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:
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.
