Beautiful. I have peonies growing just outside my window where I have a dining table so I could identify with this. My peonies are sadly over now.
Mine are very late this year ... just coming on. They are, despite their large blooms, so fragile and oh so transitory. I wake up each morning to freshly fallen petals from my bouquets.
Our flower beds are awash with petals now. Even the fallen ones are so beautiful!
Yes ... I collect them some mornings from my table or floor where they've fallen and put them on a white plate. I also have dried them, to a small measure of success, and placed them in a tall glass vase. I love their exquisite unruliness. :)
