Peonies on the Mantle

In celebration of my 40th birthday Shannon and I adorned my fireplace mantle with a abundant mass of pink Peonies, Weeping Birch, Salmon berry twigs and a few feathery Cosmos.  Making this large arrangement felt like we were bringing all the best of a spring garden inside to enjoy.

I certainly prefer this versus an “Over the hill banner”.
