Peony Harvest

Monday, February 3, 2014


Le sigh, after spotting those images from Patchell-Parks Farms' yearly peony harvest, I decided that in my next life Balazs and I will move out to the countryside, get a cottage with a tree-swing and start a peony farm! Ah, what a dream it would be to wake up each morning to fields of swoonworthy colourful blooms. Btw: what's your favourite flower? xo

P.S: Remember this nifty little fresh flowers trick? Plus, my flower epiphany and this organic flower farm.
P.P.S: Ah, this cozy little house is also on the Sauvie Island as the peony farm.

A peony farm sounds amazing! I would love to be surrounded by so much beauty. Lately I've noticed that our florist bill has been higher than our grocery bill!

Peonies are my favorite! SO beautiful and I love their scent! I have some bushes in my garden and I always have to cut some for inside our house when they bloom! xxx

I love peonies! So many beautiful color variations. They were the main flower in all my wedding arrangements. Strangely enough, my hometown in Alaska has a booming peony industry. They can grow and harvest the flowers slightly later in the season than other places, so the growers have been doing really well the last few years! It only seemed fitting to have beautiful local flowers AND support a new homegrown industry when picking my wedding flowers. :)

OMG! Toby and I will buy the peony farm next to yours! What a gorgeous dream! :)

Oh wow, I live about a 20-30 minute drive from Sauvie Island. It's so close to downtown Portland, but it's like a different world. I went swimming there this summer, in fact. Right now it's covered in snow, but thanks for the reminder to go out to visit the flower farms this spring.

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..Chrissy, that is wonderful:)

Diana Mieczan said...

That is totally awesome, Erin and I didn not know that Alaska has a booming peony industry. How amazing!

Diana Mieczan said...

Deal, Katie! :)

Diana Mieczan said...

You totally should, Rachel! How cool!
