A favorite

A favorite . I love these more than roses.
I think everyone should have fresh flowers in their home , these came from my sweet neighbor , she has about 6 huge bushes of these peonies, so I am sure I will be having quite a few of them .
I have a small little plant of these and I can't wait till it's a huge bush to pick and pick from, nothing like fresh garden flowers , right? Hope you had a lovely weekend ,we just lounged around ,it was great ..nothing to do , no where to go .. there's no place like home..

What lovely peonies! They are one of my favs as well, but are just about done blooming here in Maryland. I was able to dry some though, so that I can enjoy them later as well.

Sounds like your weekend was just right!

Those peonies are beautiful. I wish I knew the secret to growing them. Florence

They are gorgeous. Mine are still in buds, but I keep trying to 'stare and will' them into blooming. Just a few more days left.

Andrea, I have some deep pink peonies just starting to bloom. Noticed them today when I was filling up all my birdfeeders! Peonies are one of my very favorites. Have a great memory involving peonies....saying farewell to a friend years ago....we stood by her peonies that were in full bloom, would grab bunches of petals, throw them in the air and let them float down on was a great memory!!!
Yes, I think Karen Valentine could help you....she is a great gal!!!! deb
