Francophile Friday Fleurish: Eva's Paris Peonies

ink & watercolour ACEO weensies, each one 3.5" x 2.5" [9 x 6.5cm]

I don't think it's peony season anywhere on the globe at the moment, except perhaps in some mad biologist's greenhouse where this spectacular bloom is in the process of being hybridised for world domination of the most gloriously forgiveable kind...

In the meantime, we can console ourselves with a pretend bunch for the weekend ~ like this armful carried by Virginia's granddaughter Eva in Paris and almost half her size. {Thanks yet again to dear Virginia!}  And on that note...

Happy Francophile Friday Fleurish to you!

  7. This is simply adorable! Eva is obviously very at-home in Paris. This might be a weensie, but it's packed with personality. Thanks for ending my tough with with some perfect Parisian peonies!

  12. World domination of peonies is trouble for those of us suffering from allergies.

    You've captured Eva's likeness perfectly. Adorable as ever Shell!

  13. There's so much sweetness in those illos, I feel as if I've just eaten a dozen macarons. Eva's face, her hair, the peonis--perfection.
