The Search for Peonies [in Dallas]


Long story short, I have been borderline obsessed with peonies for a very long time. I wanted them to be a part of my wedding bouquet, but they were not in season at the time. Peonies are a little harder to find in Texas because I have been told by florists that they have difficulty growing here! It seems they are more easily accessible in places like California and the Northeast. 

I called a few places this morning to see what they had left and while Central Market told me they were out of season so they didn't have anymore...I called Whole Foods Park Lane in Dallas and they said they had a few left of pink or ivory. So, I left the house immediately to go pick some up! To my surprise, they had a fairly good selection left when I arrived.

The search has thus been ended...with SUCCESS! Do you have a favorite flower that is hard to find? Do share!

Wait until you see the photo roundup from date night with Hubby last night! It gave me ALLLLLLL SORTS OF LIFE!! I cannot give much away for now! :) Stay tuned!
