Return and a room full of peonies



Hello there after all this time. Oh it feels so good to be back! Forgive me the long radio silence on Captivated by Image. Though not intended it turned out the break from my blog felt very welcome, and what were supposed to be days turned into weeks and eventually into months. It was time for me to do some reflection and gain new rhythm. And now that I have here I am again, doing what I love very much. However my life is a bit busier these days, so I'll be blogging once or twice a week.

Starting this week with images I wish I could show you accompanied with a scent. There ain't a better home fragrance than peonies! Its their scent that makes beautiful gorgeous. The odor that almost unconsciously compels you to look at the flowers again and again, wanting to fill every space of your home with peonies... Does that sound familiar?

I'm looking forward to my revisits on your blogs and wish you a great new week.

    Adorable peonies. My favorite flowers. Can imagine how beautiful they smell - although I cannot smell anything at the moment due to a sudden cold that hit me last evening....
    Again - happy you're back!!!
