and after I cut and arranged them in a vaseful of water, they started opening almost immediately to reveal their bright yellow centers.
