"Lessons from a peony...


"A flower does not think to compete with the flower next to it,
it just blooms."



"Peony Love #1"




"Peony Love #2"




"Peony Love #3"


Keep calm and bloom on.

    1. Heather, I can't talk the Better Half into planting these. He HATES the way they look once they get knocked down by rain. Soooooo....weekly visits to Trader Joes and Whole Foods for moi it is! :)

  2. Ooooh, gorgeous! Just adore that color! Thanks for your comment on my peony post at Focusing on Life. They are so photogenic, aren't they? The first ones my TJ's gets are the ones that fully open so you can see the center (like the ones in my post) and then they start getting in the fluffier ones like yours. Love them both!

  3. Peonys remind me of those tissue paper carnations we were taught to make as children, well I was anyway. If I am lucky I have one Peony tht blooms in my yard. Yours are lovely!

  8. Such pretty flowers. I used a wire cage to hold them up that was specifically for peony plants. Kept them neat looking through out the year.
