I usually love all white single flower bouquets, but this time of year, pink peonies are irresistible! I put them singly in bud vases, in small bunches in glass cylinders on bedside tables, and in white pitchers or tureens for tablesettings

this time of year, i think of early morning walks in nantucket and its design inspiration from the simple natural landscaping by the sea, whitewashed picket fences, rambling roses, weathered wood shingles and crushed clamshell walkways...

I know serious gardener friends see this rose as a pest as it rambles all over, but in early june on long island along roadways, in woods and gardens, this fragrant wild white rose looks beautiful to me...I love to snip long sprays of it, and put in large white pitchers or glass cylinders on big tables and cut the small ones for mantels or window sills or bedside tables...the creamy white roses are single petal in clusters and were discovered in france in 1824.
