While I strive to work with locally in-season blooms and try to be mindful of our carbon footprint, I sometimes have to make certain exceptions. Like for Peonies - I would do anything for a great bunch of peonies, anything. In the early winter months Peonies make a bit of a comeback, the florist's market is full of moody red buds coming in from South America and other warm climates. I almost feel bad that they have to arrive in snowy New England. This past December we had a ton of them in the studio for a special winter wedding.
