Hello, dear friends!

I’m back on the road after a couple of quick weeks at home for priorly scheduled seasonal projects and to tend my sweet garden. Honestly I’ve lost track of how many planes, trains, trams, taxis, boats, buses, automobiles, metros, tubes and other forms of transport I’ve been on over the last several months! No complaints at all but it does make keeping up with blog posts and visits tricky, especially frustrating when I have so many fun adventures to share with you. Ah, well, we’ll have all summer for that.

I couldn’t let peony season go by without a celebratory post of these images. Last year I was very fortunate to make several visits to North Field Farm near the Canadian border, owned by the amazing Geraldine, introduced to me by my great pal Erin at Floret Flower Farm. Geraldine’s passion, knowledge and generosity made each trip a delight (not to mention the buckets of peonies she lavished upon me to photograph in my studio).

Part of my delay in posting has to do simply with my own dithering as to what you might like to see – more travel or more florals? And I’d also love any recommendations you might have for destinations in northern France, Holland or Belgium, particularly photogenic villages and of course, flower markets!

Thank you for visiting and much love from me.

p. s. I’m posting a bit more often on Instagram so you’re welcome to follow there, too.

  • I think peonies may be the most beautiful flower…all those petals layered against each other take my breath away. Simply stunning! And as far as picking which photos we’d like you to share, can I just say “all of them, please”? :)

    Have a wonderful day, Georgianna!

  • Georgianna, I love peonies and you have made them look even lovelier with your gorgeous photography. I framed your beautiful Paris postcards, which hang in my art room. They inspire me every day.

  • Peonies! So lovely and they will not grow here. Someday, I will have some planted on the mountain and then we will see. Peonies and garden roses are two flowers I really wish to plant.

  • Aren’t you the lucky one to photograph so many different varieties of peonies at once! How delightful, G! I would imagine being on the road makes it difficult to edit and post your favorite images. So glad you found the time! Peonies will be blooming here in a couple weeks : )

    May 22, 2014
  • Oh … too pretty for words … sigh!

    May 22, 2014

  • One of my favorite flowers and you captured their beauty perfectly!
    I love seeing everything you post. I look forwrd to photos from Holland as my Mom is from there and I have not been there yet.
    I can understand your time constraints with all your travel.

    Take care,

  • It’s all just too pretty for words! I love every single picture! I would love to see more pictures of your actual travels…pictures of the countryside, houses, farms, etc. But you know how I love the florals……!!!!

  • Oh, what a celebration! These are beautiful! Peonies, white peonies to be exact, are among my favourite flowers, and I fill my home with them when they are in season.

    I would really love to see more photos from your travels, Georgianna, although it would be a joy to see the flower markets from all the places you mention, too.

    May 27, 2014
  • Simply stunning, my dear! Your photos are always AWEsome! :)

  • As always a delightful pleasure to look at all your stunning images. You almost feel like jumping right into all the frothy peonies. Amazing!!
    You sound like you are having a great time with your travels.
    And I’m sure you are getting lots of beautiful pictures.
    Have a great time!
