Visiting New Covent Garden Flower Market to write my monthly reports, it’s impossible for me to leave empty-handed. There’s such an abundance of breath-taking blooms there. And the other day I was fortunate enough to bring home some stunning Gardenia peonies from Dennis Edwards Flowers. If you’d like to see them on Day One, here’s a picture that I took on Instagram. I find it absolutely incredible that such compact buds can unfurl into such delicate clouds of dreamy blush-white petals. It seems that appearances can be very deceiving, even in the world of flowers. As an added bonus, they were slightly scented too!
Wouldn’t a bridal bouquet using Gardenia peonies look amazing?!
P.S. If you’d like to see more varieties of peonies, do pop over to the New Covent Garden Flower Market website, where you can see my latest report.
