Betoverend / Enchanting


Vorige week zondag op Moederdag kreeg ik een prachtige bos pioenrozen van mijn kinderen. Dit zijn mijn lievelingsbloemen en ik was er dan ook heel erg blij mee, vooral omdat het eigenlijk niet het seizoen is voor pioenrozen in Nederland. Nóg groter was mijn verbazing toen bleek dat het hele "speciale" bloemen waren: ze veranderden totaal van kleur :D!!
Van een hardrood roze gekleurde knoppen veranderden deze schoonheden in prachtige crèmekleurige giganten, kijk maar:

Last Sunday on Mother’s Day I got a lovely bunch of peonies from my children. These are my favorite flowers and I was very happy with it, especially because it is still not the season for peonies here in The Netherlands. Even greater was my surprise when it turned out that the flowers were very "special": they changed completely in color!!
Of a hard red pink colored buttons these beauties changed into five gorgeous cream colored giants, see here:


De eerste en tweede dag zagen ze er zo uit
The first and second day they looked like this


Twee en drie dagen later.....
Sommige pioenen waren bijna 18 cm in doorsnede
Two and three days later....
 Some peonies were nearly 18 cm in diameter


Vierde en vijfde dag / Fourth and fifth day


Gistermorgen / Yesterday morning

De afgelopen erg drukke week, als ik maar een momentje tijd had, ging ik naar mijn pioentjes om aan ze te ruiken en om hun schoonheid te bewonderen. Deze ochtend lagen er afgevallen bloemblaadjes op de tafel en moest ik ze na een volle week genieten écht opruimen  :D!

This very busy past week, if I had a single moment, I went to my peonies to smell their lovely scent and to admire their beauty. This morning the petals were fallen on the table and after a whole week of pure joy, I had to throw them away :D!

Ik moet mij verontschuldigen voor het feit dat ik in de afgelopen week geen reacties op jullie blogs heb achtergelaten. Mijn gezinsleven en een aantal moeilijke opdrachten vroegen al mijn vrije tijd. Ik zal proberen om weer bij te lezen, als dat mogelijk is ;)!

I have to apologise for the fact that I didn’t left comments on your blogs this past week. My personal life and some difficult commissions asked all my free time. I’ll try to read up all your posts, if possible ;)!!

 Maar ik heb ook iets gemaakt in miniatuur....

But I also made something in miniature.....


Behalve het glas en de schijfjes citroen is alles door mij zelf gemaakt
Except the glass and the slice of lemon is everything made by me

Op mijn nieuwe tuinbank heb ik genoten van een kopje thee na het maken van een bos roze pioenrozen in miniatuur ;). Voor wie zou ik deze bloemen gemaakt hebben…..?

Sitting on my new garden bench I've enjoyed a cup of tea after making a bouquet of pink peonies in miniature ;). For whom would I have made these flowers……….? 


Deze pioenrozen kunnen voor één van jullie zijn, want het is een give away ;! Wie wil er meedoen aan mijn kleine give away van deze roze pioenrozen? 
Je hoeft alleen maar een reactie achter te laten op dit bericht om mee te kunnen doen. Op je blog de link vermelden wordt gewaardeerd, maar hoeft niet per se.
Op 6 juni zal ik een winnaar bekend maken.

These peonies could be made for one of you, because it is a give away ;)! Who want to join my small give away of these pink peonies? 

All you have to do is just leaving a comment on this post, that's all. A link to my blog on your blog is appreciated, but is not necessary.
On the 6th of June I'll announce who the winner is.

Een warm welkom aan mijn nieuwe volgers en aan allen, die mijn blog bezoeken en een reactie achterlaten: hartelijk dank :D. Fijn weekend allemaal!

A warm welcome to my new followers and to all of you, who visit my blog and leave a comment: thank you so much :D. Have a nice weekend!

What lovely peonies! I have not seen any that changed color as they begin to open before. It was a great mothers day gift. :-)

Your miniature ones are so well done you could have fooled us all if you had not said they were miniatures.

I want! I want! I love your peonies both the real ones and the miniatures. I know how much time it takes to make a flower and these are gorgeous.
Hugs, Drora

Elizabeth S zei

Hello Ilona! I love peonies and I have some that are a white variety called Duchess de Nemurs ( I have probably spelled the name incorrectly). My peonies are incredibly fragrant and the flower heads are approximately 4 inches diameter. I brought them with me when I moved and it took a couple of years for them to adjust but they are fabulous and getting very close to blooming as I write this. However, they are not anything to be compared to the ones that you have shown in the photos, they are MAGNIFICENT! I'd be interested in finding out the variety. They are real show stoppers!
AND your tea tray and mini peonies are delightful and I am as usual totally impressed by the quality and the style of your work, which is always wonderful!

Josje zei

Hi Ilona, Gorgeous peonies, both the big and small ones! Guess what I got a year ago for Mothers day? Exactly! Check out my post from last year about them: http://josje-bouwt.blogspot.nl/2012_05_01_archive.html

Isn't that funny? This year I also got a bunch of peonies, this time the ones you made in miniature.

Your flowers look great Ilona, thanks for a lovely giveaway!

Helma zei

Prachtige bos bloemen van je kinderen, Ilona . Zo mooi hoe ze veranderen in kleur....is echt genieten!
Ik heb je al eerder verteld dat Pioenrozen ook mijn lievelingsbloemen zijn en ja ik zag ze dit weekend weer overal te koop in 1:1 . Ik zou ze dus graag wel willen hebben maar wordt het een ander dan heb ik gewoon pech. Het plezier van het geven is het belangrijkste!

Groetjes en nog een fijne 2e Pinksterdag.

Catherine / Mooghiscath zei

j'adore aussi les pivoines , celles de mon jardin ne sont pas encore fleuries avec toute la pluie qui tombe sans le soleil , j'ai peur qu'elles pourrissent avant d'éclore .Ton service à thé en transparence rend très bien .

Pippibär zei

These peonies that your children have given you are a wonder of nature. Fantastic job of mother nature!
...and I think the tiny peonies are a wonder of miniature! You did exactly the same fantastic job in miniature as mother nature did in real!
Of course, I would freak out with joy if I could have so beautiful miniature flowers like this, who not? So please count me in!
Hugs Melli

Lieve Ilona, wat prachtige pioenrozen, zulke die van kleur veranderen heb ik nog nooit gezien, en wat zijn ze lekker groot !!!
De miniatuur uitvoering die jij gemaakt hebt ziet er ook ongelooflijk mooi uit, en je doet ze iemand kado.............ik zou het een eer vinden jouw prachtige pioentjes in mijn rose cottage te mogen zetten :):)
Dus ja! ja! ik doe heel graag mee in jouw give away en zet het op mijn Blog NU !!

Lieve groetjes Mieke

BiWuBär zei

The one time I'm dropping by late... *LOL* Your children made a perfect choice with these peonies - I've never seen some with such incredible colour changing before. My, that must have been exciting every day. And they were simply beautiful in any appearance - and so are your miniature ones. Perfect as everything you do - and of course I would be over the moon if I would be the lucky one to win them. But I have one advantage, I'm on the lucky side - if I don't win your miniature ones, I can simply wait for my real ones to bloom because we have a soft pink peony in our garden... ;O)

Hugs

Roelie zei

Wat een prachtige pioenen heb je gekregen, ik ken ze niet. En jij zou Ilona niet zijn als je ze in 1:12 na zou maken met een geweldig resultaat.

Groetjes, Roelie

latchkey and jonquil zei

Those are amazing peonies, your children have very good taste! I have planted three in my RL garden for the first time, apparently they take about three years to flower, so I shall have to be so patient (I am an impatient gardener most of the time!)

You have managed to capture the billowy delight of peonies so well... and the delicate pink is lovely. I'd love to have a chance in your giveaway.

I hope you find more time soon - I know how it is with comissions, and if I could make a magic time producing machine, I would!

hugs Jonquil
