PEONY SEASON HAS BEGUN

It’s the peak of their short season, so now’s the perfect time to pick (and Instagram) a bunch of British-grown peonies

Every so often, something explodes on my Instagram feed. Earlier this year, it seemed everyone was sharing vivid rhubarb and blood oranges, then there was a flurry of images of purple-hued bluebell woods. But right now, it’s all about pastel peonies. These gorgeous British blooms, with their feathery petals and oversized heads, are everywhere. Their short season only runs from May to July, so order some online now to enjoy them at their best. This arrangement, with gypsophilia and eucalyptus, looks as good in real life as it will on your Insta feed.
